Though Friday was more than a bit wet, Saturday more than a bit warm, and Sunday unknown to me since I left after feast on Saturday night, this year's Schutzenfest in the Barony of Nordskogen which had a Mongolian theme and added equestrian activities, seemed to be successful. At least 56 archers and a dozen there to work with the horses plus those toiling in Mistress Aramanthra's kitchen to provide a most wonderful feast (one of the first times that HE Rodrigo left the table more than a bit satiated since it was mostly meat...meat...and more meat), and a number of us just there to enjoy friendship and feast, had a wonderful day.
