Anna - If you wouldn't mind sitting out a class period or two, that would allow me to take or teach a couple of classes. However, I don't want you to miss anything you're interested in.
Everyone - I would also appreciate it if someone could volunteer to arrange for hot drinks for the day, and I'll need volunteers for setup Friday afternoon/evening. I hope to take a trip to the site soon with the autocrat to see the space we'll be allotted and to get details on what facilities are available (such as electricity for coffee pots, etc). Also, since the event is outdoors in November, we may need space heaters. If you could bring one or loan one to us, please let me know. Can't think of anything else right now. Oh, wait...
You! We need you! And all your bardic friends! Don't just come to the collegium - talk it up! Tell everyone about it! I'll be posting classes sometime during the next month, but rest assured, there will be something for everyone - novice bards, experienced performers, everyone!

Hello, Antonia -
I for one am really looking forward to it! You're doing a great job, and your enjoyment really shows.
Regarding the Bardic Collegium, it was suggested that you may need someone to make sure the classes stay on schedule. If you do, I would be happy to fill this role for you. Also, what is next on your preparation list? I could help with booklets or handouts, if you want, or other things of that nature. Just let me know.

During my tenure as kingdom bard, I've come to appreciate the wide variety of performing arts practiced within Ansteorra. From rousing campfire songs to lofty period poetry, from war stories to productions of Shakespeare, we have amazingly diverse interests and remarkably talented people! I would like my successor to be familiar with and supportive of the many facets of the bardic arts. To that end:
Eisteddfod, the competition for Titled Bard of Ansteorra, will take place at Steppes Twelfth Night on January 8, 2005. The rules are as follows. Participants will be required to perform in three initial rounds: (1) campfire piece, (2) period-style piece, and (3) Ansteorran piece. In the first round, the piece should be something you might perform at a campfire no restriction on period or style. In the second round, the piece should be in a period style or written within period; written documentation will be required, and the piece may be original. In the third round, the piece should pertain to Ansteorra in some way, whether it be history, myth, legend, or celebratory in nature. In the first and third rounds, documentation is not required. After the third round, three to five finalists will be selected and each will perform twice more. The winner will be chosen from the finalists and announced in court.&nb!
sp; There is no restriction on repeating styles or requirement that any pieces be original, but diversity is encouraged.
I am enjoying my current position immensely, and when the time comes to turn over the cloak to my successor, I hope to lay it on the shoulders of someone who will love and encourage all aspects of the bardic community. I invite all the bards in the kingdom to consider entering Eisteddfodd. If you are unable to enter but will be at Steppes Twelfth Night, please come participate as an audience member. Further details , such as starting time, will be published closer to Twelfth Night. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your consideration and support I hope to see and hear all of you soon!
