Grand Pent Winners:

17 were the number who strove for mastery of many categories. Again the judges labored mightily and brought us those who have demonstrated surpassing skills in no less (and frequently more) than 5 of the categories listed above
1st place - Lady Elizabeth of Rivenstar (due to an error Lady Elizabeth was not recognized at the event)
2nd Place - Mistress Elena Rueda vinda de Lochcarron
3rd Place - Ulf Thorfinnsson

On the 24th day of March in the snowy Shire of Panther Vale many artisans gathered together to share their gifts. The judges labored mightily and thus the following artisans are recognized for their outstanding efforts. Awards were not presented for categories that only contained a single item so that entrants could re-enter that category if they choose. However, they still deserve the recognition for their work and so you will find them listed but noted as single-entries.
