Harvest Captaincy and Collegium

The barony invites one and all to Harvest Captaincy, at which we will choose the next Captain of the Militia and Heart of Winter's Gate by right of arms. The barony is also planning a collegium over the weekend, featuring guest instructor Sabrina de la Bere, who will present a variety of needlework classes. A call for classes is hereby issued. All who would attend are encouraged to share with everyone the skills they have learned over their time in the Society. For more information about the classes and collegium, please contact the coordinator Morgana yr Oerfa, morgana@gci.net, She has the list of potential classes by Sabrina for comment, with the final decisions to be made immediately after coronet so Sabrina can plan her classes. She will also be scheduling the classes throughout the weekend. It is expected that a handful of classes will be taught on Saturday, in and around the normal Captaincy activities, with a full schedule on Sunday and another handful of classes on Monday, breaking up in plenty of time for visitors to head south. Saturday activities will include the tourney, baronial court, potluck feast, children's activities, dancing, bardic, etc. The site does not have a kitchen, but does have many electrical outlets for reheating food.
