From The Page (November, 1999):
Come one, come all to the Shire of Teufelberg Yule Revel, 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., at the home of our hosts, Viscountess, Jeanette of Briarrose and Viscount, Sir William of Briardust) (address omitted), in Lafayette.
Bring a potluck dish to share based on your mundane last name as follows: A-E = main dish, F-N = side dish or salad, O-Z = desserts.
Also bring slippers for inside house wear, a gift for the pirate gift exchange, games, musical instruments and a spirit of fun. Candles are ok, but please ask hostess prior to placement. We will provide hot and cold beverages (BYOB), chairs, music, a fireplace, and a spirit of fun.
There is no site fee, but donations to help cover Shire expenses will be cheerfully accepted. Please call the Autocrat (see below) or hostess at (phone) (no calls after 9:00 p.m.) or email (contact info) if you have questions or can bring a folding table and tablecloth suitable for dining.
There should be space to set up table seating for all.
Our traditional pirate gift exchange is the highlight of this annual event. Each participant brings one wrapped gift (suggested retail price range is from $2-$10) which is placed in a pile. Each person draws a number from a hat. Number One picks a gift from the pile. Number Two has a choice of the previously opened gift or one from the pile. If your gift is taken, you get another chance to take from the pile or steal one yourself! This goes on until all gifts are opened, then Number One gets to trade his or her gift for any of the opened gifts if desired. To prevent free-for-alls, each gift can be stolen only once per round. This activity usually provides a great deal of entertainment, as well as a gift for everyone!
