ONS - One Night Show
A One Night Show (ONS) will also take place during the meeting.  Each person attending should bring in one artwork to display to everyone at the meeting.  The best judged artwork will receive a ribbon.  Remember, bringing in an artwork for the ONS is a defensive move as the judge is chosen from those people that do NOT bring in a piece.  How's that for an unveiled threat.
