Their Majesties Treasure Chest at Coronation

I wanted to bring to your attention the individuals who placed items in the
competition for Their Majesties Treasure Chest at Coronation. Her Majesty was
very pleased with all the entries and I was so proud that so many came
forward with such lovely gifts of incredible variety. If you know any of the
following gentles, please convey my appreciation to them for contributing
their talents to the Kingdom. A very special thank you goes to the Barony of
Hidden Mountain for contributing the prize of 50 coins in the image of Susan
B. Anthony. <g> for Best of Show.

Lady Susanna Grey received the Best of Show with a wonderful gift of numerous
jars of Honey. They were set up in a marvelous display that was not only
pleasing to the eye but provided samples for everyone to enjoy. In addition,
she was very informative on beekeeping and the act of obtaining and bottling
the honey. The process was documented and her steps in producing this were
displayed. Lady Margherita the Weaver provided 3 beautiful sets, 2 each, of
her hand woven towels and received an Honorable Mention from Her Majesty.

In addition, there were wonderful entries by the following gentles (given in
