Meridies Arts and Sciences
Welcome to the Arts and Sciences home page for the Kingdom of Meridies!
These pages include information that will be helpful to local officers, entrants, and the populace in general. There is some repetition and cross-referencing in order to ease the fact finding process.
Unto the gentles of the faire Kingdom of Meridies come all good greetings from Mistress Dametta of Arundel, Kingdom Minister of the Arts and Sciences.
Now that our Regional Arts & Sciences season is complete, we're preparing for Kingdom Arts &Sciences Faire coming up on Memorial Day weekend, 2016. If you would like to enter the Kingdom Faire, please find the link to register here.
If you pre-register your entry for the faires, you will be given a specific time for your judging and you will be guaranteed face-to-face judging with your judges. Pre-registration also aids me in lining up judges for specific categories of entries in advance, so that we have the most qualified judges possible for your entries. There is absolutely no penalty at all if you pre-register your entry and then find later that you cannot come to the event or that your entry isn't quite finished or ready to enter. The laurels and OVOs of Meridies will also be sponsoring categories in the faire!
Also remember that there will be an Open Faire, which requires minimal or no documentation to enter. The populace of Meridies will choose their favorite entry in the Open. Pre-registration isn't required for the Open; just check in when you bring your entry on site to set up.
We will have the SCA Life category this year, with an overall favorite being chosen by the populace for this category also. If you have an item that you've made but just couldn't quite get the documentation to enter it into a faire or some really cool thing that you've made to spiff up your camp or pavilion, this is your category! Here is the description of the SCA Life category: "Items that, while not documentably period, enhance the overall experience of the SCA. Some examples would be a heraldic cooler cover, tissue paper stained glass windows, or a fighter waterer disguised as a duck; the limit is your imagination."
If you have any questions or need help, email me.
You can find helpful information about entering Regional faires, documentation and judging guidelines here. Thank you to the artisans of Meridies for sharing your knowledge and skills with all of us.
