Bryn Gwlad A&S Champion competition will be a new format this year


Growth in the Face of Adversity:

  1. Artisans may bring any piece they wish to display that is at least their second attempt at the art form and for which they have had complete failures in the past.
    1. Documentation is welcome but we do not require the rigor of responding to a Kingdom A&S judging form.
  2. Share how you handle adversity and failure.
    1. Do you have a ritual you use, do you put your projects in a corner and tell them they have a “time out”, have you burned a piece in effigy? Share with us how you get back on the proverbial horse.
    2. Do you still have those failures? Don’t be afraid to share them too.

Method for determining Champion is TBD

Contact Master Martin Malone: josh@liveoak.ws  if you have any questions

Greetings to One and ALL!
As your current Baronial Bard (2019) and now that Candelmas will be fast upon us, it is more than time for me to pass the mantle forward. It is thus that I will issue this challenge to any and all who would seek to represent Their Excellencies of Bryn Gwlad and take up the mantle of being Their Bardic Champion.
To Wit: From our earliest days we have created songs, told stories and written poems. Are you up to the challenge: Are you an Entertainer? Can you make us laugh, shed tears or Remember? Are you ready to represent The Baron & Baroness of Bryn Gwlad at their beck & call? And the Barony as a whole? As the seasons have been changing, so it will be for those who would represent Bryn Gwlad!
Your Challenge:
To present the songs, stories and poems of our earliest days from the minds, mouths and hearts of our own who were of that time. They are legion!
The “rules” are as follows:
1. The time frame runs from Ansteorra’s principality days under Atenveldt to our first 25 years as a Kingdom (1977-2004).
2. The performances should be: “Old Traditional” in the manner that things were done then: Song, Story & Prose, be they SCA filk or other forms popular during the time.
3. Length of performance: 1-5 minutes.
Be prepared for 3 rounds- 1 piece in each different style + 1 extra, should there be a tie. No written documentation is required, but Oral documentation will be greatly appreciated!
Bon Chance, mes Amies!

The Baron & Baroness of Bryn Gwlad, the people of Bryn Gwlad and from over the Kingdom are waiting to hear you! If you have further questions, please PM me (on facebook), Patricia Schmidt (M. Jalali of Salamis)
