The Shire of Rokeclif is calling all bards, scalds, jongleurs, troubadours, poets, lutenists, choristers, tootlers, and patrons to a day of performance arts. Saturday, March 24, 2012 is the date.
The fabulous Days Hotel and Conference Center on French Island in LaCrosse, Wisconsin is the location.King Gambrinus Please mention that you’re coming to Bardic Madness when you make your room reservation.
Plans are being made for a full day of bardic challenges and a night of on-site revelry. Yes, we’ll sing till the cows come home. Classes? We have lots of room for classes on any bardic subject. Please contact Mistress Eithni if you’d like to teach.The schedule is pretty typical for Bardic Madness. If you haven’t been to a Bardic Madness, the schedule page has a bit of an explanation of some of our esoteric vocabulary.
A catered feast is being arranged, and, though there are many places where one might acquire lunch, the autocrats recommend Heroes — the on-site bar where the bouncer is no less than King Gambrinus himself!
As plans develop, so will these pages. Please bear with us. (In other words, “Bear bones.”) Everything on the website can be found with the drop-down fly-out menus above, but if you hate them as much as I do you can click on the linked text.
