Greetings one and all! Please join the good people of Gryphon's Lair as the year turns and Twelfth Night celebrations commence. This will be a singularly joyous event as we invest a new Coronet on the thrones of Gryphon's Lair, Sir Math Halfdane, the Fish and the Honorable Lady Daria de Salamanca.
To honor the Premiere Baroness' contribution and support of the Arts and Sciences over the past two years, there will be an Arts and Sciences display and competition. Please bring any and all pieces, in any medium, that you may have completed over the last two years, with or without documentation. Along with various Choice awards, the Baronial Arts and Sciences Champion competition will be taking place in conjunction with this display, though participation in the competition is not a requirement to display your work. The format for the competition will be detailed in future announcements by Lady Bethany of Windemere.
As all Twelfth Night celebrations must, there will be merchants, games including a Hnefatafl tournament and other board games, singing, story telling and, of course, activities for the children. The close of the celebration will include a sumptuous feast created by the talented HL Meraud des Belles Feuilles.
The event will be held Saturday, January 5, 2008, at Union Station 2501 Wall Avenue Ogden, UT 84401. Site will open at 10 am with opening court, including the Investiture, commencing by noon. Site closes at 10 pm following the feast. The site is DRY and will be enforced by other onsite entities. Also, although we would like to set a more period mood for the feast, no candles are permitted.
