Note #20 by Caya at Sun Feb 21 22:24:51 2010 [EST] on board witchesguild

Wotchers all! This is a repost since it is near scrolling off! This also includes the update about mocks! This is not limited to only skilled witches! Newbies can also participate!
Witch Trials are set for Saturday, February 27 at 21:00 GMT! They will be held in Lancre Town where Charlie hangs in his lonesome (awww). Here are the time conversions for some time zones:
Pacific time (ex: California) - 13:00 or 1:00PM on Saturday, Feb 27, 2010

So! If you have an entry, please mudmail me by the 22th confirming you want to make something (give specific details of categories) and the 26th for the name of the trick/fruitbat and skill for mock with the rest of the details needed (see below). I can take last minute entries, but please don't force me to do so many last minute ones. :(
We have many amazing sponsors that I huggle lots and lots for not making me empty my bank account! Please thank Nattick, Grin, Geryon, Staria and the AM Daily, citizens of Djelibeybi, Fole and the Illuminated Teapot, and Ixtlan of the Tanglefoot Trading Company for the lovely monetary donations! Also thank Nut, Frazyl, and Dextar for donating some prizes, too!
This year's trials will be somewhat different from the previous trials. We will have 3 competitions!

Tricks (only 1 freestyle trick and 1 themed trick max!)

Freestyle 1-2 stages
Freestyle 3+ stages
Theme (any amount of stages)
---This year's theme is: Valentine's Day

Mocking Competition (2 mock submissions max!)

Freestyle (there were not enough submissions, so I changed the category)
Only rule is that you need to mock a valid skill. You can't just mock something like Caya-ing or something.

Best-Dressed Fruitbat

There are no categories and it will be freestyle. Even though it says best-dressed, it can also be what they are carrying, their name, etc. It is possible that a person will vote based on everything they see!
I am aware there are witches who believe in only having naked bats, but it is all for good fun! You can even submit your naked bat if you want! We shall just have a competition where people will vote for the bat they like the most (traditionalists can vote on traditional nakedness)!

Your name, the competition you are entering, and, depending on the competition:
Tricks: name of the trick, what category you are entering in, summary of what your trick is about
Mocks: what category, what skill you are mocking
Fruitbat: name of fruitbat
There may be changes in the competition due to how many we have that participates this year. Please stay tuned for updates! If this gives you any motivation, the plan is that first place will get at least 10 royals IN ADDITION to an item of choice! We will go by order of who wins to get the prizes. Also, applicants will still get a reward if they do not win!
