Event details
Greeting unto the populace of the Kingdom of the East!

This year, the Il-Khan and the Il-Khatun have chosen The Canton of Lions End to host Ostgardr's Bardic and A&S Championships!

Come one and all to share your gifts of song and prose. 
Display your finest crafts and treats to the delight of all.

**Regarding the A&S Competition:

We challenge our artisans to create and display an art or science that celebrates the spirit of rebirth and renewal.  There are many talented individuals and I know our tables will be overflowing with incredible creations.

The rules are simple:
*Work submitted should somehow incorporate the subject of
rebirth/renewal (come on, we can get creative with this)
*You must be a resident of Ostgardr with paid membership.
*Work should have historical relevance and be documented.
*Submitted work should be completed within the last year.
*Documentation should be at least one page and site sources.
*You can submit different work but all should be documented
individually.  You can choose to submit work as a group or separate.
*MOST IMPORTANTLY:  All Skill Levels Welcome!**

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ENTER THE COMPETITION PLEASE CONTACT Lady Sofya moas@ostgardr.eastkingdom.org NOTE there will also be a display table for those not wanting to compete

Provincial Bardic Championship 2017

The Competition will be open to “as many as will”, and any performer who plays in Ostgardr, regardless of residence, is eligible.

Serving as Provincial Bard is, to a degree, a job with some expectations:

--Attend Provincial events and expect to stand with other Champions on the dais for Provincial Courts.  Attending Pennsic is not required but is helpful.  (There may be Things To Do for Opening Ceremonies or Pennsic Provincial Court)

--Be willing/able to perform (OR to arrange performances with / by others) at courts, feasts, and other functions.  This may include something on the spur of the moment (especially in the event of a delay breaking out).  Encourage the arts of performing in the Province.

--Commemorate the history of the Viceregals and deeds done in Ostgardr in song, story or verse (This is word-fame).

--Along with Their Excellencies, organize and run the competition to choose your successor.

The Competition will consist of two rounds, which provides a chance for competitors to demonstrate a range of skills (“I’m a musician, this is my first story!”), or forms (Period story plus original poem), or moods (Tragical-Comical-Historical-Pastoral).  Competitors will be scored on Prowess, Audience Response, Historical Elements, and Aesthetics.  Simple documentation (something that fits on a 5”x7” index card) is encouraged for extra consideration but not required.
Anyone attending the event and not otherwise occupied, is invited to watch the competition and submit recommendations for a Populace Choice performer.  You are also invited to bring and bestow tokens where you wish.


Our class format will be slightly different this year to allow flexibility for those who wish to observe or participate in the Bardic and A&S competitions: 

Table space will be provided for those who wish to teach, and prospective students can drop in to learn as schedules allow.  Instructors will have signs to indicate when they should return if they step away (please be respectful and do not touch materials without an instructor present).
If there is a particular "formal class" or "demonstration item" it will be announced to the Hall (The Sanctuary, where Bardic takes place, will not receive announcements, due to the nature of that competition)

We currently have tables for:
***Basic Heraldry/Research***
***General information*** (SCA101, Pennsic 101, Basic Garb Construction, etc)***
***Illumination/Calligraphy*** -
ADDITIONAL:  learn Arabic For Scribes: 
***Chainmail*** basics of construction
***Ma Jiang*** the Chinese table top game
***The Fiber Pit*** (activities range from processing cleaned fiber to spinning and several sorts of weaving, knitting, tatting, etc)
***kitchen*** the kitchen is a "teaching kitchen" - feel free to stop in and learn about food prep
All of these will welcome additional instructors

A Silent Auction will be held to raise funds to allow the Canton to purchase loaner equipment and continue with our programs.

If you have anything you would like to donate for the silent auction, please contact Abigaill at groovyfirechick@gmail.com
