As one of those who competed, let me add my congratulations to Annes'! Kat, 
you did a wonderful job, and I very much enjoyed your pieces. You have 
truly earned your spot as "Kingdom Bard", and I am proud to have competed 
against you.

Good luck in your coming tenure! Also, a misty-eyed farewell to our 
outgoing Kingdom Bard, Dona Antonia, whom I also have come to admire 
greatly, and who is partially responsible for reigniting the love of 
bardcraft in my heart.
