Thanks for this, Patricia! I won't have anything ready to go, but know a few who might. How's your weather? Winter usually reaches you much earlier than it arrives here. :-)

Well. I've been in Gunnison (just south of CB) for 19 years and never knew this group existed-- although I knew about the annual conference. I don't know if I'll be able to be a part of the contest this year, but I sure can get involved. Thank you!

Alex, you're the busiest person I know.

Hi Teresa -- Feel free to spread the word. The Sandy is a highly respected contest (and totally unrelated to Hurricane Sandy who was just plan mean).

Julie, I lived in Colorado for ten years before I even heard of the conference, much less the contest. It's one of Colorado's best kept secrets (although I hope to spoil that).

Margot, I agree. I'm thinking about submitting one of my manuscripts, just to see what happens.

Hi Tammy. You're most welcome.
