Greetings, Calontir!

Reposting from the Calontir FB group, for those who aren't members or

Just a reminder that Queen's Prize submissions close in a short two weeks
(August 31st)! After that Countess Branwen and I will be matching up
entrants and judges, and finalizing the schedule. I'm sure Pennsic had
everyone's attention earlier this month, but so far the entries are running
light and there is LOTS of room for more.

Judges - well, we always need more don't have to be any
particular award level to be a judge, all you need is knowledge relevant to
the categories for which you volunteer. The more expertise the better of
course, but if you haven't judged before, I'll bet you'll be pleasantly
surprised by nuggets of information and technique you learn from the other
judges while talking to the entrants, as well as just increasing your
circle of people interested in the same arts and sciences as you are! The
judge form is here:

I want to most strongly encourage anyone who is considering an entry, and
ESPECIALLY a Minor entry, to send it in during the next two weeks. I'm so
proud of Calontir's great reputation in A&S, but to keep that tradition
alive takes artisans at the AoA and novice level to work, exhibit, and
progress, including our youngest, who are the future of the Society and
Kingdom! The entry form is here:
