[GLE] Christmas Gathering

On Sunday, December 6, 2009 the Incipient Shire of Guardian Forest will host family, friends and visitors at the Hutchinson Mountain Community Center, close to Southside Batesville, beginning at 1:00 p.m. If you're not planning on going to the Tournament of Champions in Mississippi, come on out and join us.

Fighter Practice - beginning at approx. 1:00 p.m. - for heavies and, if we have a Rapier Marshal on hand, for light fighters, as well.

While the fighters play outside, the rest of us will play inside, working on whatever projects you care to bring and share.

Sunday evening, we will have a pot luck dinner starting around 6:00 p.m., so bring some goodies to share. Please bring enough food and beverages for yourself, your family and any guests you may bring. And if it pleases you, please bring a little more, to help accommodate those who may not know to bring anything. There is a nice kitchen here, should you need to do any on site preparations. Please also bring feast gear. And food need not be restricted to SCA period! If it's good, bring it! :)

Please note: as this is a public facility in a dry county, no alcohol, please! Thank you!

Period garb is preferred, but let's make sure our guests feel welcome to attend even in mundane attire. RSVP is not required, but would certainly be appreciated, as it will give us some idea of how many people and what kinds of food to plan on!

We will also have an ornament exchange for those who wish to participate. If you'd like, bring a wrapped ornament – handmade or store bought, either one – and we'll do an exchange during dinner.
