From The Page (February, 2011):

We invite all and simdry to join us in celebrating the Feast of Feralia. We will be holding the event at Vanicha Park, the elegant estate of Their Excellencies, Baron Ii Katsumori and Baroness Abe no Akirakeiko. On Saturday, there will be a gladiatorial tournament open to all authorized heavy-weapons fighters with a totunament prize provided by His Excellency, Baron Ii Katsumori. Additionally, Her Excellency, Baroness Abe no Akirakeiko will be sponsoring an A&S competition on the theme of the Roman festival of Feralia, as described in Ovid's Fasti: "an arrangement of wreathes, a sprinkling of grain and a bit of salt, bread soaked in wine and violets scattered about". In the evening. Baroness Abe no Akirakeiko and the culinary guild of Golden Playne are planning to amaze our palates with a Roman feast redacted from recipes foxmd in Apicius' De Re Coquinaria. During the feast, Klement St. Christoph, is sponsoring a bardic competition on the theme of departed ancestors. The subject of the performances may center on historical personages or other individuals who have departed this life, former residents of the Palatine Barony of the Far West who have moved to other branches, or Palatine Barons and Baronesses who had departed the Baronial throne. On Sunday, we will be hosting a rapier practicum to introduce the members of Golden Playne to the fine art of defense. For those not interested in participating in the light-weapons training, there will be a series of arts and sciences activities.
