A Feast for Charlemagne

Hail and welcome to all! A celebration in honor of Charles Augustus, Holy Emperor of Rome, is to be held by the Barony of Lochmere. Cast off Winter's cold shroud and come revel in the warmth of our company and hall!

Arts and Sciences:
Artisans, craftspeople, scientists and teachers, pray attend. Charlemagne was not only a great King, but was also an avid supporter of the arts, sciences and education of all kinds. To celebrate this, the Barony of Lochmere bids one and all to come and display, teach and learn. Bring your crafts, your arts, your projects, papers and discourses to share with us all.

We have asked a panel of experienced personages, adept at diverse arts and sciences, to make themselves available for consultation. This is an opportunity for you to gain insights or guidance on what you're doing, whether it is your skills, your research or a class you may wish to teach. Please feel free to discuss your work with our roving panel of experts. The subject matter is not confined only to the period of Charlemagne, 742-814, but in order to accommodate as many participants as possible, displays may come from any time period or culture that falls within the time period of the Society (pre-1600).

Separate from this will also be a competition for the next Arts and Sciences Champion for their Excellencies Lochmere. The subject matter for this is... anything (see above)! Your work will be judged on your skills, knowledge, depth and quality of research, and quality of the end product. Competitors should be able to demonstrate the educational aspects of their work as well. The judges will be their Excellencies, Vladimir and Mebdh.

Competitors may enter anything they are also showing in the Arts and Sciences display, but those who wish to exhibt in the display only are not obligated to compete.
