Re: General Questions about Kingdom 12th Night
Poster: Marsha Goodell <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Duke Logan posted an event announcement for the autocrat of Kingdom 12th
Night to this list a couple of weeks back (I'm a little fuzzy on the when).
Here it is again. This should cover most of your questions as to what is
going on and to whom you should send your reservations etc.
As far as do people from Storvik and Ponte Alto plan to go to Kingdom 12th
Night, the answer is... heck, yes! As to how many or who, I couldn't tell
you that other than my lord and I plan to be there as well as a number of
our friends (most of us live in Ponte Alto, some in Storvik, some in
Stierbach, some in Highland Foorde, some in Lochmere, some in Bright Hills,
some in Dun Carraig, some in Roxbury Mill). I would suggest you talk to
people at local meetings in your area and see if you can hitch a ride with
any of them that are going to the event.
-Winifred (who hasn't sent in her reservation yet, but plans to real soon now)
EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT (as previously posted to this list)
Kingdom Twelfth Night
Their August Majesties, Anton and Luned have commanded that a
celebration of Kingdom Twelfth Night take place in their snow-free lands
of the Canton of the Guardians of the Sacred Stone. Come join Them in
celebrating this joyous time of year at a Medieval Street Faire, with
entertainment and amusements galore! Their Majesties have selected
purple and white as the colors of the day.
Competitions include: Royal Bard hosted by Lady Ysolt la Bretonne , the
preliminaries for the Royal Bard competition will begin at 11am. Royal
Armourer hosted by Baron Heinrich Von Kreiner, Period Dress Accessories
(excluding hats and shoes) sponsored by the Kingdom Arts and Science
Officer Baroness Genevieve d'Aquitaine, Feast Table Decorating (Period
is good, but excess is best!) sponsored by Mistress Jessamyn di
Piemonte, and Best Yule Theme Mask at the Ball.
There will be dancing to satisfy the most enthusiastic dancer. A
Carouso Ball will be held in the afternoon in preparation for the masked
ball to be held that evening. There will also be countless children's
activities during the day.
The Order of the Sea Stag will be sponsoring a heavy weapons double
elimination "rose" tournament after lunch. Any weapons form is allowed,
and the winner of each bout will be presented with a rose, which they
may bestow upon the gentle of their choice. The populace is also
invited to participate in the rapier tavern brawl, where "wagering" on
your favorite fighter will be highly encouraged.
The incomparable Baroness Rachel de Johnstone is preparing a savory
feast for 200 and lunch will be provided for a nominal fee. Merchants
and artisans are most welcome.
Site opens 10am and closes at 10pm. Post revel will be in a ballroom at
the Howard Johnson on Woodlawn Road (See information below) where you
can continue the evening's festivities in the company of good friends.
