Good Mistress and my dear friends,

Your words humble me beyond expression. This was indeed a heavy competition
- SIXTEEN competitors sought to take on the Sable cloak. M'lady Catrin (I am
almost certain I butchered her name), Svan's lovely lady, did take the day.
It was between her and Mistress Adelaide, who performed some amazing pieces
(ask her about her rendition of "Old Used Queen" sometime!) and held her own
against some fierce competition with grace and style. It was an honor to
compete against the likes of HL Antiginous Bearbait (former Premiere Bard),
His Grace Miguel, Mistress Adelaide, HL Tadgh (Bard of the Steppes), Lady
Maggie McPherson and others. This was without a doubt a Bardic of the Ages.
Our kingdom is truly blessed to have bards such as these.

So, it's on Bards! I hope to see many more of Elfsea's amazing bards compete
in next year's Eisteffod (and our own Bardic competition...coming to an
event near you in October!).

It was (and is) truly an honor to represent such an amazing Barony. What a
lucky bard I am!

Ever in service with a song and a smile,
Lady Eleanor Cleavely
Bard of Elfsea
Descendant of the White Oak
Twice Bard of Sun Dragon
Premiere Bard of the Citadel of the Southern Pass
