Yuletide, in the Year of Our Lord 1396…the Turks have ended the pretensions of the French and the Last Crusade. The Barony of Delftwood is subdued, hushed and waiting for news when….Sweeping through the door on a blast of wind and snow comes our Baron’s Beloved Eldest Son, home safe from the Holy Lands!
“Father, I have returned! Guess what followed me home and…can I keep them???”
Dancers and drummers from the Levant, foods from Crete and Spain and Far Araby, all assembled for your Delectation at Delftwood’s Baronial Yule Celebration, sponsored by The Canton Of Angels Keep. Join us on Saturday, December 9th 2006, in the Great Hall of the Throop Fire Dept., 7159 Beech Tree Road, Auburn NY 13021, from 10 o’clock of the morn until 9 of the evening to dine, dance, and indulge! A games table, dancing (both European and Levantine), and a nerf-archery target shoot for the little ones are planned.
A good English feast with Middle Eastern touches is in the making, as well as a full dayboard. This is a WET site, so brewers bring your wares for a Tasting Session! We are also collecting new unwrapped toys for this season’s Toys For Tots campaign.
Autocrat for the day is Lady Gillian McGill de Verona. Our Feastocrat is the estimable Edward Harbinger. Questions for the autocrat may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and dietary concerns may be addressed to the feastocrat at email@example.com
Costs for the day’s festivities are $8.00 per adult, $6.00 per child 6-16, babes-in-arms to age 5 free, plus $7.00 per person for Feast. Family cap is $50.00. ($3 non-member surcharge will be collected at the door.) Reservations are encouraged as Feast is limited to 60 gentles.
