Hello, good gentles, y'all:

Many people have pre-registered to compete for the honour of being named the
Sixteeth Artisan for the Barony of the Steppes.  The tables are filling
fast, so if you would like to compete, please go to the event website and
complete the entry form.  This is especially helpful if you have special
needs such as floor space for a dress form or easel, or if you need an
electrical outlet.  We will accommodate non-pre-registered persons as best
as we can on the morning of Artisan, which is just next Saturday, August

Also, please indicate if you are entering a time-sensitive food item.  While
comfits and cakes might wait all day to be tasted, the judges are very aware
that some foods are lovely at a specified time and nasty an hour later.
They are planning to judge all time-sensitive entries starting at noon, and
have asked me to indicate persons entering those items on the judging form
so that they can be sure to taste the foods at their peak.


We do have several persons who have indicated they are entering for
commentary only, and those items will be displayed on a specific group of
tables.  We have room for a few more display-only entries, so feel free to
pre-register for this space as well.

While we are on the artistic endeavors, Mistress Kalida has asked me to
announce that anybody who entered the Onsite Embroidery competition at
Steppes Warlord may submit their entry to her at Steppes Artisan.  Give it
to her at her display table by 2:00pm so that it may be judged, and the
winner announced in court that evening.  If you are not able to attend and
want to enter, contact me for assistance.

Finally, the Steppes C&I Guild has announced that they will host a charter
painting table in the hall during the day.  If you would like to paint a
charter, even if you have never done so before, come to their table.  They
will have charter blanks and supplies, or you may bring your own paints and

Additional information about the event, including the schedule of starting
times for the competitions, will be posted by the event steward.  It may
also be found on the event website.
