The Bard of Artemisia competition will also be held. The winner is determined by the Crown, the current Bard, and the new Heirs with no formal "scoring".

Attention merchants: Merchants are welcome to set up tents outside in the grass area. There is no merchant fee. Please bring your own tables and chairs, tables and chairs belonging to the site are not to be brought outside. If there is room indoors, we may be able to have merchants inside. This is not guaranteed and the autocrat staff will make that decision Saturday. If you would like to merchant, please come check in with the autocrat before setting up.

Site fee is $8, non-member fee applies. There will be a Kingdom fundraiser dessert auction. We welcome donations, although there will be limited refrigerator and freezer space for storage. We also will be serving a $5 shire fundraiser lunch on Saturday. Dinner is off site, or you may bring food in.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Let it be known that throughout our glorious lands of Artemisia that a dessert auction will be held as the Kingdon fundraiser at the Arts & Sciences Championship. Artemisia is known for the wonderful foods that are served at the feasts. Now is the time for you to show the Known World what glorious desserts are offered and at the same time, aid the Kingdom coffers. Please let the auction steward know what you are bringing and if your dessert requires refrigeration. In addition, please include a card with the list of ingredients for your dessert.
