Winter is upon us, cold winds blow from the north, the sea is grey, the forests are bare, and the creatures of the wild sleep in their burrows. Gentles huddle in their homes and dream of warmer times.
It is in this darkest of seasons that warmth and friendship are most needed.
To lighten your hearts and fill your bellies the Barony of Carillion is once again proud to present our annual Baronial gathering known as Bellringers.
Activities planned include the Baronial Arm Wrestling Champion competition, with lords and ladies divisions(all are welcome to compete), the Carillion People's Choice Awards(an A&S competition) and a Silent Auction benefiting the Carillion Camp Fund for Pennsic War.
Entertainers of all types are more than welcome to perform. Contact the autocrat for more information and scheduling(someone to lead and teach Dance would be appreciated).
Game Players please bring your games to share and teach to all. (I have only one Nine Man Morris board...Help!!)
Merchants, tables are available indoors for you to ply your wares. Ample merchant space is also available outside the hall if the weather is favorable. The only merchant fee is an item to be donated to the silent auction.
