|Balderdash 2019 Coasters|
Awarded to all team captains and a randomly-selected assortment of active participants, these awesome paper coasters are sure to hold up your coffee, tea, or beverage of choice in style during all your future spinning projects!
A hearty thank you! to Yakityak for providing this year's motto!
|Best Tall Tale|
This prize is for the real project with the best story, as nominated by our panel of judges and chosen by participant vote. In order to be considered, the project needs to have a valid URL (link) to an off-site page that tells the (fabricated) tale with the appropriate level of awesomeness. There will be a dedicated thread on Ravelry for these whoppers but your tale of woe (cakes) can be at any other offsite location. Remember, though, that your story does need to be accessible to the judges (not behind a paywall, for example).

The best "transmogrified" story will be selected in the Ravelry Balderdash Forum.
