Scholar’s Tournament Details – Artisans are invited to enter the Baronial Scholar’s Tournament by completing three tasks: 1. Bring a completed project (of any A&S discipline) for display, 2. Complete a project on the day of the event, and 3. Perform or Demonstrate.
- Bring a completed project – this should be a project that has not been presented in competition, but may be a project that has been displayed at a previous event. It should have been completed in the past year.
- Complete a project on the day of the event – Many of us have projects that languish in the ‘to be completed’ pile, and this is your chance to complete that one project that needs just a bit more work.
- Perform or demonstrate – This task may be combined with item 2 to demonstrate a skill or technique. Alternatively, you may enter the bardic competition (held during feast) with a song, instrumental, poetic recitation or story.
We are pleased to bring back the much-enjoyed silent auction, including mystery boxes, crafted items, and experience packages! If you have items to donate, please let us know. The proceeds from the silent auction will go towards replacing the barony’s communal shelter for war events.
Two categories to win a prize: Non-Period Entries and Period Entries. The competition will take place during the evening’s feast. Please contact Baron Valdr Jarnsmithr, who is coordinating the bardic competition, for any details
