Welcome the first day of autumn with Dragon’s Mist’s Boar’s Head event.  This year the event will celebrate the Splendor of Dragon’s Mist, as well as hold the A&S and Youth Championships.  To entertain and educate the populace, we will have fascinating and engaging classes, feature assorted marshal activities, play host to some of the best merchants in the area, as well as hold some truly magnificent competitions!  

Competitions:

Arts and Sciences – Participants are required to submit a documented entry and prepare a 20 minute presentation on their entry, to be followed by a 10 minute question and answer session. Our current champion has asked that his successor also be an able teacher, so this year participants are asked to prepare a technique (preferably different from the documented entry) to instruct the judges in. This portion of the competition will last approximately 15 minutes.

Please send questions and letters of intent to Arts and Sciences Champion HL Ignatius Rieger von Wolfratshausen via email: brandonhawes@gmail.com and Baroness Ana at dragonsmist.baroness@antir.org.  Letters must be received by September 1, 2019.

Youth – The current Champions, Moira inghean Eoghain (Senior division) and Qing Fong (Junior division), have agreed to the format, which has been approved by Their Excellencies. Competitors will be given a booklet of activities. Upon completion of each activity, the competitor will receive a stamp in their booklet. The competitor in each division with the most stamps will become the Barony’s next Youth Champions (the tie breaker will be explained below). Each activity is completely voluntary and none are required. However, since the competition is for the most stamps, more activities are encouraged.

Here is the list of activities and their descriptions:

  • Letter of Intent: this can be done before the event and presented to Their Excellencies at opening court. Also, the text of the Letter should be emailed to Baroness Ana at dragonsmist.baroness@antir.org
  • Create a new and unique device: this can be done before the event and with adult assistance, preferably, using the device registration form available on the AnTir Heraldry website. Blazonry is not required, but highly encouraged. (If the child already has a registered device, the entry must be different)
  • Dragon in Any Medium: this is a long standing tradition for Dragon’s Mist. Using any type of materials, create a piece of “art” that represents, in some way, a Dragon. This can be done before the event and should only include adult assistance where safety is a concern. The Dragon in Any Medium will be the only judged activity and will be scored by populace using stones (per tradition). That scoring will be used as a tie breaker in the event that it is needed.
  • Scribal Painting: paint a piece of marginalia that will be provided on site.
  • Play Games: at least one of a variety of games, which may include Senet, the Royal Game of Ur, Hnefetafl, Chess, Checkers, and/or others.
