Oyez, Oyez!

To all upon whom this missive falls, be it known that the Bardic Olympiad 
has been cancelled, but the party will go on!  The bardic competitions to
be held that day will instead be held at Winter Solstice.  There will be
competitions throughout the day, with categories including:
Period song
Self-composed song
Period instrumental
Self-composed instrumental
Period poetry
Self-composed poetry
Period ensemble
Silly Performance (any medium)
Performance (any medium) composed by an SCA author other than
Self-composed Performance (any medium) on a theme to be chosen that
Judging will be done by the other competitors in the competition, with
final decision making powers in my control.  Verbal documentation is
neccesary.  Written documentation is welcome, but not required.
	The Gold, Silver, and Bronze medal winners for the olympiad will
be the competitors with the three highest scores at the end of the day.
Performers wishing to also compete for the Atlantian Royal Bard
preliminaries must state so before the competition begins.  The top three
competitors for Roayl bard wil go on to compete in the Finals at Kingdom 
12th Night.
	Please direct any questions to myself, Eogan Og, c/o Matt

to have a full day of fun, entertainment, and bardic mayhem!
