I think it's a very "graphic artist" way of doing websites with text embedded in graphics instead of standing on it's own.

violetrose:
Editing nightmare! You have to recreate and upload a new image every time you want to add someone or want to edit the list!

Lord Figaro:
Doesn't make a whole lotta sense, but then we are talking about management here.

SleepyArcher:
Hey Groomporter can you find out if they are going to have the Archery Contest again? I suppose I could call but I feel I wont get anywhere with the office people.

groomporter:
I'll see what I can find out. I have a vague memory of it not happening last year because they suddenly realized they didn't really have anyplace suitable to do it safely.

I did find the rules from last year. Would this fit in the archery booth in the games area that's around the corner from the BLT?
