Will the event steward for Melees & Mayhem, whosoever that good gentle might be, please contact me at their convenience?  I wish to ask a question about sponsoring a competition at that event.
Thank you so much!

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.  Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
