     As Her Grace, Willow has so correctly stated, Bardic Circles don't just
happen, someone has to make them happen.  What is needed for a good Bardic

1.  Good Bards.  You can make do with OK Bards, but too many BAD Bards can
ruin a Circle.  It also helps if the Bards actually STAY at the event.  If
everyone is staying off site chances are poor for a decent Circle.

2.  A Place to have it.  Something with a good ambiance is nice but a good
group can make do with any reasonably quiet location.   Anyplace near the
drumming is not good.

3.  Time in the Schedule, preferably Time AFTER the schedule.  If Court and
Feast run till after 11:00 there probably won't be much in the way of

4.  Someone to arrange for the above and make it happen.  This can be done
formally or it can just be someone hunting up the bards and saying, "Let's
go over here and make a circle".

    Having someone run the circle can be helpful sometimes but a group of
experienced Bards can often just 'wing it'.

of a day."     John A. Wheeler
