I'm not sure I understand. By "spotlight event", I assume that you  
mean Eisteddfod. Or maybe "spotlight events" could mean all of the  
baronial bardic championships, or might even mean bardic circles  
("fire walking"), since that's really where the spotlight is, I think  
-- at least, as far as the bards are concerned. Which of those did  
you mean?

And what do you mean by "bringing it into the A&S venues"? Do you  
mean entering bardic pieces in A&S competitions? Hosting Eisteddfod  
at a major A&S event (e.g. Kingdom A&S)? Something else?

And finally, what do you mean by "make... legitimate"? In what way  
would the above "legitimize" bardcraft, in your opinion? In what way  
is it currently less "legitimate" (either in fact, or in perception)?  
(Not trying to set up an ambush, asking loaded questions... just  
literal ones, seeking to understand your suggestion.)

I'm confused... :-P
