ARTS & SCIENCES AT SEPTEMBER CROWN
Period Encampments Contest
There are some encampments that bring the Middle Ages to life for us, where
you seem to be stepping into the life of the past. We hope to recognise
this at September Crown, with the prize of a banner. Please bring entry
information to the A&S Pavilion before noon on Saturday (earlier is
better). You may enter your own encampment or inform the judges about
Banners and Heraldic Display
The A&S Pavilion will host a display of banners on Saturday, any format
welcome. Banners will be hung from the supports of the pavilion, so if your
banner requires any special support, please bring that as well. Setup is

Pavilion throughout the event. Check at the Pavilion for schedule and

ten.etg@nylmat or 425-880-6209
Do you have a spiffy project that you’ve been working on that you would
like to show to other people? Would you like to perform that piece you’ve
been working on to an appreciative knowledgeable audience? Do you want to
get help with that project that’s got you at an impasse or find ways to
improve it the next time round?
Come show your endeavors in the Arts and Sciences at September Crown on
Sunday. We encourage you to bring works-in-progress or recently completed.
Information on Displaying and Schedule:
I would like to encourage those displaying objects to sign up ahead of time
so we can provide adequate space and let people know what kind of things
will be on display. If you have a table you can bring for your display
please let me know before the event. If it is a large table you may be
asked to share it. If your piece does not fit on a table please let me know
It is also recommended that you sign up for your Bardic Presentation ahead
of time. Make sure that you’ll be onsite by the time setup starts. If you
haven’t checked in by half-an-hour before your performance slot it may be
given away. Individuals will be given 5 minute performance slots, groups
may sign up for two slots if schedule permits. After 2 pm unfilled slots
will be allotted to any performer, preference to those who have not yet
performed. You may perform outside the schedule but do not expect silence
from the other activities.
Both displayers and performers should bring a cover sheet. This is an 8 1/2
x 11 sheet of paper, with a brief description of the piece, including
where, when and in what culture it would have existed, your name, branch
and contact information, along with a photograph of yourself (preferably
showing the piece as well). The cover sheets will be kept by the organiser.
Besides the cover sheet you may bring documentation or handouts about the
work, tools or materials that you used, and business cards (or equivalent)
to share your contact info with interested visitors. You will be given a
chapbook for comments, either general or detailed critiques. Note that if
you choose the critique chapbook you are agreeing to hear specific
criticism of your object or performance. Those giving critiques will
identify themselves and provide contact information. You should bring your
own goblet, snacks and chair.
All times tentative!
Noon-1:00 p.m. Setup at the A&S Pavilion. Please bring your work by 12:30
p.m. along with a cover sheet.
2:30-1:00 p.m. Polaroids taken for those who have not provided photos with
their cover sheets. Please make sure your contact information is noted down.
1:00 p.m. Display open to the populace. Remember to introduce yourself and
ask your visitors to introduce themselves. Take the time to look at others’
work when you are not busy.
1:30-2:00 p.m. Bardic presentations. First session. Bardic presentations
will take place in a separate area near the A&S Pavilion. Performers should
introduce themselves and speak briefly about the piece. Cover sheets are
required for performers. Comment sheets will be available for the
performance as well.
There will be space for Bardic performers to put their paperwork and
performance schedule when not performing – performers are welcome to stay
with this information.
2:30-3:00 p.m. Bardic presentations. Second session (latecomers slotted
in here as schedule permits).
There may be a third session from 3:30-4:00 p.m. if necessary (at the
discretion of the bardic scheduler).

they will be unattended after 4:30

Apprentices Prize Tourney and Display at September Crown
This is an invitation to all artisans in the Kingdom to come and show
your talents. The Apprentices Prize Tourney is a forum for apprentices and
apprentice-for-a day to come an show off what they do and donate items to
the Squires Tourney for prizes. In the past we have had items that range
from articles of clothing, gifts for the fighters inspiration, lunch baskets
of period food and many, many more. This is to showcase the talent in our
Kingdom and recognize our artisans and our fighters.
There are two tables – one is for prizes and one is for display only.
The tables will be set up shortly before the Squires tourney and taken down
immediately following. If you are donating a piece please deliver it at the
beginning of the tourney. If you are putting a piece on display, delivery
is the same time and pick up is immediately following the tourney. A write
up about your piece or documentation is always welcome for this as well.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly at
ac.wahs@nitsirc as I am not on most of these lists. Also forward this
message to as many people as you feel would be interested.
Yours In Service
