March 15, 2014 (AS XLVIII)

Wasilla Boys and Girls Club,
Wasilla, AK

From The Page (March, 2014):

Celebrate the Ides of March in true Roman style with a Roman themed tournament, some favored Roman games, a Mediterranean themed potluck, & perhaps a bit of intrigue as well. Celebrants for the event will be given enough coins to participate in a variety of activities where, just like the favorite amusement of soldiers and the aristocracy, you can bet on games & even the fighting if you so choose. As an added reward, a prize will be given to the person with the most denarii by the end of the event. Make sure to dress in your best Roman clothing as the Empire's authorities will be out enforcing the Foreigner Tax. Don't have roman garb yet? It's easy to make & in no time you too can look like a Roman and bypass the authorities without paying the hefty fine. You can find an article on basic Roman clothing in this newsletter to help you get started. Gladiators of the lands of Oertha, prepare yourselves! A Roman-themed tournament worthy of any gladiatorial arena will take place in which you will fight with daggers. There will be a Mediterranean-themed potluck, showcasing delicacies from around the Roman world. Please bring enough to feed 8-10 people. The suggested potluck assignment is by mundane last name. A-F Pasta or Antipasto G-L Meats M-R Breads or Cheese S-Z Fruits or Vegi Many more items will be added before the event. We sincerely hope that your Ides of March goes better than Caesars…& if we can help it, it will.
