NEWSLETTER FOR APRIL 2003
Big fun in Big D|
Promising a great convention and pulling one off are two different things. But, APSE has been doing this for a while and based on recent success, we may have this down to a science. This year's event will take place June 25-28 at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, although everyone is welcome to come early and stay late.

Finding our way
Bill Eichenberger: The numbers went like this: 92 judges, including 41 first-timers; 1,804 writing entries; 804 section entries; 8 section Triple Crown winners; 1 major rules change; 1 lost Federal Express package full of writing entries that was ultimately found; and no major controversies, if your threshhold for controversy is fairly high.
