2012 Competition

By Sue Stone

The scarecrows were a triumph again. Thank you so much to all our competitors who enthusiastically entered into the spirit with such imaginative witty
creations. A pity several were destroyed by vandals the night before the show. The judges comments are listed below. Our thanks go to Bob and Diana Holman who bravely took on this task this year. A big thank you to Tony Bates who once again made a special photographic display at the show set to music.

Judges Comments

All the Scarecrows were fantastic and gave us a great deal of pleasure to see them. It was really difficult to select the winners, but we took into consideration the
attention to detail with the modeling of faces, hand etc facial expressions, body shape and posture, skill of staging, originality of ideas and that important touch of
humour that many of them incorporated.
