As I said last week, love traveling through this beautiful Kingdom of ours. This weekend was only 200 miles each way but it was through some wonderfully beautiful scenery in southern Minnesota to go to Silfren mere to meet our friends from Calontir at Ages of War. So it was hot. So it rained. So we had wind. But we made more memories with our friends on the field of battle, on the archery list, around the campfires and the bardic circles. Highlights included Gwyn CuCymry being inducted into the Order of Aquila and Halfdan Lackbeard into the Order of the Iron Griffon Legion as well as watching HRM Lars and HRM Semjaka going hand over hand on a beautiful sword of friendship to determine who really won the weekend. The answer--we all won! And the sword will be left in the keeping of the Shire of Herald's Hill in Calontir until next we meet.
Here are pictures of those memories from my viewpoint. For those of you that didn't make it, I hope you can join us there next year when it happens in Calontir. You can be sure that I'll be there!!
Picures of the weekend can be found online.
