Note: Our Imperial Sir has requested that competitions be deferred until the afternoon as he is scheduling a break in the sessions so that our Temple Divans and Representatives can watch this year's events. While we have traditionally competed from 7am - 2pm, we will be competing this year from 11am - 5pm. The banquet and parade are on Tuesday so this should provide a more relaxed and enjoyable event.
