All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest.
When I presented the idea of holding a whirligig contest to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking For Mere Mortals) he and I agreed it would be a fun summer event. The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over.
So it was decided early on that this would be the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest. So stay tuned for the 2nd Annual Whirligig Wars next year. being held in the month of July 2013.
Along with the great prizes donated to us by the Event Sponsors All of the contestants who participated in the event will receive and official “2012 Whirligig Wars Survivor” T-shirt.

I am looking forward to next years event! I think this comment from Jerry Brown AKA TheRealWarrentby the contest’s 1st place winner really sums it up. Jerry states

“Awesome job Laney, and all the guys that did these I say the future of whirligigs is in the books immortalized on Youtube for future generations to enjoy and be inspired.”

I couldn’t agree more. Many of our contestants were first time Whirligig builders and have stated that they will be building more. and most are already planning their whirligig entry for next years event.

I look forward to seeing Some of you LumberJocks in the event Next Year.. :O)
