Greetings from Mistress Caterina Fregoso, Your last-minute drop-dead  A&S 
I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who helped pull off our  
Shire's A&S competition this year.  A great big thank you goes to Lady  Catrin, 
without whom I would have been totally lost.  She set everything  up, helped me 
get started, and spent a good bit of her day under the pavilion  with me when 
she wasn't going to do half a million other things.  Her  boundless energy 
and good natured spirit are truly both admirable and  inspirational, as well as 
Thanks also to Terrence, Padraig, and Alric, who provided wheeled transport  
for me and my belongings.  I wouldn't have made it through the heat without  
you!  Also, thank you to everyone who helped carry things for me--Polydore,  
Sebastian, Terrence, Alric, Padraig, Eleanor, Catrin--if I missed anyone, I'm  
sorry.  It was really hot, and my memory goes down the tubes when I get  
Thanks also to those who helped to judge, in particular HE Ameline and Lord  
Sebastian.  Your input was so greatly appreciated, and I hope that you  
enjoyed yourselves, too.  Another thank you to all who entered and voted  for their 
favorite entrant.  We couldn't have done it without you!  
Mostly, I would like to thank HL Bice for all the hard work that she put  
into coordinating this A&S event.  This has been her baby for a long,  long time, 
and if it had not been for last minute injuries to her husband and  dog, she 
would have done it all again.  She made the beautiful judges'  gifts--hand 
knitted pouches made from a period pattern published in a recent  TI.  She made 
it so easy for me to step in and fill her shoes at the last  minute, and 
believe me, they are big shoes to fill (I'm not talkin' size,  either).  It was an 
honor to help her after all that she has done for so  many years to help 
others.  Bice, you were really missed this year--don't  make us have to do without 
you next year!!!
I hope that everyone had as much fun as I did!
Yours in Service to Crown and Kindgom,
Mistress Caterina Fregoso, O.L.
