Youth and Family Activities

Greetings one and all!! This year at Long and Short there will be an all ages A&S competition. There will be a Category for Adults, and probably 2 for kids (divided by age) depending on the number of entrants. This will be a prize competition, and entry into it is simple. You need to bring something you made and a brief write up about what it is (time period, culture, materials). Your display cannot take up more then 2 feet of the table. The judging will be by the populace by beans in jars. This is simply meant to be for fun. I will have some fun prizes for the winners!!!

Please contact me ahead of time and let me know you want to participate so I can make sure there are enough tables.
