I’m in the same boat as a lot of other people that I’ve seen posting recently – the weather here (in Portugal) is terrible – it’s cold and wet, by which I mean it’s very very very wet.
As a hobbyist I work out of (in summer), and in (in winter), of a garage – there’s no heating and the roof leaks.
I wasn’t able to get in there through most of December, and January has so far been a write off. The forecast is currently showing me about 5 hours of reasonable weather for the rest of this month.
There’s simply no way I can enter the competition this time, which is a great shame.
I’m not, given other people’s posts, the only one in this situation.
I’m not complaining, well, I am sortof, but July can be unbearably hot too, not to mention being the summer holidays when a lot of people go on holiday.

How about changing the competitions from “Winter/Summer”, to “Spring/Autumn”? Even changing them to “Summer/Fall” would, from where I’m sitting, trapped indoors with the fire raging, be a giant leap forward.
I’m not an expert in antipodean weather, but I think this change might benefit them too.

Maygbe they could give a few months longer notification so those in your position would have longer to build?

From the description of your delema, KnickKnack, how about aiming ahead or maximize the favorable time to stock up on your projects?
