Dubhaigeainn Spring Schola and A&S Championship
Russian Exchange Ducks
Champions Lord Eanraig MacEanraig and Lady Galle Amsel will be
stepping down after a long hard winter, choosing new Bardic and
Arts & Sciences Champions.
All are invited and encouraged to participate in these annual competitions that welcome Spring's beauty back into the lands of our Barony.
The Bardic Championship Challenge will be based on the 3 elements of bards: storytelling, poetry, and music/song.
I, Eanraig the Bonesetter, your current Champion, encourage anyone to participate, and wish to have those gentles who accept the Bardic Challenge perform any 2 out of the following 3:
First, an original piece of poetry, in the style of their persona if able, of any SCA member from whom they draw inspiration. (4 min time limit)
Next, a short story: Glory or chivalry of a baronial member at any recent event - you can interview anyone for details starting NOW. (5 min or less).
Last, a song or style of music played, preferred in your persona but any period culture is fine (3-4 min suggested).
Anyone can perform one or two of the above without committing to serve as champion, and the populace will vote on those performers who have entered the competition.
The winner of the day will be the new Baronial champion, and I will sponsor a special gift for the singular best performance of the day, chosen by the Baron and Baroness and their Champions.
