  Gerald, I fight in Queen's Champion because, as Robin said, the best
fencers are there.  I may have the chance to fight one of the top Dons/Donas
and learn from them.  With the arts, as I see it, I need to better myself
and that is not by competing, but by practicing and watching.  I will learn
from watching and concentrating on the great bards of our Kingdom rather
than worrying what the fifth line of my next piece is.  When I compete, I am
generally too nervous to really watch, learn from, & enjoy the other bards,
so I would rather not compete in Eisteddfod just yet and watch instead.  I
do not really get that nervousness when I fight.

On a separate note, I would like to thank you, Gerald, for sparking this
whole thread.  I believe, no matter the outcome, these conversations will
benefit Ansteorra's bardic scene.
