The Reg Bailey Cup


The Reg Bailey Cup was presented to the Club by the Splinter Group, who meet socially in memory of a past member, Reg Bailey.

Reg was a founder member of Kennet Valley Woodturners and served for a number of years on the committee. He was a popular and helpful club member, and an excellent turner.

The Cup is awarded in an open "Member's Choice" competition on the evening of the AGM, where members present vote freely for their favourite entry.

The Cup is inscribed 'The Reg Bailey Trophy'

Due to the low numbers of entries in recent years, it has been decided to modify the format from 2011 onwards in order to encourage more members to enter the competition. The monthly competition is postponed on this evening, and members are asked to place their entries in sections marked NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE, and ADVANCED. Voting to be carried out in consideration of the entrants ability.

It is proposed to repeat this format for future years, and hopefully, this will encourage more members to enter a piece of turning which they feel will show their ability in the best light.

The winner of the Reg Bailey Cup 2017 was Denis Winter
