Jugglers, Tumblers, and Bards II

Here ye now both song and tale of gallantry once more in the wide vast hills of Coppertree. In this our second act, again we call ye performers back. Singers, tale-spinners, dancers and even mime come once more for a wonderous time!

The Shire of Coppertree invites all to Jugglers, Tumblers and Bards II. Once again this will be held at the Madison County Fairgrounds, Brookfield NY (no street address). This year we will have classes beginning at 10 am on all varieties of performance as well as a unique bardic competition in the evening! Anyone who wishes to teach any form of performance should contact the autocrat, Bjorn Swiftaxe at Snaebjornr@yahoo.com

We are also proud to say that we will be having hound coursing on site as well this year. More information concerning this will be forthcoming. Duchess Elina Einarsdottir, Kingdom Hound Mistress will be coordinating this.

A "Gold Chain" style of weapons tourneys will also be held Saturday, June 25 courtesy of the Order of the Chivalry. The lists will open at 9 am with an Unbelted Tourney (no Chivalry) starting at 10 am. After a break for lunch the activities will continue with the Chivalry taking the field to teach their chosen forms in full armour. After feast and court there will be an open to all Torchlight Tourney. For more information, contact Duke Sir Morguhn at sirmorguhn@earthlink.net

The feast this year will be from the combined efforts of our own Baron Master Daniel del Cavallo and Lady Wynn Ravenlocke. The cost of feast is 6 dollars. For dietary concerns contact Lady Wynn Ravenlocke (Katie Grass) at Wynnowl@yahoo.com A light lunch board will be available to all.

Merchants are also encouraged and welcome to attend as there is plenty of outdoor space available. You will need to provide your own tables and cover.

Pets are welcome so long as they are on leashes (when not coursing). And please clean up after them.

The fees for the event are 15 dollars for the weekend, 8 dollars for day trip and 6 dollars for the feast. Children 6-12 will be half price and babes in arms (5 and under) will be free.
