[ATE] Bacchanal

Please join us for the sixth annual Brymstonne Bacchanal on Saturday April 4th, 2009.

The College of Brymstonne once again cordially invites one and all to don their togas, find their fibulas, tie-on their chitons and join us for a day of revelry, games, food, and fun!

Upon your arrival you will be conscripted into either the Greek or the Trojan legions. The afternoon will be filled with field competitions and table games as well as a variety of other diversions. Throughout this past year we have been working hard training in the Brymstonne Stables. Our steeds are ready and eager to run in Brymstonne's inaugural Chariot Races! So come and be one of the first drivers to enjoy this sport!

The day's diversions will be concluded with a battle between the opposing armies - for all who wish to participate (water and missile weapons provided depending on warm weather, otherwise alternative weapons will be used.). Prizes will be awarded to the victorious and fortunate. Feasting will follow the day's activities, menu forthcoming - please watch your local list and the Brymstonne website.

The site will open at noon - picnic lunches welcome! Feast will be served at 4pm and the site will close at 6pm. The event will be held at Hollis Park, located in Tempe.

Site fee is $3 for adult members, $6 for adult non-members, 18 and under are free. Feast will be $7 and must be prepaid to Lady Kateryn Treningham (Lesa Bornost) the Brymstonne Exchequer (see below for mailing address) by Sunday March 15th. The meal will be served buffet style and there will be a limited number of feast spots available the day of the event.

Bring blankets if you wish to lounge on the ground or chairs if you prefer upright seating. A permit has been obtained so the site is damp. Glass containers are not permitted. There are some trees, however pavilions are welcome. Smoking is allowed. Pets on leashes are welcome, be prepared to clean up after them. Camping and fires are not allowed. Cars are allowed on paved streets and parking lots only.
