The Musketeers (27th Title Challenge) “Baton Change” Notice

a writing by Richard Gildea

(Please note this is not a VN sponsored event)


The Musketeers wish to thank our friend Denis following his superb tenure in carrying the Baton during the "26th Musketeers Title Challenge”.

Denis appears to have enjoyed himself enormously and was somewhat overwhelmed by the response. He has been more than generous to all, by responding in the true spirit of "The Challenge" with encouraging and astute reviews.

His alternative “Acrostic Challenge” allowed participants to come up with their very own “Title.”
All entrants have risen to the “Challenge” as never before, with multiple submissions from many of our “Challenge” contributors.

The variety of takes in his chosen “Format” plus the wonderful responses, have once again made “The Run” so very enjoyable.

The Musketeers have now asked our good friend Dwayne Rankin if he would feel able to pick up the “Baton” for the “27th Musketeers Challenge” run.
We are pleased to say he has very kindly accepted

Dwayne has many friends and admirers on VN. His wonderful poetry, which incorporates both his own unique take on Nature and Life in general, is also complimented by the wisdom he imparts by way of response.
He also displays love and sincerity to all on VN, we have no doubt this will stand him in good stead throughout his tenure of the "Baton"

The forthcoming run will commence following Dwayne's careful consideration of his chosen “Title”
So standby everyone.-

We would also like to take this opportunity in welcoming our good friend Edwin Jepson to the ranks of Sir Roy’s Musketeers.
Edwin we feel displays all the attributes required in the wielding of one's sword and the doffing of one's hat.

He has sworn to uphold the honour and integrity of “The Challenge” and ensure safe passage for all "Fair Maidens" of VN.

Regards from the Musketeers,
Keith, William, Richard & Edwin (Porthos, Athos, Aramis & D’Artagnan)
