Greetings and salutations from your fair cousins in the shire of Stan Wyrm! We invite you to join us at our own Yule Revel and Tourney for St. Nicholas. It will be held December 1, 2012 at the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation in Great Falls, MT.
Join us in the joy and festivities of the ending of the year! Come showcase your Arts & Sciences projects finished or unfinished to prepare for next years A&S event season. There will be a peoples choice display and competition for all those who would like to enter (no documentation required, although providing some description and history will garner feedback to help fine-tune your A&S entries down the road).
There will be a special Tourney in honor of Ol Saint Nick. It will be open to any and all fighters, heavy and light, with no belt restrictions. To enter, all fighters are asked to donate a canned food item. Fighters, also bring a new, unwrapped toy to gain the blessing of St. Nick and buy back your life (one time limit), or bring an extra can of food for a one time buy-back of a lost limb. All food items and toys will be donated to the Church food pantry or Salvation Army to help those in need.
In addition to the fighting and Arts & Sciences display/competition, we will be holding classes beginning brewing/mead making, dancing, etc. There are still slots open for classes, event steward as soon as possible as space and time limits the
number of classes. Classes will begin around 11:00 and continue throughout the afternoon.
The feast will consist of both lunch and dinner. Lunch will be provided by the Shire of Stan Wyrm and will consist of soup and chili, breads, cheese and summer sausage, and veggies. Hot spiced cider, coffee, tea and lemonade will be available all day.
The supper will be a period potluck provided by the populace. Bring a dish from the era and culture of your persona to share
with us all. We suggest making enough to serve at least 6 to 8. Please provide a card with a short description and history of your dish, including ingredients so individuals with food sensitivities know what they can and cant have. Also, please inform the feast steward of your dish, so we can print a menu. This can be done a week or two prior to the feast. The site is discreetly damp (it is a church after all).
