A&S 50 Challenge Display
An A&S 50 Challenge Display will be part of the festivities at the North Oaken Arts and Sciences  Faire.  Challenge participants are invited to display their projects.  An entrant need not have completed a project or challenge in order to participate.

Space is limited, so if your projects are large, please bring a representative sample only. Documentation is not required.

The A&S 50 Challenge Display will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be located in the hallway,  just beyond Troll. All items must be picked up by 5 p.m.  Space will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

You say you haven’t heard about the Challenge? From the web site:

“The A&S 50 Challenge involves doing 50 things in the Arts and Sciences between May 1st AS 42/2007 and May 1st AS 50/2015, in honor of the SCA's 50th Birthday. The Challenge is a chance to develop skills and learn more about what interests you in a non-competitive, community-based environment. YOU decide what you want to do over the eight-year span, and get encouragement from the Challenge Community along the way.”

Questions? Contact the Regional MOAS Lady Jolicia.
