His Excellency Baron Wulfric sends his greetings, and invites one and all to join the Barony of Gyldenholt on Sunday, April 20, 2008 for a day of feasting, revelry, gaming, feasting, dancing, good fellowship and, of course, feasting. As this will be Their Excellencies last Baron's Feast, Her Excellency is promising a memorable repast.
Once again we will gather at Irvine Regional Park (1 Irvine Park Road, Orange, CA) at Group Area #3. Feasting for day will consist of various "appeteasing" delicacies. This will be followed throughout the day with a variety of roasted meats, vegetables, grains, fruits, and other savories for your enjoyment. (His Excellency is, as usual, gratefully accepting Her Excellency Lasairfhiona's assistance for the feast preparation.) Please be sure to visit the Gyldenholt website (www.gyldenholt.org) for more detailed information.
There will also be the long traditional delicacies of funnel cakes, Longshore potatoes and fruit ices. Please bring feasting gear including plate, bowl, cup and utensils. Although the site is DRY, drinks of various kinds will be provided throughout the day. Your pets are welcome, but must be kept on a leash at all times.
We have many games and activities planned, and please feel free to bring your chess sets and other period pastimes. Rumor has it that the Maypole may even make an appearance.
