EVENT(August 26): Pennsic Pauper's Potluck

Greetings from Ellwood!

     I must apologize to Lady Anne Elizabeth on this one.  We
missed the July _Acorn_ deadline.  Since I am the triple
redundant co-autocrat (don't even ask) and have Internet access,
it had to go out through my account.  Torquil will be sending
flyers to seneschals sometime this week as a redundancy.

     Even grouchy old Ellwood had fun at this event last year,
so come and join us!  The flyer we are sending to the _Acorn_
even as you are reading this should look something like what
is at the end of this message

In Service,
Ellwood, BBC
