      The year grows old, the year grows cold.  Join us as we gather to celebrate the year gone by with games, feasting, dancing, and time to relax with friends.  There will also be a heraldic consultation table in the afternoon. 

      Once again Concordia will host a bardic competition to choose their next Bardic Champion.  There will be 3 rounds:

      A piece about the struggle to be gentle.
      Showcase your persona’s favorite rhetorical device.
      A piece with coded speech in it - doublespeak, riddled speech, even code switching is viable.

      -Instrumentalists may swap out a purely instrumental piece for any of the prompts.

      This year the silent auction will benefit the Royal Travel Fund.  Bring your SCA-themed items you wish to donate on the morning of the event.  See Lady Judith on the day of the event if you have questions.

      As part of this traditional Celtic event, please join us immediately after Court for the hand-fasting of Baron Ernst and Mistress Brid.
