The Forty-Third Year

Spring Captaincy -- Winter's Gate

May 31 - June 1, 2008 (AS XLIII)

Pioneer Park,
Fairbanks, AK

From The Page (May, 2008):

We, the People's Senate of Winter s Gate, invite you join in our celebration of the Goddess Diana as we fight in the Circus Flaminius to determine our baronial Captain who will lead our troops to war after the spring planting. We intend to sacrifice game to the goddess Diana through the rites of Piñata. Offerings to Diana should serve 8 to 10 adults, sides, greens, main dishes, or desserts. Period foods, Roman, or otherwise, are encouraged. The autocrats' whims are period game recipes (chicken or other substitutions allowed) and Roman clothing, from the Classical Period to the Fall of Rome; documentation (or really good rationalization) are encouraged and will be scored accordingly. We will provide a main meat dish. The Baroness' whim is flowers in needlework of any kind. The Baron's whim is pretty shields. Two categories: For the fighters, a call to improve the look of the militia's shields. Heraldic or simply something other than plain aluminum and wood shields. For the non-fighters, emblazoned shields in any mode. Feast to be served around 6 pm. Sunday's festivities will include a fighter practice; as well as a Baroness' tea and socializing.
