The Nineteenth Year

Yuletide Revel -- Earngyld
December 4, 1984

From The Page (December, 1984):

In order to give the populace tyme to prepare entries, the following is a partial list of the contets for the Barony of Earngyld's Yuletide revel on December 4. [sic]

  1. Fancy dress costume. Yuletide is a festive occasion. Let's make it even more so with fancy dress. Remember, not all fancy dress must be silks, satins, and velvets, even though that is the ultimate. Peasant dress can be made festive with embellishments and style.
  2. Best "Hole in the Wall" dance partner.
  3. Bardic storytelling. The outcome of the last bardic storytelling was so good that a similar contest will be held at Yuletide. The following four items should be incorporated into a story: a holly tree; an enchanted crystal; an old beggar; and a pile of ashes. Judging will be based on believability and creativity.
  4. Bardic narrative. This means the best presentation of a poem or story. The poem or story does not need to be original.
  5. Some kind of cooking contest. Any suggestions?

Anyone having any questions about the above contests or wishing to sponsor additional ones, please contact the AUTOCRAT, Wynflaed of Hawksmir, (phone).

Description of this event (if any), taken from The Page, or from memory of at least one person who attended the event.
