Elmendorf AFB, AK
From The Page (February, 1997):
In celebration of the season of love, we will hold a revel at the manor of Francis Bull of Kent and Cassandra von Verden. The Baronial Guard Tourney will be held at this time, so get your 3-person teams together. The tourney will begin at 1pm.
After the tourney, there will be a discourse on the definition of what a virtuous lady is (or should be) according to period songs, poems, and other literature, Please bring your ideas, and any songs, poems, or other literature you would like to share. When the discourse is finished, we will have a bardic to praise love and the inspiration we receive from those we love. (Sounds like a good contest.)
We will not be having a sit-down feast, but potluck items are needed for the groaning board. (Piroshkis will be provided by the autocrat.) Bring potluck items by the first letter of your modern last name: A-F: Main Dish, G-L; Side Dish, M-R: Dessert, S-Z; Breads/Spreads.
The site is discreetly wet, and everyone is reminded to use designated drivers. (We do live on a rriilitary installation and the guards are quite adamant about this point.)
Site fee is your potluck dish to pass. Contact the autocrat by Thursday, Feb. 13 if you plan to attend this event. I will give you directions to our manor and add your name to the list for the gate guards so your entry onto base is quick and easy.
Autocrat: Cassandra von Verden (contact info omitted).
