Hey, guys --

It's Tiggy.

Finnacan, that's really funny.  :)

[Please note: the following paragraph is to be read with tounge firmly planted in cheek. ;) ]
But anyway -- did somebody say 12th Night?  If I remember correctly, there's been a healthy dose of things bardic going on there the past couple of years.  I'm pretty sure of SOMETHING that happened the past couple years, at least.  (grin)

I like the idea, Finnacan, but Edstedfodd [I doubt I got the spelling right, but all this Welsh is GREEK to me -- um, maybe I mis-spoke. ;) ] seems to have taken up residence at Steppes 12th night the past few years.  I have no idea what Pendarin intends to do with it, but the event is so centrally located, and draws enough people that the competition does well there, I think.  But, I love the idea of exchange immensely.  I just don't want to have to make the choice of watching the competition or hanging w/ the other bards and exchanging stuff.

Just a thought --

(Yes I do have them from time to time)


PS -- Wow, I haven't seen the bard's list THIS hopping in ages.
