Flametree Ball will be running this year on May 22, 2010.
Where: Bulli Masonic Hall (the location used for the last many years!)
282 Princes Highway Bulli 2516 NSW Australia and is around 10 minutes north of Wollongong by car. The site is three minutes walk from Bulli Railway Station (West to highway then South). The NSW State Rail Authority provide a timetable of train services http://www.cityrail.nsw.gov.au/timetable/ttable.jsp?line=sc&day=we&dir=up .
Dance Practice will start at 2:30pm so come along and learn some dances, there usually isn't much time during the ball to teach dances, so if you would like to learn then this is the time to turn up!
The Ball itself starts at approximately 6 pm. The hall will reopen again at around 5:30 pm.
A generous supper will be provided with the tradional Lombards pastries being served along with many other tasty treats.
Cost: $15 for members and $18 for non-members
Bookings are not required but are appreciated by the 20th May to give an indication of numbers for catering reasons. If you haven't booked by this date but still intend coming, please still advise the steward. Please send bookings to: Lady Alessandra Fiora Piera della Morot: firstname.lastname@example.org
A few other items:
Jewellry - any period/ style. Be it necklaces, brooches, ear rings etc.
this competition is open to all levels of sewing whether you are a beginner or an expert, we would love to see something from all of you.
The Bardic Competition
The Shire of Adora welcomes the populace of Lochac to lighten the Flametree ball with their performance in our first bardic competition for the year. Entrants are to perform one short song or poem from any period or SCA related subject. Judging will be based on performance with bonus points for original compositions and documentation.
In the past a fencing tourney has been held in conjuction with Flametree Ball, unfortunately this year we have no fencers or a fencing marshal so it won't be run (unless of course the fencers out there would like it run and can organise something - I would be very happy to accomodate that). So with that in mind...
FlameTree Inagrual Heavy Tourney will be held. Lists open 1:00 pm with the tourney to start at 2:00 pm... and will contiune as long as there are people wishing to fight.
Yours in Service
