My Lords and Ladies! The Barony of Lions Gate invites you to join us for a weekend of learning and dancing at A&S and Days of Dance 2008. This event will include two days of one hour A&S classes and one hour dance classes, the Lions Gate A&S defenders challenge, a parking lot cordoned off for heavies and fencers to play, lunch food for purchase by Yassir, a potluck dinner, and an Saturday evening filled with games, dance, and fun.
Everyone is invited to join us in the great hall. Please bring finished projects for display and ongoing projects to work on as we spend the day teaching and learning.
The Lions Gate Defenders challenge is as follows:
I have spoken to our current A&S Defender, Maeda Mariko, and she has requested our tournament format be:
What I would like the minimum requirements to be is ONE Art entry and ONE Science entry with verbal documentation (15 minutes or so of explaination with some questioning) . Better if visual documentation is provided and even better if it has written documentation.
Bonus points for being on a spring theme (however tenuous).
Judging will be done using the Principality of Tir Righ judging forms:
