Come join the goode folks of Rivers Bend on "De Nile’. Like Kurdish General Saladin; in 1168 Saladin established his presence in Egypt. We will re-experience Egypt of the time by ‘Horacing’ around with
Bardic and A & S competitions, Subtly, Pied-Piper activities, Egyptian games and fighter workouts weather permitting.
Bardic : competition will be a bi-level event. Experience consisting or people who have been in 7 or more competitions and the novice being people who have competed in 6 or less events. The following areas are open to entrants: vocal, instrumental and story telling. There will be extra points awarded for theme biased entries.
A & S : competition areas will be added when the coordinator determines the subjects and areas. Extra points will be awarded for theme based entries.
Subtly : food entrants will be judged on the adherence to theme and ability to be attractive to the visual pallet.
Academia dei Studiosi will have a full day of class’ scheduled at the event as well. Class fees payable to the Accademia staff, no site fee for class attendance only, donations greatly appreciated however. The list of classes to be announced and added at time of finalization.
Travelers lunch available for $3.00 to all attending. Dinner will be a potluck by mundane last name as follows: A-F: veggies/salads/ side dishes; G-I: meats/main dishes; J-L: soups/stews; M-S: fruits/desserts; T-Z: breads/cheese. Please be kind and adhere to this list and provide enough food for 8 to 10 adults. There is a good list to start with above in the subtly suggestion section for Egyptian foods. Don’t shy away from the Kurdish as well as it is in the theme mode as well.
