CMLC at the Cairns Show
CMLC hosts a stand at the Arts & Crafts Section section of the Cairns Show each year.
CMLC demonstrates faceting and gives talks on cabochoning. Members are encouraged to showcase their work through the club: members’ cut stones and hand made jewellery is exhibited.
CMLC organises lapidary competition judging. Judges are not permitted to see the names of entrants of work they are judging. Members and others can enter individually. Details below. There is a section for novices. While there is prize money, it is traditionally not accepted by club members who win.
Members are needed to help staff the stand but they must be competition entrants.
