Arts & Sciences Competitions

There will be two competitions this year:

Competition one: open theme - any type of project on any period or SCA subject

Competition two: - anything related to the reign of Kubla Khan or the Golden Horde.

For both competitions, works in progress are fine, normal minimum requirements for docs - a 3x5 card or equivalent with at least the artisan's name, a description of what the item is (If not obvious) and the culture and time period to which it relates (More is always good, of course, especially references). 

No writing or bardic competitions because Lady Dulcibella of the Vault of Valhalla, the writing and bardic competition sponsor, cannot attend Spring Spears this year.

Take I-44 to Exit 161. Turn towards Ft Wood (South). Immediately south of the highway, turn right. Take a quick left through the median and continue towards the Skate Board park. Look for a green and white sign. St Robert Community Center is the big building near the radio tower.
