Countess Judith de Northumbria, Head of European Dance for Pennsic 40, reports on preparation for the Grand Ball to be held August 9, 2011 at Pennsic.
Her Excellency writes:
To all who read these words, may it be known that the Grand Ball, held in the barn of the town of Pennsic on Tuesday, August 9th of the 2011th year of the Incarnation, shall be a colour ball in the tradition of the court of Lord Phillip, Duke of Burgundy, Count of Charolais, etc., and that the colors shall be white and red to create a resplendent ambiance in the darkness of the evening. Don garments of one or both colors and come and dance away the evening! (the wearing of red and white is not a requirement for participation, merely an attempt to add flair to the proceedings).
