Competition weekends aren’t just a chance to have your dreams smashed and your self confidence dented! No, you also get the chance to see how bad your painting is in comparison to the talented and dedicated!

Winner of the painting competition and all-round nice guy Steve Charlton! He also was joint first in the comp😝 Bastogne Americans, so imaginative. He even put snow into the creases on the tents for God's sake!
