More information will be provided as it becomes available.

Until then, there is a Facebook page, if you're interested: West Kingdom's Arts and Sciences Tournament

Autocrat: Francisco de Salamanca

Good people of the West!  It is time for the classrooms of the West to open their doors, time for the Guilds of the West to gather and teach their trades, and for artisans to present their works of art to compete in their journey to claim the Golden Poppy.
The field will be set up in the style of the Towne Faire (intersecting roads instead of a list field).  In order to do that properly, the autocrat staff will need the dimensions of your pavilion if you would like it on one of the roads.  Send pavilion dimensions to Francisco. Please make sure to include the footprint and the additional space needed for ropes. 
If you would like to teach a class, or run a demo please contact the autocrats:  Margaret Graham or Francisco.  Questions regarding the A&S competition can be directed to the Kingdom A&S officer: Aine inghean Tuathail ui Ghallchobhair.
Class descriptions and schedules will be available online at with links on the event page.
