UMA XXV - AUTUMN DANCE & NORTHERN LIGHTS BARD

A warm and hearty welcome to...

Date: 26-28th of October, 2018

Plats: Brattby village hall, Umeå
[Umeå-brattby 70, Umeå, which is located outside of Umeå city]

Transport: If travelling from far away, Umeå is best accessed by train to Umeå C trainstation, or by plane to Umeå airport.

The bus line 15, or 31 passes by the bus stop, Brattyby 2 E12, that is very close to the event site. You just need to walk a bit downwards, away from the road. And then the village hall (bygdegård) is on your left.

Those travelling by car or other, can find a map here! Map with trafikflöde ie traffic flow for bus, tabussen.nu you can find bus schedule info. Remember to tick "Regionalt i Västerbotten" [Regional in Västerbotten] as option at the top of the page before you do a query.

If you need help with transport from/to Umeå C trainstation or Umeå airport, please tick that option in the signup. Don't forget to notify us later, preferably at least a day beforehand, what time and day you will arrive.

Lodging: crash space on floors in the building (there is usually a quiet sleeping area, and one for those going to bed a bit later), or in tent (camping is allowed outside, if you want to bring a tent). Don't forget to bring mattresses, pillows, blankets, bed linen etc. Toilets and shower are available onsite. The site has a max capacity of 60 people.

NB: due to severe allergies, garlic and perfume-free event!
(if you bring own food/snacks, absolutely no garlic in them,
and perfume includes spray, deo etc)


Food & drink: Evening snack Friday evening, breakfast, lunch, afternoon fika and banquet Saturday, as well as breakfast Sunday are included in the cost. Alcohol is allowed on site. Don't forget to list allergies or other special dietary requirements when you sign up!

Please remember to add in 'other comments' in the signup form or in another way contact us well in advance, if you have other allergies (especially airborne ones that are not food-related) that it is important that we know about!

Northern Lights Bard: The fourth edition of this competition will take place during the event. The best entertainers and musicians in the North compete to win the honourable title as "Northern Lights Bard".

The competition has four parts.
1) Present a song, poem or story or similar with historical evidence/reference.
2) Present a song, poem or story or similar that you have composed yourself with historical spirit.
3) Present a song, poem or story or similar about the SCA that you have composed.
4) Pull three words from a hat on site and write a new song, poem, story or similar in 15 minutes and present it.

Arts & Sciences Exhbition: Exhibition with arts and crafts made by participants - People's Choice voting will be applied and winners will receive prices.

- Max 2 items per participant, and feel very free to bring slightly different things, regarding materials/technique.
- Documentation, ie the paper where you describe what it is you are putting on display does not need to be very advanced, barely half an A4-page will suffice. Including title/what it is one has done, a few lines about what and why one has done and how one did it, and whether one was mostly inspired or based it on historical finds/references or similar. And don't forget to list your name and if any Shire/Barony & Kingdom.

Do you have questions or need help with documentation? Please send us a mail and we'll try to help you out.

Archery: Whether competition or training will be decided after coordination with the Archery Marshal, after taking into account the weather and total number of participants.

Schedule: Site opens on 18:00 Friday, and closes at 13:00 on Sunday.
Preliminary planning includes, 1-2 dance workshops, Northern Lights Bardic Competition either starting around lunch or at the banquet, depending on number of bards signing up, and a ball between the two banquet servings.
