We have made arrangements with a local motel for a discounted rate. Remember that this is a dry site, the local cantina has been contacted and they know that there could be anywhere from 5 to 30 of us for after event drinks. They do karaoke on Saturdays, and while they do not have any period music for us, that doesn't mean we can't do a little filk.

Events of the Day:
* Site opens at 2:00 pm, there will be pre-court snackies, come and help decorate the hall and our Yule Tree.

* Please bring your banners and tapestries to help decorate the walls. We have a limited amount of banner stands so please let us know ahead of time if you need a banner stand.

* Gift exchange - Designed to help spread the wealth of the artistry of the populace, all items must be handmade. Participation is optional. Bring your handmade item, of course beautifully wrapped, and labeled as Lord, Lady, or Either. We will have a separate exchange for our youth, handmade is optional but desired.

* Friends of the Barony are always welcome to join us for our festivities.

We will have many activities throughout the afternoon and evening.

  • Table lighting and decorating contest – Bring out your best candles and your finest table decor. There will be a prize for both the best lighting effect and for the best overall table decor.
  • Ornament Exchange – Bring an ornament for the Yule tree and take an ornament home with you.
