Calling all artificers, craftsmen, bards, and artisans, the Barony of Tir Ysgithr, the Gem of Atenveldt, wants you to come and share your amazing works at Boar-onial Arts and Sciences!
Their Excellencies Sim and Magdalen, noble Baron and Baroness of Tir Ysgithr, invite all artisans to display their creations for the populous to gaze upon in awe and wonder. They also seek a new champion! Lady Quillon, our current champion, will be stepping down from her post and as such, a new champion will be sought. Will you rise to the occasion and represent the splendor that is the Gem of Atenveldt? Besides competing for champion, there will also be a novice field! A youth field! Household champion! All recognized categories of Arts & Sciences are available for entry.
Pre-registration is requested for entry, but not required. All entries must be registered prior to opening court the day of the event. The Office of Arts & Sciences has pre-registration materials and rules available upon request. Further rules can be found in the Tusker Times March Edition at http://www.btysca.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Tusker.March.2015.pdf
Judges are always desired! Seek out Lady Quillon or the Office of Arts & Sciences if you are interested in judging!
There will also be games, such as that delightful escapade known as Bells and Pillows, bardic performances, children’s activities, delicious grilled food by THL Fergus (for donation), and, as always with this barony, fellowship and friendship will abound. Site will open at 9am. Morning Court 10am, with Closing Court at 4pm. Immediately following Boar-onial Arts & Sciences, ( 6pm ) Their Excellencies invite all to join them at A Midsummer Night’s Revel! A delightful evening is planned in the spirit of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Come in your best Greek garb! Come in your best Fairy garb! Come and revel in the soothing night of summer! Scrumptious finger foods will be plentiful, as will Greek mischief. The Fairy Court of Noble Oberon and Wise Titania will meet to hear any grievance and rule upon the terms of trial by champion combat! The merry and mischievous Puck will also be present to liven the gala with his particular brand of shenanigans. Music, song, food, drink, laughter, and merriment will be plentiful this night!
