Ok, we got it onto the schedule, but we put it at 4 not 6

Here is a view of that spot on the printed schedule:

There was no way to fit it in at 6, and actually the end
of the Icehouse prelims, when the finalist medallions are
being awarded just before the start of the finals, is a
great time to award this extra pyramid award.

There is very little room, the best name we came up with
was "Ice Awards" - does that work?  Or would you prefer
"Fan Awards" or something else that fits in this tiny space?

The signs you make to put on your literature table can call
it something longer - but this is all the space available
on the printed schedule on the Lab Report.

I will be sending the file to the printer on Monday, so
let me know this weekend if you want to change the name.

Thanks everyone for organizing this fan award!

Well, since we've gotten some positives and no negatives, it's decided:
- The voting for the Icehouse Community awards for best new game of 2009
will close at 5pm Saturday.
- The awards will be presented immediately after the awards for the 21st
International Icehouse Tournament, at 6pm.

We'll figure out the exact nature of the award later.  Is that all you
need for the printer?

Andy draws all the official medallions, and I think they still
make them all in-house. If you'd like to ask them to include
yours, soonest is best.

The medallion disks are manufactured by Mr. Button, then I attach the
ribbons and back side stickers.

I've already sent in and gotten back this year's set of medallion disks.


Besides, I think it's better if it's something other than a Medallion.
This is a fan-run event, it should have a fan-created award thingy which
stands out from the Medallions.

PS: I'm finalizing the Lab Report so that it can be sent to the printer
