I have an idea to add to the fray. . . maybe next year, you can run a best magazine competition
between Renaissance Magazine, Faire Magazine, Faerie Magazine, The Pyrates
Way magazine, No Quarter Given newsletter,  and Pirates Magazine. . . . just
a thought.

As long as there are enough people eligible and the Ren Fest Awards crew are willing to pick the categories, I'm game.
