United Methodist Church,

From The Page (October, 2005):

Henry VIII Tudor and Anne Boleyn are currently the King and Queen of England. Have you ever wanted to wear late period garb? Is your fancy court garb collecting dust in your closet? Now you have a chance to make new late period garb or get that court garb out of the closet. Bring your best Tudor garb and join us as we celebrate a day in the court of Henry & Anne. The event will include a Royal Ball after feast. There will be dance classes taught all day for those that wish to learn the dances for the ball. There will be 8 dances to choose from for your enjoyment. The Royal Ball will be from 6-8pm. Contests and events throughout the day: Bardic contest for performing one of Henry the VIII songs (voice or instrument) / Best Tudor Garb (Lord & Lady) / Best Men's Cod Piece / Best Ladies Hair Piece / Hand Kissing Contest / Chess and Games Tournaments / Classes on courtly graces

Feast will be served strictly at 5-6pm (so we can get the Royal Ball completed on time) and will be potluck by the first letter of your modern last name: A-G meat dishes, H -N starches and breads, O-U vegetables, fruits, and cheeses, V-Z desserts.

Site Information: Site opens at noon and we must be off site by 9 pm. Site Fee is $8 for members (ages 13 and up), $3 per child (5-12 years old), and $11 for non-members. The site is DRY. We also ask that you do not bring any red or dark colored liquid refreshments. The site is a carpeted gym and we will be charged for any stains on the carpet. If you have small children or babes in arms please be sure to have a sippy cup for them. We are limited to using tackyputty to put up banners on the walls. Those of you that have stands to display your banners, please bring them. There will be a Tudor dessert contest with documentation. Desserts will be judged before the feast so they may be enjoyed by all at the feast.

Autocrat: Christina Landswalker of Penrose (contact info omitted).
