Arts & Sciences:St. Paddy’s In July A&S: Hiberno Vs. Norse It is the late 8th Century on the shore of Ireland. Raiders from Scandinavia have been plaguing the coastline for several years now and have set their sights on one particular town. Lines are drawn and teams picked, as we fight out a Viking incursion here in Ponte Alto! Upon registration or arrival to the event, attendees will be asked to pick a side: Irish or Norse. For the day, each participant’s A&S contributions, bardic performances, or martial accolades will be counted and tallied for their team to see which side will be victorious! A&S: Both displays and competitions will be available. When dropping off your A&S or submitting online, please indicate which team you are participating with (Irish or Norse), and whether you would like to be considered for prizes or just display for the day. Each display will still count as a point towards your team’s success at the end of the day. Documentation is required but can be limited to an EZ Doc or documentation recipe card (both will be available the day of). Prizes will be given for best in each category, Irish or Norse, as well as best in show. The winner of best in show will earn an extra point for their team. For those that wish to make use of it, there will be an online submission form available ahead of time! Bardic: There will be a bardic circle! Come perform your best limerick or Norse poem and by popular vote we will declare a victor. Each participant will also earn a point for their team.
