Hello Friends,
   I am in need of the same answers.  One of our
Cantons is having it's first titled Bardic competion
next month and has asked me to help.  I'm clueless. :)

  I would like to ask you what your most favorite
competition format is.  This will be Glasyn's first
titled competition and I would like it to be fun,
entertaining, and something to build apon.
