I am most pleased to announce that the new Bard of Elfsea
is Morgiana Alhazared, of the Canton of Gate's Edge. Her
performance was an impressive extemoraneous song, on
topics given to her by the audience. She defeated a
large field of competitors, including some very
experienced and talented folks. The judges agreed that
what she did, we couldn't have done.
Morgiana received some nice jewelry as a keeper price,
plus she'll be hanging the Elfsea bardic banner outside
her pavillion for the next year, and wearing the collar
of the Bard of Elfsea previously worn by Robert
FitzMorgan and Gurin Koko Nidu.
Now, I'd said there's be a Very Special Prize for the
Bard of Elfsea, and I want to tell those of you who
missed my court Sunday morning what that was.
1. The barony feels that our bard should not only
entertain our Baron & Baroness and our populace, but also
spread the news about the wonders of Elfsea, where Life
2. One of our members, Lord Tarkus Pengryph, a most
noble and generous patron of bards, mundanely works for
American Airlines, and receives as a benefit airline
tickets. This is a transferable benefit.
3. Tarkus has donated roundtrip airline tickets for 2,
to anywhere in the continental US, to the Barony to be
given as prizes. These tickets must be used during the
calendar year 2000. Tarkus' wish is that word of Elfsea
and Ansteorra may be spread to places that Ansteorrans
don't usually go.
4. The Barony of Elfsea is sending its new Bard,
Morgiana, to Trimaris Coronation in the fall, so that
their next war King and Queen may hear of the wonder of
Elfsea, where Life is Good, before undertaking to go to
War against us.
5. Another pair of roundtrip tickets, to be used during
the year 2001, will be awarded to someone at Elfsea
Defender in the fall. It will probably go to one of the
Defenders, but we haven't decided which, yet.
6. Life IS Good in Elfsea. Spread the word.
I'd like to thank all the many competitors who endured
the chill night to participate for this title, and also
my fellow judges, Lord Gurin and Lady Simone.
