This year we managed to enter 28 articles at the Royal Show in Pietermaritsburg ( a record for us), 6 articles being entered by Mary Coaker in the Senior Open) section.We had so many articles to choose from, thanks also to our faithful “Monday Ladies” from Underberg, who come regularly on Mondays to teach our Residents their special skills. However due to the show’s rules,we could only choose 3 articles per Division/Class.

The quality of everyone’s work, including the ones not entered, is very high. So to those whose articles received mentions, as well as to those whose articles were not entered, Well done, and keep trying.

I am looking forward to seeing what you produce for 2018!!!
