There is an Arts and Science Championship. The Previous
Champion has written thus below

Greetings onto the wonderful
populous of Seagirt!  This is your current Arts and
Science Champion, Alezzandra Duffrin speaking!

My “tenure” is
almost up.  Although I didn’t achieve exactly what
I wanted to, I hope my last acts will inspire some to apply
to fill my position behind our Baron and Baroness in the line
of their other Champions.  The Arts and Science
Championship competition will be held in the beginning of
2010 at the “The Ball of masked
.  The format to become
the next Arts And Science Champion is AS follows:

You MUST have:  An
ART (with documentation), a
SCIENCE (with documentation) and a
(Documentation NOT required, but

You will display your projects,
they will be checked by the judges, then you will be called
upon to defend your project, then a decision will be made
between the judges.  If you have ANY questions or
concerns, please feel free to ask, I am here to help you
achieve your goal. 

A word about

Take it from me, your
documentation is most VITAL and should be able speak for
you.  Take your time, research.  Fill in AS MANY
blanks and possibilities as you can.  Simple photocopies
of website pages or books are barely deemed as documentation,
and DO NOT give your work and knowledge justice.  Be
proud of what you created!   You should be able to
at least do 2 pages, with references. 

If you merely wish to submit an
ART or A science for feedback, feel free, as those are also
welcome to see and enjoy!!

Now, you may also be wondering
about SST and what we traditionally do at SST for the Arts
and Sciences.  I am adding a twist.  Instead of the
traditional ‘On Site Favour’, we are doing an
‘On Site FLAVOUR’. 

I wish for you to create a dish
by using the local ON SITE flora and fauna.  I have
created a list of edible plants found at Camp Barnard for you
to help.  Yes, some plants are not period, but create
the dish in a period manner.  If your recipe calls for a
protein, please DO NOT hunt the local WILDLIFE!!!! 
Substitutions for proteins are acceptable!!!  Chicken
can be bunnies!!  Please, also respect the site and do
NOT destroy the forest and land.  Take only what you
need, which should be very small.  All plants are safe
to consume and are pesticide/herbicide free.

If you are interested in
creating the ON SITE FLAVOUR, let me know
and I will give you the list of plants to choose from. 
It give you time to think about what you wish to
create.  Thank you, have fun, create and learn something
new, above all, RESPECT our land!!!!

Alezzandra Duffrin, AOA
