Since this is a jointly sponsored event be prepared to sign an event-specific waiver. Competitions will be listed in the August Page. The theme for the bardic competitions is brought to you by the letter J - filk a song that the recording artist or songwriter's name has a J in it.

Saturday and Sunday will be full of competitions, auctions and the world famous Ducal Garage Sale. Monday will wrap up with Monday Morning Wrestling and tear down.

As always we need stuff — your stuff, my stuff, everybody's stuff! Donations to use as competition prizes, to fuel the Monster Auctions From Hell, and to sell at the garage sale. We can't hold a three hour auction for your listening and shopping pleasure if we don't have your items to sell back to you, can we now? Remember, services as well as items make great auction donations. Dinners and such-like have been some of our most successful offerings! If you have any questions about whether a particular item would make a good donation, please contact the Supreme Commissar! Also contact her if you need to donate items before the event.
