2015 NBCC Competition dates

I hope you are getting ready for a busy new season of Blacksmith Competitions.

I’m writing mid January 2015 so there’s still plenty of time for you to make something for the static competitions. Each Competition Round has classes peculiar to the individual show, but if you base your efforts on 1. Static Traditional design and make class, 2. Static Contemporary design and make class, 3. Live forging.

As the Shows submit their schedules I will post them for you, I’ll also offer some hints to successful competition submissions in a later posts.
