[OUT] Kingdom A&S Event

Calling all Artists and Scientists to the Kingdom A&S Event in 2009, hosted by the Barony of al-Barran on Saturday, April 11, 2009. Since this is holiday weekend for some, Their Royal Majesties wish to make this a day event only. By combining two separate events into one, Kingdom Competition and Queen's Prize, this event makes a wonderful opportunity for all artisans to compete and or display their craft.

While site information remains in process, the Kingdom A&S Officer would like to provide information about this event.

There will be no feast for this event, to allow people travel time

Pre-Registration will be required for both competition and Queen's Prize on Sunday, March 29th by midnight. Rules for Kingdom A & S (subject to change) can be found along with the list of division & categories and pre-registration forms on the Kingdom A & S web page.
