Dzien Dobry, Pan Nikolaj Wierzynek has graciously invited the population of the known world to celebrate the anniversary of Golden Rivers at his Krakow residence (the Polish-American Hall in Roseville) on the feast day of Saint Katarzyna. Invitations may still be coerced from Pan Mlkolaj's household steward, Wylowen of Stuarts Og Dunniwey, for the meager bribe, er , donation of $8.00 until November 1st. After that the steward will ask for a $9.00, uh, fee. He can be reached at (contact info). Pan Mikolaj's comrade St Starosta Pan Wawrzyniec Wawrzyn-Gryfski and Pan Wawrzyniec's wife Donna Marcilina will be rewarding the gentle attending in the best Polish attire (16th century). Pan Wawrzyniec will also be taking monetary persuasion to fill four judgeships to help him choose the finest miod (mead) in the province, with special distinction for the best new brewer (less than 1 year experience, documentation will consist of the recipe). All brewers should submit their entries a little before vespers (4:45) as judging will take place as the doors to the feasting hall open (5:00). A glorious Polish feast has been planned hy Donna Marcilinn, to be served by the Turkish household staff.

Direct inquiries regarding entertainment to Lord Wylowen or Pan Wawrzyniec (name) at (phone). Czeszch!
