A friendly reminder that Mistig Waetru will hold its 5th annual Revel by the Lake in the village of Baraga, in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula, September 22-24. Come fight, fence, dance, sing, or just relax under the pines and enjoy the glorious fall foliage!

Triumphe of the Eclipse

description:
To the atrophying affects of time some may wonder what we mean by Triumphe. The Grand Universities at Oxford have recorded for us the following meanings that we are applying. As the day ends, we ask that you join us for the Triumphe of our Champions and our own and hear the honor and glory of those who have championed us in the past as a new Order comes about. In honor of our current Guardian, who will be the last of the Old Order, Mushir Mahdi, many of the festivities, including the feast will have a Moorish flair to them. Location:
Province of Mooneschadowe (Cleveland, Oklahoma)

Luck of the Gypsies

description:
Our event is a celebration of the way of the Romani life. Your goal at this event is to gain as much luck as you can by following the Romani way. Upon your arrival at the event, you will be given a token bag with beads. These beads symbolize good luck, but like all the Romani you must guard your luck carefully. A small group of Romani will be wandering the site. If you commit an act of bad luck, you will be asked to turn over one bead. If you are spotted doing something that will gain you luck, you may be given a bead. So pay attention! Location:
Shire of Deodar (Walker, Iowa)
