Greetings Glymm Mere and Caladphort, Lyceum is coming up in April!

This means that it is time to turn our attention to choosing our new A&S and Bardic Champions. We plan to have a similar format to last year. The biggest change is that we will allow entrants to have their discussions in person at Lyceum or via Zoom during the event if they are uncomfortable attending. We will also be requesting a recording of your bardic entry beforehand to make performance without a mask possible.

Those entering these Championships please note that there is only one entry required. There will also not be a presentation in front of judges and instead you will have the opportunity to discuss your entry in a more one on one setting.

The goal of a Championship should be to celebrate that discipline and encourage growth. We hope that these changes will encourage more people to enter and share their passions with the Barony.

If you have any questions, we encourage you to reach out to us or our Champions. We are looking forward to seeing the amazing talent of Glymm Mere, Caladphort and our friends and neighbors throughout An Tir showcased at Lyceum this year!

Please Note that the details for Lyceum have not yet been finalized but are in the works. We just want to be sure to give people enough time to prepare their entries.

Yours in Service, Baroness Disa i Birkilundi and Baron Alasdair Mac Roibeirt 10th Baroness and Baron of Glymm Mere
