The theme for the Bardic Competition at the Shannon River Raid this coming 
weekend will be:  Honoring Our Ancestors.

The competition will be in three rounds.  

All competitors will compete in the first two rounds, and each of these rounds 
must be in a different style (bard's choice).
That is, the first piece may be a song, poem, story, or instrumental, and the 
second a different style from the first.
At least one piece should reflect the theme.
Verbal statements as to each piece being either Period or in a Period style are 
not required, but will lend extra consideration in judging.
The judges will determine who should go on to compete in the third round.

The third round may be in any style.  
Again, extra consideration will be given to Period or Period-style pieces, and 
to pieces reflecting the competition's theme.

The competition time and location on site will be announced at Morning Court on
