A suggestion; I just posted the following on the hou-announce list (an email
list that covers a few SCA-specific mailing lists in and around Stargate).

It's come to my attention that not everyone knows about the Kingdom bardic
website or the kingdom bardic email list.

The kingdom bardic web site can be viewed at http://bard.ansteorra.org.  It
is currently under the stewardship of His Lordship Alden Drake.  Drop by
sometime, if you're so inclined.

I mention this as a way of penitence, for not having shared this before.
I'll start posting this every quarter or so.  You have been warned!

May I suggest that, if you have a local list that you read, post this on the
list, for those who might be interested in bardic but don't know of the

In service to the dream with a song in my heart, I am,

Hey everybody,
Some folks have started sending me stuff to upload onto the website.  Kudos!
That's exactly what we need!

This is some of what I would like to begin collecting:

* a list of every branch's past and current titled bards[1];
* class notes written by bards for classes they've taught
* event announcements for events where bardic things are scheduled
* bard profiles (with and without original bardic works) with photos[2]
* good resource links
* a photo gallery[3]
* news of bardic awards given by the Crown

I was also thinking about adding a bulletin board for people to post
announcements and such directly.  The email list can get a bit cumbersome to
sift through sometimes.  I need to look into it some  more.

[1] please don't email me with, "I was the Bard of Blah from 2000-2001."  If
you are interested and can, try to research all the bards of that branch
before and after you and send me the *LIST*, in order if you can, with dates
would be nice, but as close to complete as you can get it.

[2] some bards haven't sent in profiles and photos because they see the ones
on the website all have original compositions attached to them.  You don't
have to write original stuff to be included there.  Just send a photo, a
little bio/blurb and an email address.  This is to help give people a face
to a name on a roster.  

[3] if you send me photos, be sure to send me permission to put the photo on
the website, and email addresses of everyone else in the photo, so I can get
their permission to publish their image.
