Poster: luther@agent.infodata.com (Luther, Alaric)

NOTE: New and Improved Directions!

Stierbach Baronial Elevation and Investiture- February 21, 1998 

Stierbach proudly invites you to join us in celebrating our Elevation
to Barony and the Investiture of our first Baron and Baroness! Don
your finest and join us in a day of revelry, fighting, dancing and
memorable feasting. We will have heavy weapons fighting led by His
Majesty Logan even if it snows, or so He has said! 

The theme for the A&S competition is "everyday tools".  That means
that the entries can range anywhere from a paintbrush to an anvil.
Bring your spinning wheels, pin cushion looms, lace bobbins, cups,
period utensils, and especially armor that *our* fighters use day in
and day out. The categories are divided into what the tools are made
of.  The categories are: Metal, Wood, Glass/Ceramics, Compound (if a
tool is made with more then one material, ex: paintbrushes), Paper,
Armour/Weaponry and fiber (anything knitted, crocheted, woven).
Registration will begin 12:00 noon and will be open until 3:00PM.
Judging will take place approximately around 3:30PM. We will also have
Heraldic cookie decorating for the delight and amusement of the
populace.  The cookies can be displayed until the A&S tables are
cleared, then the cookies may be picked up by their rightful
devourers.  If anyone has an interest in judging or volunteering time
to staff the A&S table or the cookie decorating table, please contact
Deirdre (Holli Shan) at: hshan@erols.com or via phone at (703)
406-4963 <NLT 11:00PM>. 

Baroness Keilyn Fitzwarin and a team of cooks from 3 different
kingdoms will be preparing a feast for only 125 gentles. There is a
limited number of offboard places available in the hall as well. You
may reserve tables of 8 so that your group may sit together, but
please do so early! Dietary concerns should be addressed directly to
Baroness Keilyn at bmorris@access.digex.net or (301)474-6718 NLT 11pm.

The on-board cost is $14.00 per person. Offboard is $8.00. Children
under 12 are half-price and children under 5 are our guests. Please
make checks payable to the Shire of Stierbach/SCA, Inc. Any
reservations not claimed by 3pm will be sold. 

After the feast, one of the Knowne World's most accomplished Dancing
Masters, James of Rutland, has consented to lead us in an evening of
period dance. 

Lunch will be available of stew, bread and hot cider for a minuscule
fee. Hot and cold cider will also be available throughout the day for
everyone. Children's Activities will be led by our new Children's
Chatelaine, Jenet Fairhugh.
