So the first order of business was to update the awards page. I posted the link on FB with the following:
Shameless, yes. Boastful and proud, yes. The guy I am, yes. But make no mistake, this is serious business.
80 total awards. 28 for mead of which 26 have come in only the last 12 months!!! More career stats: 40% win rate. And that is with an average of 8 entries per contest. I've missed placing in a contest 1 time in 7 years. I work like crazy to keep my unruly mad science in check, but I also seem to get results. I am happy to be here learning these crafts as well as having the opportunity to share it all with you. Thank you for propelling me day after day!
