As the next Journal will be at press while we are at SLICS, I thought it best to give members an update on the status of the article awards.
Below are 2 of the 3 categories to be judged. Unfortunately there were not enough qualifying articles for the Dave Andrews Memorial Award to be granted. This award is for shotshell related articles. There has to be at least 3 original articles of minimum 1200 words. Therefore this award will be deferred for 3 years, per our guidelines.
