Kingdom Twelfth Night and Yule are over and now you can put all seriousness aside and join us for the silliness of a court held by the King of Fools and the wonders of a "backward feast". Foolishness you say? But of course!
Welcome to Fool's Twelfth Night. Fun and Merriment abound at our festivities. Enter into a realm where the garb is motley (sometimes painfully so), the games and gambling are for fun and prizes, the most foolish soul sits on the throne and dessert, of course is served first (life being short and uncertain) All those attending will vote for the silliest among our ranks. This lucky Fool then reigns as King or Queen of Fools, silly hat and all. There will be a Gluckhaus game running throughout the day. Whoever ends the day with the most baubles (whether hard earned, conned, or begged) will be declared the winner. Other contests and games of fun and merriment include the most foolish hat contest, best use of motley, best foolish subtlety

Come on down to Tear Sea's Shore for a day of fighting, fun and feasting for the annual Feast of St. Andrew. This will be a lovely little event to celebrate the holiday season and what better way then to spend it with friends.
Martial Activities: For the martially inclined, there will be the traditional Great Weapons and Mass weapons tourney. The marshal tells me a bear pit tourney will follow to make sure everyone has enough fighting for their tastes. A Round Robin tourney will tempt the rapier fighters on this glorious day.

Several months back in the Barony of Bryn Gwlad, we held a regional fighter practice with great success. Fighters from at least 3 regions of Ansteorra attended. We had fantastic fighting all day long, and a great time sharing libations and stories that evening. Well, it's time to do it again!
