The Thirty-fifth Year

Bardic Feast -- Principality of the Mists

September 16, 2000 (AS XXXV)

Camp Herms,
El Cerrito, CA

From The Page (September, 2000):

In the hills above the Bay on a warm September day
Come view the Bardic Lists where we choose the Bard of Mists.
To ward us from the damp, we'll do it at BSA Herms camp.
Duquessa Juana cooks the food, so you know it will be good.
The competition starts at 1 and runs until we're done
We will play and dance—if we have the chance
The gates will gape at 10, and close at 10 PM
10's the site donation as well, if you'd pay it that'd be swell
The morning time we may bless by playing a round of live chess,
The form for four rounds is known, Bard's Choice from the Mist grown.
What Mist becomes when big and strong? Put Water in your song!

The Mists Bardic Feast will be held Saturday, September 16th, at BSA Camp Herms in El Cerrito (site of the previous feast). The site will open at 10am and close at 10pm.
