An Tir Twelfth Night 2006

It is time to begin plans and preparations for our most glorious winter event. Come join Their Majesties in the Barony of Three Mountains to crown their Royal Successors. Enjoy the many activities that include a Grand Ball and Heraldic Costume and Banner Contest on Friday night, the Kingdom Rapier Championship and much, much, more.

Good Gentles, come join the Barony of Three Mountains at the Grand Heraldic Ball at this year's Twelfth Night Celebration. Don your most fancy grab or participate in the costume contest in your best heraldically adorned clothing as an individual, couple or as a group. Enjoy this opportunity to dance, mingle and see old friends. For more information contact Lady Carith deCuevas at gribbit@gmail.com or Alexandria DK at adk@scribe.sca.org

Once again the Chivalry of An Tir will host a live auction at Twelfth Night. The 4th Annual 12th Knight Auction will be held directly before Their Royal Majesties Uther and Angharad's Final Court in the main ballroom. In light of all the natural disasters this year, including hurricane Katrina, proceeds will go towards the Red Cross. For more information, contact Sir Daniel at Wyddershin@hotmail.com

The Twelfth Night Costume Contest Is Approaching! The Kingdom Costumers' Guild is proud to once again sponsor its traditional FULL COURT GARB contest at Twelfth Night, so put on your richest finery and check out the action.
