Stierbach Picnics

Poster: Denise McMahon <denise@access.digex.net>

(My apologies if you receive this more than once.)

Stierbachís first Picnic of the season is on April 26th!

Circle your calendars and get that armor ready! 

They are still at Briar Patch Park in lovely downtown Sterling, VA. There
is an picnic shelter and grill, however, you are encouraged to bring your
own grills or hibachi's (trust me on this!) and definitely a picnic basket!

There is a playground for children that was just renovated last Spring- lots
of slides and swings! And *plenty* of room to run around on!

We will have fighting and A&S and fighting and dancing and fighting and
archery (with a special emphasis on the Baron's favorite- Combat Archery) and
fighting and sewing and fighting and dancing and Rapier... well, you get my
drift. Oh yes!- and our own brand of Croquet, led by Baroness Kristin. Period
music will keep the afternoon lively while we cheer on our fighters or
distract ourselves with lighter endeavors! Stierbach will provide the lemonade
and a cooler of water to refresh ourselves with- please note that the
Chirurgeon General has warned you about the possible enhancement of your
fertility should you freely imbibe Stierbach water. Those wishing to avoid
these consequences should bring along their own. 

If it rains, the picnic shelter is perfectly wonderful for gathering under and
either dancing or doing various A&S things. *If* it rains, I would definitely pack
sandwiches or a thermos of something warm!

Bring your banners and come and be Medieval on a Sunday afternoon from 1pm to
dark! There is plenty of parking too.

Garb is encouraged- but donít worry about if youíre just starting out and donít
have anything yet- show up, be comfortable and perhaps we can find you something!
