I don't agree with you on this. The College hasn't existed in any but a
theoretical sense in years. Yet we still have a Kingdom Bard. The College
in no way controls the Kingdom Bard or the competition for choosing the
The College if we form one has no business telling the Kingdom how to
choose it's bard nor telling the Kingdom Bard how to fill their position.
We have neither the authority or the right to assign dities to the Kingdom
If the Crown were to designate the College of Bards as the official
orginization for setting policy for Esiteddfod that would be a different
matter. As things currently stand the Kingdom Bard belongs to the Kingdom,
not the College of Bards.
