Pentamere Dirty Dozen Donation Derby
Host: Birke die Jägerin
We will have tables at the event that everyone can set out their
items! I will try to be there by 10 am. It should be quite simple -
everyone sets out their items and places a cup next to them for the
beans (I'll provide simple cups and beans). The populace votes with
beans, like in a bean count, and the Excellencies and Highnesses vote
for their choices.
At 4:30 pm, please be present back at the tables -
we will distribute the prizes, and people can pick up their items to
present them at court to be donated, if they wish. You must be present
at 4:30 to win!
Here's more specific info about the tourney itself:
What: The Dirty Dozen Donation Derby was created in
An Tir as a way to encourage the creation of largesse through friendly
competition, and Pentamere is having one at Twelfth Night 2015!
To Enter: Create 12 items based on a theme, which can
be anything, from 'stuff I made on Monday nights' to '13th Century Germanic
Ladies Accessories.' The primary rule of entries is that the items should
be tagged (your name/group, donating to…) and ready to be given
out as largesse immediately. This is not an A&S competition –
no documentation necessary! Each entrant will decide where they are
donating the largesse (Kingdom, Barony, Shire, etc).
Prizes: 1. Populace Winner: Entries are voted on in
a bean count, and the winner is the entrant with the most beans. The
populace winner gets one item from each of the other competitors!
2. Baron(ess)/Baron(ess) Choice: Each pair will also get to pick a winner.
Those winners get to choose 1 item from 3 other entries.
3. Over the Top Award: For anyone who does 6 solo entries (that’s
72 items!), you will receive a commission from a volunteer prize maker!
Intimidated by the idea of creating 12 of something? Grab 11 other people
and do a group entry! Can't think of something to make? Speak to Royals
or your Baron(ess) about what they’d like for largesse! Check
out the other Dirty Dozen Facebook page for inspiration!
