As autumn is nearly upon us and my year of service draws to a close, it
brings me great joy to announce that Mists Bardic will be held at the Santa
Cruz Masonic Lodge on October 22, 2022!
Come and join us as we gather to celebrate the Bardic Arts and witness the
competition to determine the next Bard of the Mists, the best job in the
The competition will be compromised of the traditional five rounds:
- Period Piece
- Piece in a Period Style
- Sitting Bard’s Choice: Inclusiveness and Welcome
- Five Words from a Hat
Please provide brief documentation for the Period Piece and the Piece in a
Period Style. In keeping with recent changes to our Society guidelines, we
welcome styles from bardic traditions from all pre-1601 cultures world-wide.
It is preferred that all pieces presented, with the exception of the Period
Piece, be the competitor's own work. Auditors are welcome.
In the interest of protecting the health of all attendees to the best of our
ability, we have made the hard decision to forego a feast this year.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own food and drink and to
maintain social distancing as possible.
