Come to beautiful Camp Grandview, long a part of the history of Meridies and now boasting an air-conditioned main hall, to witness a new era in Kingdom Arts and Sciences. This marks the Kingdom-level debut of the new A&S system introduced at MidWinter A&S, with two separate competitions.
There will be an Arts and Sciences Tournament to name the Kingdom A&S Champion, judged similarly to previous Kingdom A&S competitions but using the new judging guidelines. In addition, there is the Kingdom of Meridies Populace Choice A&S Faire. The latter is an entirely new option for Kingdom A&S, with greatly reduced documentation requirements and an easy-to-use optional guided documentation form to make entering your project or activity as easy as possible. Please see the Kingdom A&S web site for more details on both competitions.
Please note that all entries for the A&S Tournament must be pre-registered with the Kingdom A&S Office, and all writing entries must be submitted by May 5th. Pre-registration for the Faire is encouraged but not required.
Other activities will include heavy fighting, rapier fighting, youth activities, and a spectacular, period, and wonderfully delicious feast prepared by the Honorable Lady Muirghein inghean Rioghain. Once your palate has been sated, please join us in song, dance, and celebration.
While there are no cabins available, there is plentiful space for tenting at no additional charge. There are also many fine hotels convenient to the site.
