November 21, 2022, 6:05 AM · What about the VSO Violin Making Awards?

You're welcome...

I can't open the link and can't copy it as it extends behind the Shar ad.

Was it worth it? All I saw was a list of names, and that for the VSA Awards. Nothing about the subject of MY enquiry (the VSO Awards - mind you, if I tried, I could probably win one, provided nobody else competed - I'm not even sure I could make an accurately VSO).
