[WES] Esfenn First Sword

Join us in sunny Esfenn for a day of fighting and feasting on Saturday, September 12, 2009.

We will start the day with the First Sword Tournament in the field behind the community center. Lists open at 10, and the fighting will start at 11. Martin of Rivenstar, our current First Sword, will devise a daunting day of miscellaneous melees. Bring a selection of swords: you'll get a chance to use them all!

Neighboring shire members are opening their home to fighters who wish to freshen up (showers!) before the feast.

The feast hall opens at 2 for set up. Feast-goers are welcome in the hall once everything is set. The first course will be served at 5:00. Feast courses and entertainments will alternate through the evening.

The talented Ysabella Dolfin is our head cook and will be presenting dishes from Scappi. She has been home-curing a delectable selection of meats for the feast and has a delightful selection of vegetarian dishes as well.

The hall generously allows beer and wine (mead counts!) after 5:00. No hard alcohol, please.

There will be performances by Ghislaine d'Auxerre, Bard of the Mists, Vittoria Aurelli, the Treblemakers, and many others! Lady Cynthia will lead the dancing through the evening.

The feast hall closes at 11. Because the kitchen at this site is small, it will not be possible to wash personal dishes on site.
