Hara-roku-i Kikumatsu, the current Arts and Sciences Champion of the Barony Marche of the Debatable Lands, writes:
To all those who live and play in the BMDL, my time as A&S champion is almost over. The new Baron and Baroness will need a new champion to stand behind them in court and to represent them in the seven pearls in late August. Any person or group is encouraged to enter the competion. There are no restrictions on experience level. The site is dry, but an alcoholic entry can be judged prior to the event. You must contact me ahead of time to make arrangements. Documentation isn’t required, but is highly encouraged.
