Tournament Information

Greetings Glymm Mere, Caladphort, Crows Gate, and to all artists and scholars of An Tir,
Lyceum is coming up on March 9th. This means that it is time to turn our attention to choosing our new A&S and Bardic Champions.
Those entering these Championships please note that there is only one entry required. There will also not be a presentation in front of judges and instead you will have the opportunity to discuss your entry in a more one on one setting.
The goal of a Championship should be to celebrate that discipline and encourage growth. We hope that these changes will encourage more people to enter and share their passions with the Barony.
If you have any questions, we encourage you to reach out to us or our Champions (Paullus Quinctilius Barbatus for A&S and HL Lucrezia De Alanis for Bardic.) We are looking forward to seeing the amazing talent of Glymm Mere, Caladphort, Crows Gate, and our friends and neighbors throughout An Tir showcased at Lyceum this year!
Yours in Service,
Baroness Disa i Birkilundi and Baron Alasdair Mac Roibeirt
10th Baroness and Baron of Glymm Mere
