I have to agree with Gerald, it was an AMAZING Eisteddfod and the most 
bardic fun I've had since Pennsic.

First, thanks to everyone who came, contributed, and participated either by 
performance or by enjoying and encouraging the performances.  While I humbly 
admit, I don't personally feel a need for a bardic college, I do feel a 
great need to keep this ball rolling.

Ok, Eisteddfod should be the pinnacle of our bardic competition but I think 
we can have just as much fun at other events.  How about it bards?  The good 
folks at Bryn Gwlad have added a bardic competition 
(http://bryn-gwlad.ansteorra.org/Candlemas/).  Who will join me there and 
blow their bardic socks off?

Consider the gauntlet thrown!    ;-)
