Welcome to the latest installment of Ice Weasel. As usual, this year's seriously, scholarly theme is "Now We are Six." As usual, the event can be summed up as "A smack and a nosh."
This year, in deference to our theme, we will have a "Heffalumps and Woozles Pit" Heavy List tournament. Also, in keeping with our theme, the rules for this game will be made up by the participants more or less before the start of the tournament With enough time and interest, we will do some melee fighting and training, and hopefully the first "1/100th of an Acre Woods Battle".
Hearty day board will be served, some of it actually within reach of the combatants. And there will be supper.
As supper will be prepared by Lord Fergus "Go Big or Go Home" Redmead, under the very, very watchful eye of Lady Molly Blythe, you can be assured that "Supper" be hearty.
If you are not inclined to stand hip deep in snow getting brained with a stick, Lady Alys Atwater has had her fellow artisans put together a series of classes to intrigue and astound.

Clothing by Aceline 12-1

Fracti Modi, the rocks stars of the 12th Century will be in attendance, and will be playing what they want, when they want and probably how they want.
Merchants are welcome. To be clear: Merchants are not charged for space or tables, but will be charged for attendence. And supper, if they stay to eat.
Court will be held. Baroness Nest has an excellent track record for holding amusing and brief courts.
Quickly gaining the reputation of the East Kingdom's best "Estrella Pity Party" we cannot promise the pagentry or the balmy temperatures of that Crusade, but we will refund your gate fee if you find a scorpion in your boots.
