Brief (informal) announcement about judging dates
Just a heads up. For those of you who don't already know, LPC is being run primarily by two people: Myself (Bart Kelsey), and Chris Webber. It's essentially up to us to coordinate the contest and judging and such, and it's turned out to be a very big job.
Both of us have lives, and it so happens that the next two weeks (August 1-14 or so) are going to be a bit crazy for both of us. Chris will be moving, and my wife is getting abdominal surgery on the 1st and will likely need special attention for a while. I'll be generally around, but I'm not sure how much help my wife will need, so I may need to focus on her for a little while.
With respect to judging dates, even if everything goes perfectly, we'll need about a week to get the judging forms organized, set up, and tested, and another week to get all of the entries judged. So, if all goes well and there aren't any major snags, I hope to announce the results for both contest phases by the 15th of August. If we do hit any hangups, or things otherwise go slower than expected, the results may not be announced until the 30th.
I will do my best to keep everyone posted. Feel free to (occasionally) bug me on IRC if you're wondering where we are in the process.
Thanks for your patience,
