So Much On in August!

Greetings All,

St Andronicus O-Week Demo from 9am on Wednesday 2 August at Uni of Canberra on the Concourse.  We will have some displays set up, some flyers to hand out, and some fighters to fight.  Please come and help if you are available.

St Vitas dance and music weekend is on again this coming weekend (5-6 August 2017), and promises to be much fun, with classes from 10am Saturday and Sunday, and a feast and ball from 6pm Saturday.  We’ll have visitors from across the kingdom for this event.

Also on the schedule, we’re having a Polit and Adora War-Training day in Okewaite (19 August 2017) – this is a friendly day of training and exercises, and biffo, aimed at combat archery and heavy.  It runs from 10:30am to 3pm at Cockatrice Farm.  Please let me know if you’re coming so that we can cater for lunch.

Also, also coming up, we have a Yuletide Village Festival at Wamboin Community Hall (26 August 2017 from 1pm to 10:30pm). During the day we will revel in village games (heavy combat games, rapier games, archery games and just fun games).  In the evening we will celebrate mid-winter with more games, a tavern style feast, some dancing and general merriment.

So much on!  See you there.

Border War

Greetings All,

I shall be journeying to Bordescros for the 24th to 26th of February and call upon all who would aid me in stymieing the northward progress of Stormhold.  I hear that advance scouts of theirs have already been spotted in our lands since Thaw War last year, so we must take this fine opportunity to show them what for.

Thaw War: 2-4 September 2016

Greetings All,

This talk of war to the south concerns me greatly. Not only that our southern neighbors are flexing their muscles; not only the instability, distress and hardship that comes from war; not only that “Thaw War” sounds suspiciously like “Tharwa”, which is within our borders last I checked; but also that this event sounds like jolly good fun.

So I shall be journeying south to battle. Come join me!

Politarchopolis campsite at Rowany Festival

Greetings all,

As of today’s baronial meeting, I’m the campsite coordinator for the Politarchopolis campsite at this year’s Rowany festival.

If you are the contact for a household that is camping in the Politarchopolis campsite, or if you are not part of a household but want to camp with Politarchopolis: Please let me know how many people you expect to be camping with you and give me a list of your tent dimensions.

This will help me with planning out where to fit everyone and will help ensure our campsite gets enough land.

The other important way to ensure we are allocated enough space is to book for Rowany Festival. Go do that NOW!

Thanks,
