As ye know, our Captain Stephanie just went through surgery. I haven't heard if she be up for helmin' the ship, so we be awaiting word. Raise a tankard to her health, me hearties!
We'll stay in port an extra week, and if Captain Stephanie be ready t' take the helm then, it be hers. If not, yer admiral will step up t' the wheel. We be castin' off on the weekend o' December 5th. Get yer submissions in to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday the 4th.
Ye've got extra time, so I expect yer very best elitist bastardry!
