site is ADA accessible (except for the lawn).

to enjoy the company of friends old and new, work on an
indoor project, enjoy the bardic and A&S displays.

A&S tourney format per our current defender, Lisette de
la Rose:

 

Single Entry, Persona Based – “Something Your Persona Would
Use.” This could involve the creation of an item, whether it
be clothing, accessories, foods, household items,
performance, armor, weaponry, etc. If you do not have a
persona yet, but there is an era or culture that interests
you, make something from that era or culture.

Research papers: Please indicate how the topic would have
pertained to your persona or to someone living in that
era/place. Please limit entries to 8-10 pages of text (12 pt
font, double-spaced recomended) Please be courteous to your
judges and have your paper emailed to areshawna@yahoo.com at
least one week before the competition. This will allow me to
get the papers to the judgres with time to read and review
them. Reading and thoughtfully critiquing a paper the day of
the competition is almost impossible so please be aware that
we will not be accepting research papers at the event. Thank
you for your consideration.

In addition to the defendership there with be an artisan
display with a populous choice prize. If there are youth
interested in participating there will also be a youth
category.

Please let the event steward know if there are any questions
or concerns and especially if any additional considerations
(performance space, tables,etc) are needed.
