[OUT] Caerthen A&S Championship

description:
Her Excellency of Caerthe invites one and all to participate in the Arts and Sciences Championship for the Barony of Caerthe. Official entries, displays, judges, observers and moral supporters/cheering sections are encouraged and welcome.

The beautiful campus of the University of Denver provides a fitting gothic-style backdrop for a day of Caerthan Arts and Sciences. Enter the championship competition or come to observe the amazing works and talents of the artisans.

This event will determine the Arts and Sciences Champion for the Barony of Caerthe for the next year.

While all participants are encouraged to enter the competition for Grand Champion or enter items for general judging, there is LOTS of space for displays. Bring your finished projects or works in progress to display or enter. This is a terrific opportunity for feedback and discussion with other artisans and arts admirers. Show people what you are working on! If you are planning to enter the competition, please contact the Autocrat with a general idea of what you are entering, how much space you require and what (if any) special arrangements you might need.

If you intend to enter for Grand Champion please pre-register by March 22nd so that we may be sure to have enough judges to accommodate your entries!
