[ANT] June Faire XXVII

Their Excellencies Cedric and Brighid invite you to join with their populace as we celebrate our 27th annual June Faire for a full weekend of festivities. Experience feats of armored combat, the finesse of rapier, high-flying missiles, equestrian activities, the skillful displays of artisans and the beauty of the bardic arts - as well as some of the finest, handpicked merchants in the known world. This is our annual Demo for the public; please show off your best for the moderns who attend.

The Faire is MOVING BACK within the Port Gamble town. We have designed a new event setting sure to encourage a better environment for the public and SCA participants. The site is without power and we encourage you to prepare for all possibilities. Visit www.portgamble.com for community info.

Peers of An Tir, please encourage your Apprentices, Protégés, Squires and Students to join in the many activities to showcase An Tir to the modern public…and to earn spiffy prizes
