Look what we found in the Shrieking Shack! It’s a whole list of contests!

This is by no means an all-inclusive enumeration, but here you will find the titles of upcoming contests for the month of November, the deadlines, and the websites where fellow explorers can discover further information. Please feel free to post further interesting contests in the comments section!

The Marauders thank the mysterious someone who left this for us to find . . . Hopefully there will be more for December?

Until then . . .
