but I thought I should make special mention of the building competition to be celebrated in October.

I am sure that the prizes will be interesting to some of you so if you can scrape together the cash to pay for your time in Granada it might be a good opportunity to get some exposure.
There seem to be no concerts programmed for that time period but there is no reason why we couldn't come up with something just to make a round week out of it.

September 30 is the last day for registration for participation in this competition. I personally am counting on this competition becoming an annual event just as the organizers are hoping. There is no reason why in coming years it could not follow the lines of the great instrument making competitions (Paris, Cremona) and become the international reference for great guitar making. Why shouldn't Granada attract the biggest international names in the guitar once a year? In the meantime, I have heard that quite a few makers have signed up already but as the limit is 50 participants there is still room for you to register.
Great, I might come without excuses.John Ray wrote: ↑Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:29 pmHello Gerhard,
As it stands, the prizes are not interesting to me. My goal is to convince the organizers to make a few changes and make the competition attractive to makers like yourself. Then you will have an excuse to come to Granada. I have my eye on a bottle of wine that I would like to share with you.
