Greetings to Artemisia! The Shire of Stan Wyrm will host
the 36th anniversary of the founding of our Shire on
February 9, 2019. This event will include our Shire's annual
Arts and Sciences Competition, and our Queen of Love and Beauty contest.
A fundraiser lunch is also planned. Please join us for these activities!
The Arts and Sciences Competition will follow modified Kingdom
rules. Documentation will be required. Entries are to be set up by 11:30
a.m. In order to compete for Champion, a minimum of 3 entries are
required, representing at least 2 different Grand Categories. For
information on the categories, go to www.artemisia.sca.org/arts-andsciences.
Items may also be put out solely for display; they must be clearly
so marked, and will not be entered in the competition nor judged.
Our Fundraiser Luncheon will be available from 11:00 through 1:30.
Our traditional Queen of Love and Beauty, and her Consort, will be chosen
beginning at 1:00 pm. Heavy and Rapier tourneys will be held in the
afternoon, weather permitting. Merchants are encouraged to attend; please
make arrangements with the Event Steward. Please limit your merchandise
