The Forty-first Year

Fool's Revel -- Winter's Gate

April 14, 2007 (AS XLI)

Boy Scout Office,
Fairbanks, AK

From The Page (April, 2007):

Join us in the foolish revelry of the coming spring. Help us choose the new reigning Fool of Winter's Gate; celebrate our fighter's prowess as they compete for the title of Champion of the College of St. Boniface; eat, drink and be merry! There will be a competition for Silliest Garb (use any materials but make it as period looking as possible.ie: blue tarp Viking), Silly Hat (Make a Fool's Hat) and Period Side Dishes (documentation requested please). The challenge for the current Fool and any wanna-be fool is a Bardic one. Foolish Aspirants will draw three words from a hat and "compose" a silly tale, song, or poem including those words and an "AaRGH!". Winner will be chosen by the Baroness and will get the dubious pleasure of reigning as the court Fool for the next year. There will be a Heavy tournament held at 2 pm (armor up at 1 pm sharp please) for the College of St Boniface. Fighters, come challenge yourself on the field of battle in honor of your consort and for your College and Barony. At noon there will be a "Servant for a Day" fundraiser auction. Come add funds to our coffers while having a goodly bit of fun. Dinner is potluck style. Please bring a dish to share that will feed at least 8. Use this as a chance to try out that period recipe you've wanted to make; you know you want to! Dinner will be held at 6 pm. Please be aware that the site is DRY. No alcohol please. Bardic will follow dinner, so please bring your songbooks.
