	The House of dei Bracci invites our friends and
neighbors to join us at our holdings in the Shire of Isenfir
for a day of fun, frolic and gaming to chase away the midwinter
doldrums and brighten the dreary days of February.
	A games tournament will be held throughout the day,
with additional games available for those not wishing to take
part in the tournament.  We have invited the Red Mountain Inn
to bring their games to test your skill and to provide a chance
to improve your fortunes if luck is with you.  Atlantian coin
will be available, but be sure to bring your riches as well.
Gentles are also encouraged to bring games or cards of their

chance to test their steeds at horse races, so be sure to bring
your swiftest mouts.  There will be a prize for the most
gloriously arrayed steed, so be sure to bring their finery as
well as your own.  A few horses will be available for gentles
who arrive without one and would like to race.
	We ask that artisans bring their crafts to display and,
if interested, to enter in an A&S competition for items
relating to gaming (gameboards of any variety, playing pieces,
cards, and the like).

	As evening arrives, the estate kitchens will provide a
simple feast for your enjoyment.  Entertainers are encouraged
to provide diversions throughout the meal and into the
evening.  The remainder of the night will be filled with
dancing to the accompaniment of hired minstrels, much general
merriment and, of course, more gaming.
