The winner of the Inter-Baronial Bardic Champions Competition on Saturday
night at War of the Wings was Lord Jaume de Monçó, the Performing Arts
Champion of the Barony of Windmasters' Hill!

He performed an impressively smooth period magic trick of "Cups and Balls"
and will share the research documentation of it by request.

He also happened to provide his own "Oktoberfest" brew in his role as
Kingdom Brewer for the evening's "Bards and Brewers Concert" event, and I
personally guarantee that there is no relationship between his delicious
Oktoberfest brew and his successful collection of the most voting beans in
the contest.  ;)

Many very special thanks to Their Excellencies of Windmasters' Hill,
Callixtus and Adriana, for attending the competition in person. They braved
very cold temperatures, biting wind, and allowed others the closer spaces
to our single fire bowl. They made the time to come support all the
Baronial Champions in Performing Arts in the face of personal discomfort
and other warmer temptations, and I thank them most sincerely for their
time, attention, and support.

All seven of the participating Baronial Champions in Performing Arts
deserve massive rounds of applause for their performances not only for
delivering high quality performances, but for doing so in the most
challenging physical circumstances I've seen in 23+ years of SCA
performing. Please keep an eye out at future events for these performers
and mention to these folks that you heard the tale of these brave,
tolerant, and talented performers:
