The Fiftieth Year

Bardic -- Principality of the Mists

October 24, 2015 (AS L)

Santa Cruz Masonic Lodge,
Santa Cruz, CA

From The Page (October, 2015):

Come one and all for a day of music and poetry, of friendship and feasting. This is the competition to find the next Bard of the Mists, and you are all invited to participate as performers or audience or a bit of both.

The site is discretely wet. Please contact the head cook in the case of special food needs. There will be vegetarian options as well as gluten-free options for all courses served.

The site does not allow open flame.

The competition has five rounds, which are period piece, piece in a period style, bard’s choice, masterwork, and the ever-famous three words from a hat. The bard’s choice (which is the choice of the current bard) is mercy.

We look forward to seeing all of the wonderful entries. If you wish to have a member of the Order of the Golden Branch, the order of former Bards of the Mists, mentor you as you prepare, please contact Rhys Gethin.

Even if you are not competing , feel free to bring a song or poem or performance to share!
