[ANT] Tir Righ A&S and Bardic Championships

Come witness history made as the next Scholar and Skald of Tir Righ are chosen -OR- if you've got a mind to stand a champion of your Principality, come and contend for the honour of being Tir Righ's new Champion of the Arts & Sciences or the Bardic Arts. Either way, come and cheer on those who put their knowledge and skill to the test.

Parameters for the A&S Competition can be found here: http://as.tirrigh.org/championship/
Parameters for the Bardic competition are as follows: 2 (two) pieces presented before a public audience.  Both pieces must be from different genres and/or periods/regions.  For example, a Norse song and a Norse story would be acceptable, as would a Norse song and a 14th Century German song.  Both pieces must have some documentation. *Bonus points will be awarded for audience appreciation.*

BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE...
There will also be a plethora of University of Tir Righ (UTR) A&S/Bardic classes offered as well. A class list will be posted (hopefully) closer to the date as the classes are finalised.

AND THEN... That very evening, stay to celebrate the new Scholar and Skald with a fabulous, not-to-be-missed feast created by HL Kensae (Kenzie) McBeighn (and if previous Kenzie feasts are any indication, this is NOT to be missed!!!). Email HL Kensae for more info and tickets at kensae@shaw.ca.
