Keeper of the Central Flame Arts Triathlon

Do you have entries in several categories over at least two tracks? Competitors who enter at least three categories over two or more tracks will be eligible for Keeper of the Central Flame Triathlon!  For example, an embroidered bag can be entered into Track One:  Non-Counted Embroidery with a drawstring entered in Track One:  Cord Making.  The bag can also be entered into Track Four:  Accessories/Shoes.

The winner of the Triathlon will be named Keeper of the Central Flame and will hold that title until the next competition is held!
