Attention all artists!

Attention all artists!

We have managed to tie up both of our artistic Guests of Honor with designs for the sales shirts this year. This leaves us without a "mad science' themed design for our volunteer shirts. Love mad science? Have some great ideas? How about a nice line drawing to reward our volunteers for their hard work?

Deadline November 1, 2010
Send designs to [email protected]

Fabulous prizes to be awarded for the design chosen!
