Grand TUA / A&S Championship

hosted by the Barony of Myrgan Wood (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), in the Kingdom of Avacal, and the Museum of Antiquities at the University of Saskatchewan.

Calling all those learning, and learned, to gather in competition, and to share knowledge and expertise. Their Majesties Fergus and Kora have decreed that a new Champion of the Arts and Sciences is to be selected! Their Excellencies Raoul and Roxanne have decreed that a masked ball is required to celebrate! Her Excellency Una, Chancellor of The University of Avacal urges all to share and learn all you can! An array of instructors from Avacal and surrounding kingdoms have committed to classes - there will be something for everyone!

With many thanks to the Museum of Antiquities, we have access to facilities and instructors from the University of Saskatchewan as well. Detailed maps to find your way will be provided on paper and online.

The Museum has agreed to open their doors to us on both days! This will include guided tours of their collection of coins, pottery, and glass from the ancient worlds as well as workshops on said coins as well as pottery.

Instructors visiting from Northsheild, West, Artemisia, and Atenveldt are confirmed!!! Many from Avacal are also confirmed - and we have invited several professors to share their research with us.

We have blocked rooms at the University residences right on campus and at the Park Town Hotel on the nearby riverbank although there are many other options available.

Please note that parking on campus is not free, for the most part. Lots of information and details to follow

Merchants are welcome and encouraged - no merchants fee
