So, with that more or less done, I went to research upcoming events. Well, that further complicated things. You may think that starting in August, one could get into shows in October. Well, that is apparently impossible. The show I thought would be a great start wanted the application in by March 1st. March 1st and this show is in mid-October. And is really quite small.
The other show I was thinking of is the same weekend as a training for work, so sadly, that is out too. I'll keep you up to date as soon as I have somewhere and something to show.
