Every year, Ildhafn selects a Baronial Fencing Champion, by holding a tournament. This year's tournament will be held as part of St Catherine's Faire, on Saturday morning from 10am.
The last Dance Class of 2012 was on Thursday the 22nd of November. Weekly classes will resume on February 14th, 2013, after Canterbury Faire.
From the Steward
Thank you to all who came to St John's - it was wonderful to have the opportunity to see you all again, especially those whose presence has been missed for some time.
Combat was fought, boasts were made, fine food was consumed, and music and A&S held the interest of many.
As announced at St John's, there is to be an Arts and Sciences competition judged at this coming St Catherine's Faire. To enter you must produce a small embroidered item in any style of embroidery that you so choose, entirely constructed between St John's and St Catherine's. The item must be either a gift for another member of the populace, or a contribution to Their Excellencies store of largesse, to be given to a deserving person at a later date.
Due to the number of people who will be at the St John's event this weekend, the usual A&S gathering at William and Catalina's house will be cancelled this week.
We hope to see everyone next week for Christine's ring making workshop!
Fencing classes will resume on October 3rd when Don Emrys begins teaching spanish rapier.
Due to our house being a pit of plague and despair at present, A&S will be moving to Lady Caterine's place this week. Normal service will resume next week.The address is 8a Drome View Place, Beach Haven.
Due to the majority of regular participants being away or otherwise unavailable today, there will be no fencing practice tonight.
