[EAS] East Kingdom Twelfth Night

Their wise and gracious Majesties Konrad and Brenwen, King and Queen of the East, recognize that when the winter solstice has passed in the land of the Northern Star, the snows will deepen, the winds will howl like wolves and the populace burdened with the hardship of winter will be in sore need of some good cheer.

So in this year Anno Sociatatis XIV on the 16th day of the first month of the year, the month the Romans dedicate to Janus and he Anglo-Saxons refer to as Wolfmonth, Their Majesties have asked the Shire of Panthervale to gather together in the warm, spacious, newly refurbished halls of the Barre Auditorium in the Granite Capitol of the Known World - Barre, Vermont- as many of the gentles of the East Kingdom and beyond as wish to join them in a celebration of the Twelfth Night.

Our celebration will begin at the break of day. Preparations and inspections for tourneys in Heavy List, Youth combat and Fencing will begin as the gates open on the main floor. Showers are available in the locker rooms. There is ample room for merchants in the main lobby. As the populace enters there will be an opportunity to bid on the wondrous offerings for in the Royal travel Fund Auction.

Throughout the day there will be A&S classes covering a variety of subjects and skills. Children's activities will be offered through the day and there will even be a small archery range( indoors)- just for the kids!

There will be live musical performances offered in different areas throughout the site all day long.

We will host a Dessert Subtilties contest in the evening.

There will be a morning day board with light fare for all.
