Greetings to Artemisia!
The Shire of Stan Wyrm is hosting 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 and a silent auction 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-and-sciences. 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.
The populace of Stan Wyrm will be holding a silent auction. The proceeds are being donated to assist Castelleon. Any one who wishes to donate an item is welcome to.
Merchants are encouraged to attend; please make arrangements with the Event Steward. Please limit your merchandise to 2 tables or the equivalent, as our indoor space is also needed for the day’s other activities.
