Pretty sure most know about it given how often all the threads spend time at the beginning of the recent posts list there’s just always been a huge disparity between the number of people reading a thread and posting in it(read count listed at the bittom of the op in each thread). It does surprise me how few of the forum regulars respond to updates though. The contests thread itself I believe gets stickied already in its subforum.

I’ve hinted about doing a build, but never committed to making a thread…

As much as I’d love to be in the mix, this time around Real Life™ is taking precedence. Nothing bad is happening, quite the opposite actually.

I know there’s a bit of time left yet, & I have a pile of parts & even an idea(!), but I can’t see it getting done.

I’m watching all the builds when I get chance – there’s some great stuff going on this year Beer

Sometimes real life gets in the way. Silly

My light is now officially finished. Well it is if the wood doesn’t all fall off before the build time is up. Facepalm

T, t, t, t, tick, tick, tick, tick. I’m channeling Styx. Only two week ends left and I’m back to working full time. The good news is work is good therapy for the wrist but I’ll have to figure out what I can bring with me on the road if I’m going to be able to finish. It’s times like this I wish were rich and retired.

There are lots of times I wish I was rich and retired. I’m half retired and maybe half rich…. or is it half poor……… Facepalm

I’m glad it doesn’t end until late in the day tomorrow. I’m still trying to make it in time! VOB, I don’t envy you entering here at the last, but your machine work looks excellent! Love

The competition ends in 2 hours! Please finish your build threads in time and don’t change it after the time is up! Posting more comments to those threads is ok, but posts with timestamp later than the end time will not be taken into account.

Judges will start their work right after the competition time ends. Judging will take about 1-2 weeks, so please be patient and enjoy the build threads meanwhile!

So many beautiful and amazing lights done this year. Such a wonderful tribute and such a talented body of members here. We are all blessed to have this little corner of the world. I thank all of you who tried this year. I have seen things that I never would have imagined and that is the fun part, learning new things, trying new things. 

Thank you BLF and thank you all for such an entertaining year of builds. May this little corner of the world stay a special place for years to come.
