      First, I'm pretty sure you'll be in the Barony of Elfsea
      <http://www.elfsea.net>. If you want to make contact with someone
      local before you head to your first meeting, e-mail the Hospitaler.
      One of the primary functions of that office is to welcome and encourage
      newcomers. If you're willing to just head out, you might want to start
      with a Populace meeting. They're general-purpose get-togethers, where
      people who can tell you more about local activities (like Bardic Night)
      should be available. If you're the type who likes to feel "armed with
      information" before going to a meeting, you might want to read one or
      more of the Society and Kingdom introductions for newcomers indexed on
      the main Kingdom site
      <http://www.ansteorra.org/regnum/hospitaler/newcomers.php>.

      I'm aware of fewer resources for new (or incipient) bards. There is a
      Kingdom Bardic Guild, with a website <http://bard.ansteorra.org/>
      promising many future resources and currently offering two PDF files
      you might enjoy perusing--one book of original works by Ansteorran
      bards, and one of songs sung by the populace of one of our baronies.
      You could contact at least a couple of bards through the links there,
      and they might be able to put you in contact with others in your area.


      Good luck, and welcome to the Stellar Kingdom.
