The Beauteous Baroness Bianca doth invite the Populace of Her Fair Barony, and any others interested and willing, to attend Her Arts and Sciences Competition and Collegium.
The learning and other festivities will take place on the 21st day of October in the city of Ogden. There will be lots of classes, including a fighting class track, and an A&S competition to choose the Baronial Champion. There will also be a fabulous fundraiser lunch. Come have hot and hearty soup prepared with love by the goode cookes in our Barony and contribute to the Baronial Pavilion fund. If you would like to donate a period dish for the lunch AND enter it in the A&S, that is an option but not a requirement for the dish. Donations are greatly appreciated.
The site is the Ogden Weber Community Action Partnership (OWCAP) located at 3159 Grant Avenue in Ogden Utah 84401. Take your best route to I-15 towards Ogden. Be aware, there is construction all along I-15 through the Ogden area. Get off at the 31st Street Exit. Turn onto Grant Avenue. The building is on the West side of the road and parking is limited, so first come, closest to the building.
Besides the classes, there will be a fighting track of classes, a children's track of classes and there is a fenced playground available for the children. We are a very child friendly group so bring the whole family. There will be something for everyone.
Her Excellency's Arts and Sciences Competition is open to everyone, but only a member of the Barony can be Champion. Her Excellency is only requiring a minimum of documentation, a 3x5" card, and is looking forward to many participants. Come prepared to discuss your work. Part of the judging includes a three person interview. You will be speaking with a Peer of the Realm, either Royal or one of the illustrious Orders; a judge who is familiar with your catagories, to review your technical work and authenticity; and a member of the populace to look at your work from a purely asthetic point of view.
