Greetings unto the bards and populace of An Tir. As has been announced in the Crier and in Court in past months, the Crown has determined that An Tir would be well served by adding a Bardic Arts Champion to the roster of the Champions of An Tir. This first Kingdom Bardic Championship (KBC) will be held on September 26-28, 2003 and will be hosted by Wyewood at the Mount Baker Middle School located just south of Seattle.
This will be a two day competition, along the basic lines of Kingdom Arts and Sciences. Just as for the Kingdom A&S Championship, contestants will need to declare their intention to enter well in advance of the competition. THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS JULY CORONATION. If you intend to compete for Bardic Champion you must notify, in writing, the Crown, the A&S Minister, and the Kingdom Bardic Championship Coordinator by July Coronation. "In writing" will include snail mail, e-mail, and physically handing the written letter of intent to the parties in question. My addresses appear below, and the e-mail addresses of the Crown, Royal Highnesses and the A&S Minister can be found at the end of this message.
There will be a "Kingdom Bardic Championship Q&A / Open House" at July Coronation on Saturday from 10:30am to noon in the A&S Pavilion.
