Feast: Pot Luck:
Please indicate whether you will be bringing, a main dish, a side
dish, a drink or a dessert. Please send information to
Now we have some time to plan this event so we need to take advantage
of the time we have.
What we need to do:
*Procure a hall or other event location
*Ensure that all members have everything they need
*Design and build any kingdom aesthetics we might still need
*Receive an RSVP from all who plan to attend
Feast Gear: I realize most of you have very little equipment in this
regard but some suggestions are in order. The Salvation Army usually
has a decent selection of wooden bowls and tin platters. Add a
medieval style mug, stein or goblet (also found at the thrift store.
From there add a wooden handled
knife, a fork and a spoon and a candle and candle holder complete the
set. The Dollar stores have some rather nice damask table runners in
various colors during the holidays. Find one close to the background
color of your intended heraldry and it will bring you closer to your
complete table setting. This is used to make your individual table
the pointy end draped off the table making a shield shape, later you
can add your device.
Lacking these, please bring a place setting from home.
We will provide a bucket of warm water to rinse your items for
Clothing: I also realize we are all just getting started so proper
medieval clothing is difficult. If you would like some instruction on
making a tunic or tunic dress,or ideas on what and where to buy a
decent outfit, contact me and we can set up a time to
dash something together. If you are so inclined, you may also look at
http://www.renstore .com for a nice simple medieval outfit.
With regards to the lower half of your body, please wear boots as
there will most likely be snow or mud to contend with.
I also sent out links to a couple of other locations which will get
Fighters: If you plan to fight in the introductory tournament Or the
ranking tournament, please come prepared with your weapons, shield,
helm, neck protection and *gloves. If you need help with these, I will
be happy to lend a hand.
We may be fighting in the cold so be sure to wear your long johns or
other warm clothing to the tournament! This is where tabards are
important as they cover most of the modern look of winter cloths..
