Granite Mountain Yule

The season of the sun is at an end and gentle white blanket of winter prepares to claim its place in the cool pines surrounding the Shire of Granite Mountain. All are invited to draw nigh and sit by the warm hearth of friendship and witness the challenges of the day.

A gathering of friends and kin would not be complete without food and drink. Let us feast! A bounty of beast, fowl, and earths delights will be prepared by the feast steward (THL Lutold von Sonnenthal). Feast reservations will be accepted until December 5, 2004. Send your paid reservation to: P O Box 1906, Chino Valley, AZ 86323. If you have any questions please call or write to: (928) 636-5924 or lutold@tricitytech.com. Volunteers for entertainment between removes will be greatly appreciated, please contact the autocrat to be put into the schedule of events.

Activities
Other diversions from the woes of winter shall include tournaments of armored combat and Boffer for the young gentles. Members of the populace can also try their hand at various games of skill through out the day. Amongst the games we will be holding a 9 man morris tournament. The youth can enjoy a bounty of activities including a stick pony joust in which a lucky young lord or lady can come away with a spirited stick steed of their own! There will be Arts and Sciences competitions for the most creative and artful table decorations in keeping with the evenings Yule theme, as well as a best hand made Yule ornament, with both a youth and adult category. The shire will be holding its annual gift exchange as well. Merchants are invited to be on hand to cast away any lingering melancholy and spare change.
