Spring Carnival

Greetings to those of the Merry Rose.

I'd like everyone to spread the word far and wide...it'll be in the next ACORN 
but here's a preview.


Break out your spring best, a carnival has come to town.  The Incipient Shire of
Roxbury Mill (sponsored by The Barony of Lochmere) invites one and all to

                           Spring Carnival

on 22 April at the Laytonsville VFD in Laytonsville, Maryland.  Join us for:  
Palio races, merchants, workshops, dancing, children's activities, fighting 
(armored combat), more fighting  (duello), and an obscure local game called 
cambok.  The festivities will be followed by a scrumptious feast prepared by 
Lady Ciera Lawan and, of course, more dancing.  The site will open at 10 am and 
close at 11pm.  The hall is wet but the grounds outside are not!  No open flames
in the hall.
