The designs were presented in the December newsletter for USFG members. They are now up on the website for the general public. Remember, to submit a stone for competition, you must be an active, paid member of the USFG. If you have any questions about when your membership expires, click on “My Account” (upper right of the page), then click on “Subscriptions”, just to the right of “Home”.
A new addition this year is a button called “International Entries” to help handle payments for return shipping overseas.
A reminder that this year entries must be received by the stonehandler by the deadline of August 30, 2017.
If you follow this link, it lists the stones for 2017 as the same stones as last year. I Googled: “USFG Competition.” Clicked on the heading and this is where it took me! Some unwitting souls might find the wrong designs!
It takes several months for stones to be anonymized, sent to judges, judged, sent back, collated, results approved by the board, and returned to their owners all over the world. The results will be available as soon as the process can be completed.
