A&S Competitions for OctoberFeast:
Oktoberfest is a time of eating and making merry. In keeping with this theme we will have:

A Subtlety contest - a subtlety is a food illusion - food worked to look like something else, an edible design or decoration. This will be populace choice. No documentation required but highly encouraged. Non- period foods, such as rice crispy treats, may be used, but use of period foods is highly encouraged.

OctoberFeast A&S Championship Tournament:  Entrants will be required to provide documentation and will be asked to stay with their piece during judging. As a favor to your A&S minister, please drop me a note and let me know generally what you are entering so I can have someone on hand who knows enough about your subject matter to judge it properly. You may enter referenced research papers.

There will also be 2 categories of Children's entries:
8 and under: all kids who enter will receive a prize and a chance to show off their skills. No documentation necessary. (No winner be chosen, but all kids will be called up in court.)
9-16: This will be a judged category. There will be a 1 reference minimum and entrant may use Wikipedia (or any other source). We will ask entrants to stay by their piece during judging so that the judges may ask questions. Research papers on period subjects may be entered.

Brewing Contest:

Two Categories:      Wine, Mead and Cordials


There will be a prize for each category.


Please Pre-register  for space. There is no fee. Please provide your own table(s) and protection for the hardwood floor.  Sorry hammering or fire exhibits are not permitted indoors.
