However, SNEFA IS STILL HOLDING A MAIL-IN CONTEST!
Cash prizes, ribbons, division championships and goodies will still be awarded.
The shoes are still the same, make all four in your division, make sure to include appropriate nails with each shoe!
The Shoe List is posted on the website https://www.snefa.org/news and on Facebook.
