13271Re: [midatlanticretro] VCF Exhibit Rules and Categories
- Jul 1, 2009I know the rules, but my underlying point is that judging was not taken
seriously last year.
1) Last year there was no judging by category.
2) I don't believe the BOD members should be judges.
Without exhibits this is just a symposium. The musuem and the exhibits are
what makes this event unique and should not be taken for granted.
