Our members Charlie Walker and Ian Curtis talk about the shows they attend, Charlie is seeking rosettes and points whilst Ian is seeking customers.

Charlie gave us lots of tips about judges and what they are looking for, explaining the unwritten rules of proportion for horn sticks, straight shanks, good joints and much more.

Ian told stories of the customers who buy his sticks at the country shows he attends, simple thumbsticks are good sellers, being easy to make they are priced accordingly.
