It's time to put down your sword. Bardic Comfort Zone is a bardic get-together designed to encourage you to expand your comfort zone.
If you're an absolute novice, afraid of getting up in front of an audience, this is the place for you. If you're a veteran, here's a chance to try something new - a new instrument, or a new genre. The evenings have plenty of time for singing old favorites and jamming as well.
Each session features a competition or challenge of some sort - because that's a threshhold some people might prefer to cross in good company - but participation will be voluntary, of course.
The evening starts with a potluck supper. A main course will be provided, and attendees are asked to bring beverages and a side dish, bread, or dessert. Special dietary needs? Contact the Not-o-crat (it's not an Event, so we don't have an Autocrat).

Time: 6pm until the fire goes out.

Cost: None. Donations will be welcome.
Dinner: Potluck. Your Host will provide a main dish (chili or a soup of some sort) and assorted beverages (including tea and coffee).
Bring a beverage for yourself and bit to share, and also a dessert, bread or side dish (enough for 6).
Competition / Challenge: We'll start around 8:00. Remember, although the Comfort Crow will be awarded to a champion (decided by populace vote), this is really a challenge to yourself, to get you to stretch your limits. Ensemble entries are allowed. The competition theme is: "It's time to put down your sword".
