Personally, I will compete in the venue I've won before (obviously not
the very next year).  There have been many returning bards to the Barony
of Namron and I hope to (some day) count myself among them.  The bards
that I've seen compete (for this Title in particular) are spectacular.
The contest usually lasts several hours.  As far as pros and cons
go...well, pros - Keeps the better bards in practice and gives the newer
bards something to learn from...cons - Keeps the better bards in
practice and makes it harder for a newer bard to gain the confidence of
winning a competition.  

Hope this is what you are looking for.

When it comes to local championships, I seldom see bards return to
compete where they've won a championship in the past.  On the other
hand, I often see people return to compete in martial championships that
they have won before.  In most venues, it's common that people don't
compete when they are the outgoing champion, so I'm not addressing that
case here.

I'd like to know people's thoughts on this topic.  Why do you, or don't
you, compete in local championships you have won in the past?  What pros
& cons do you think this practice imparts on the bardic community?
