All are welcome to gather with us at Chateau de ffrayser for an afternoon and evening of fun, revelry, and camaraderie.
We'll start the day at 1200 with fighting in the yard and games/crafts indoors. If anyone is interested in teaching any classes, please contact the Steward... We'll have heavy and light fighting as long as fighters are willing; including (if we have enough fighters) Drachenwald's introduction to the infamous and grueling Halls of Valhalla tourney.
Following the afternoon's activities , we'll have a pot-luck feast and Yule revel starting at 1800. Please bring a dish to share, your beverage of choice, and your favorite musical instruments. We'll eat, drink, and make merry until we can't eat, drink, or make merry no more... The Crown will also be in attendance so we'll probably have Court in there somewhere too - at least long enough to banish the Steward for being mouthy... :-)
For those who would like to spend the night we have crash space available or if anyone is really enthusiastic they can camp in the yard. For camping/crash space, please email the event steward no later than 1 Dec to make arrangements. A light breakfast will be provided to those staying on site; please plan to be off site by 1400.
For the real die-hards, we'll also be making a field trip in garb to the
Esslingen Mittelalterlicher Weihnachtsmarkt on Sunday afternoon. Feel free
to tag along and/or meet us there! More info is at:
