Hello, all --
Thank you, Stephen, for your suggestion. I like the idea of no more that two TITLED competitions and no winnings. Your observation about only two competitions in two years does seem a bit stringent.
Still, though, for some reason or another I like the two year mark. Though, the actual requirements could be set by the individual(s) running the competition.
Anyone else care to comment on what constitutes a "new bard" for the purposes of this competition?
Much Thanx --
