Annual Estrella War Banana Bread Bakeoff

Barony of Sundragon Baronial Pavilion
The CPQBB (Committee for the Preservation of Quality Banana Bread) will once again host the Annual Estrella War Banana Bread Bakeoff on Thursday evening at the war. This ancient and venerable competition will continue to evolve as we learn from previous years, so please note the details and changes below.
We will continue with the same categories that we had last year including the populous choice, which will give those in attendance and opportunity to sample the breads and determine their favorites. Prizes will be given in the following categories:
- Traditional Banana Breads (with or without nuts)
- Non-traditional Banana Breads (although they must still contain bananas)
- Gluten Free Banana Breads
- Populous Choice
This year we will limit contestants to a single entry in the first two categories. This means that competitors can either enter a traditional or a non-traditional banana bread entry, but not entries in both categories. Competitors may also enter a gluten free banana bread regardless of whether or not they have made an entry in one of the first two categories. All entries in the first three categories will be automatically entered into the Populous Choice category. In addition contestants may also add as many additional entries as they wish to compete in the Populous Choice.If you would like to ensure that you have a place to sit during the competition, please bring a chair with you.
Anyone interested in competing in this time honored competition may deliver their entries to the Sun Dragon Baronial Encampment between 5:00 and 7:30 PM on the day of the competition (Thursday, February 27th).
Rules and Legal Jargonese: All entries must be made by the entrant, but do not need to be made on site. Both breads with and without nuts will be acceptable, as well as breads that do not meet the traditional definition of banana bread provided they do in fact contain bananas and are a bread. Winner will be chosen by a panel of well-qualified judges who have all passed the CPQBB exhaustive pre-judging questionnaire and qualification review. Breads will be judged and prizes awarded in three categories, traditional, non-traditional and gluten free as well as a populous choice. Contrary to popular belief the CPQBB is not just a front set up by Duke Jonathon to aid in the acquisition of Banana Bread there are other people involved as well. Entries will be judged without the judges knowing who produced the entry. Judges will provide their own butter or spread of choice. Duke Jonathon and the CPQBB maintain no responsibility for the remains of entries making it back to the entrant, as it is expected that any crumbs left by the judges will be pilfered by wannabe judges and mooches who unlike His Grace did not come up with this brilliant idea to get his fill of banana bread.
