My personal favorite type of competition is a bardic circle, "pass the
candle" format, participants declare their intention at the circle.  But I'm
weird that way.

  My fellow Bards,

  First of all I'd like to invite you all to come to Golden Arrow IX Sept.
26-28 to be hosted by StoneBrdige Keep (Victoria, Texas)

  Also I am seeking 3 Bardic Judges for the competition -- any willing Bards
to take this up please notify me.

  Secondly I'd like to get your thoughts, opinions and insights on  running
Title Bardic Competition.  Here are my thoughts.

  Primary Objective to entertain the masses and have fun.

  Second Objective to get as Many Bards to come and participate, be they
renowned or not so renowned.

  Dilemma: When during an event to hold Bardic.

  If held during the day there's little participation due to other events
going on and the masses don't get to hear.

  If held during feast, hard to judge, and often interruptions.

  If held at night, then Bardic winner not announced during court and there
by given just recognition -- not that any bard seeks recognition (no none of
us are hams)

  What are your thoughts on this?

and stroytelling.

      Dear fellow Bards

      I am a new question. What do you perform in the SCA?
      I have been a story teller for most of my life. When I was ten I set
      a story telling booth next to my girl friend's lemonade booth and made
      much money as she did. When I started in the SCA I wasn't a performer.
      was an organizer and an autocrat. I didn't really start to build my
      persona until I was in Ansteorra. When I started to work on my
      persona I realized that entertainment is part of the role of a person
      the middle ages. Everybody did something. The gentle born were suppose
      to do more. People entertained themselves and it would of gotten
      boring if everybody didn't perform . Who was that Saxon cleric who
      to God to help him out because when the horn was passed to him he
      not think of anything? As I advanced in the SCA I beca! me a patron of
      bardic arts. In history you will find many nobles who did things like
      that, Robert of Normandy and Richard the Lionhearted. They usually
      participated in the art form. So my performance are part of my living
