In response to desperate pleas from frustrated parents of An Tir, the Shire of Midhaven with the assistance of the Barony of Aquaterra are once again holding a Youth Allthing. A day of activity for kids who are bored with events that only have activities for adults.
There will be a variety of classes and fun for all age groups. Classes currently include: Banner-making, Kube, Bocce ball, Castles & fortifications (hands-on), Weapons & armor (hands on), Needle felting, Darts, Thrown weapons, Camping Safety, etc. See the class schedule at the Midhaven website.
Lunch will be provided. Attend Courtly Graces class with Baron Cedric & Baroness Brighid, as well as story-time with Duchess Angharad.
A feast is planned with food kids (big and little) like to eat, sponsored by the Barony of Aquaterra.
There will be a Dessert Auction held in the evening to raise funds for Shire archery equipment. Donations of desserts will be gladly accepted.
A table will be available for kids to draw artwork for the April edition of The Crier. The Kingdom Chronicler will be at the event to collect submissions. The artwork can be drawn in advance of the event or at the event.
For stray adults there will be a Herald's consultation table, coloring books and other fun activities to keep them out of their children's hair.
There will also be an afternoon session for adults to learn how to start a College of Pages in their area. For more information, contact Countess Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org or Baron Godric at email@example.com
