A Midsummer Night’s Fleece! 

Beauregaard, the Fabulous Golden Fleece of Ramsgaard, has enjoyed his sojourn in Wales with his Guaardian, but, as is his wont, he became bored and ran off from his protector. He was last seen in London, where word has it that he was collaborating with a certain Bard writing scurrilous plays!

We ask all who would vie for the position of Beauregaard’s protector to come to the Shire of Ramsgaard on the weekend of March 15-17 to compete in the multiple challenges required to become Ram’s Guaardian! Write your sonnets and bring your best puns!

Once again we are in the North Thompson Fall Fair Hall, on the south side of the Agriplex grounds, east of Dunn Lake Road. Please use this address in your search engine to ensure you don’t miss the turn:

Arts and Sciences

Arts and Sciences Competition

  • Open to all:
    • In keeping with the great Shakespearean play we bring this opportunity to all who wish to share their Art and/or Sciences and help Beauregaard find his way.
  • Your item can be made in any medium and materials.
  • Theme:
    • Beauregaard takes the place of Puck and stays as a Ram, rather than a donkey and shows his value to Oberon & Titania.

  • Prize: It’s a “sur-prize”!

  • Theme:
    • To benefit our Tir Righ Royals and Their Rainbow Reign.
