Arts & Sciences Championship
The Arts & Science Champion for Calafia is chosen at the A&S competition at Calafian Winter Arts.
Do you have what it takes to be the next Bard of Calafia? Bring your best and most polished pieces to Calafia Winter Arts and vie for the honor of being the bardic champion of Baron Gamyl and Baroness Danyel.
With winter upon us I, Elisabeth of Calafia, challenge all of you to bring two pieces designed to please the ears of their excellencies. In one piece present your take on a period winter tradition. In your second piece, bring your best piece to show off your capabilities at being the next Bard of Calafia.
Performances will be judged according to the competitor's technical execution of the piece, effectiveness in connecting to the theme, level of difficulty, and ability to engage the audience.
The competition will take place during the course of the day with the winner announced at closing court.
If you have further questions, please email the current Bard of Calafia. If you wish to compete for Bardic champion, please submit a letter of intent including your society name, and the name and performance times of your pieces before December 1, 2019.
The Equestrian Champion for Calafia is chosen by annual tournament. Riders demonstrate their skill at timed obstacle courses, tilting at quintains and rings, spearing ground targets, and 'beheading' cabbage dummies.
Flagship Championship and Plunder Competition
The Flagship Championship was created by Master Oliver Dogberry, during his time as Baron of Calafia, to encourage research and presentation of period nautical arts & sciences, as well as participation in Baronial events year-round. The Flagship Champion is announced at Potrero War closing court, gets a fancy title, a Baronail Pennant to fly from their mast, and serves as a mini-boss and can set a story arc in the Plunder Competition. To win the Flagship Championship, shipholds place bids of the Salvage Tokens they've earned by participating in the Plunder Competition.
The Plunder Competition is a year-round activity that awards players Salvage Tokens for volunteer service, fighting in tourneys, taking or teaching A&S classes, or participating in many other SCA activities. Players can also win Salvage Tokens by challenging other players, typically at a quick game of skill but any agreeable challenge is fair game. Those looking for the big score can prove their salt by challenging the Flagship of Calafia to a test of nautical skills.
Both the Flagship Championship and the Plunder competition are managed by the Nautical Guild.
