This latter theory works fine at kingdom or principality level, or perhaps
even for the more densely-populated baronies, when there is a wide range of
contestants from which to draw.  For smaller baronies, however, it makes
much more sense to have a single champion selescted through a general A&S
competition (perhaps with each entrant required to submit works in two or
more categories).

Windmaster's Hill, for instance, selected its four current champions
(fighting, fencing, archery, and A&S) in a single competition in which all
entrants were required to enter at least three of five categories: fighting,
fencing, archery, static A&S, and performance A&S.
