end of the November 7, 2009, Galaxy meeting.  (Mark Hardick, 3124 Woodsboro

3. All entries must be unpublished or unaccepted for publication at the time 
of submission.

8. Type your name, address, phone number, title and category on a cover 
sheet and attach to each manuscript with a paper clip.  Do not staple.

9. Enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope (large enough for all your 
entries) if you are not planning to come to the December awards luncheon, or 
arrange for someone to pick up your entries.

     There must be a minimum of three entries in a category before it will 
be judged and prizes awarded.
      Awards will be presented at the December Awards Luncheon on 
December 5, 2009.  Manuscripts will be returned at that time.
      Certificates and cash will be awarded in each category.  1st Place: 
$15, 2nd Place: $10, 3rd Place: $5.  Certificates will go to honorable 
mentions.  The Bonnie Speer Creme de la Creme Award ($30) goes to the best 
of the 1st Place winners.
      Judges will be selected by the Chairperson based on their 
experience in the genre and willingness to write critiques.  The judges’ 
decisions are final.
