The Eighth Year

Bardic Revel, Canton of Entice -- Barony of Madrone
December 1, 1973

From The Page (February, 1974):

A Bardic Revel was held in the Canton of Entice on 1 December. Despite its distance from the centre of population and the cleverly-hidden locality (designed, not doubt, to avoid discovery by marauding barbarians), the revel was well-attended. The poetic and musical talents of the Principality were represented, including a poetic solution to ye energy crisis by Dierdre Muldomhnaigh (keep warm by drinking ale) and the Ordure of Motley's satire on Bardic Circles, which effectively discourated further original poetic efforts for the evening, though they swear such was not their intent. When the planned entertainment was ended, festivities continued, with the populace engaging in the national sports of An Tir, for which all members of the Principality demonstrate talent and enterprise.

From the History (by Wilhelm):

Held in Eimonds, WA. Lady Allison autocratted.
