Spring Thaw

Spring is returning to Artemisia and the Shire of Twae Linnes would like to invite all to celebrate with them at their annual SPRING THAW Event.

After the long cold winter let us gather to celebrate the renewal of life in our lands. We will celebrate with games, food, and even some silliness.

How about a prize for the best bedtime garb and the best new spring garb!!

For the children, there will be a hunt of the traditional symbol of spring, EGGS, so bring your baskets and best hunting skills.

For the fighters among us, our traditional Shire Defender Tourney will be held. For those who do not partake in the traditional arms a little more genteel tourney with PILLOWS!!!

Games of skill and chance will be available for play. Chess, backgammon and more!

After a day of fun and frivolity we will sit down to a most unusual feast. The long winter has drained the cupboards of most things but our feastocrat has come up with a delicious meal to fill our bellies. The menu will include all things BREAKFAST!!! Pancakes, waffles, (with all the toppings) eggs (scrambled and stuffed) sausage, ham, biscuits and gravy, muffins and the first taste of fresh fruit!!!

During the feast, we would love to hear your best BEDTIME stories or lullabies. The populace will decide on the best and a prize will be awarded!
