Take heed scholars and artisans for there will be classes and competition, archers prime your bows and fl etch your arrows, fighters of all types brace your arms, cooks make provision, and dancers lace your gillies - for we shall Geld the Devil for sure! A lunch of soup and bread will be served for Saturday’s lunch and Saturday evening’s feast will be Potluck with grilled meat provided. Potluck will be by Society first name A-F breads, spreads and cheeses, G-L fruits and veggies M-R starchy dishes (potato goodness) and S-Z desserts. Note there is no electricity or potable water on site.

Classes to be taught will include lessons on Traveling Dishes by Her Excellency Clare Elana, Painted Bird Feathers by Her Excellency Isabella Hawke and Wool Paneled hats by Mistress Anna di Caterina Neri.

His Highness’ whim is to be entertained during feast with bardic competition and Her Highness’ whim is to engage in “combat embroidery” with an emphasis towards period versions of “Minions”.

Competitions abound with Archery to slay the Sea Monster and Rapier Plank battle, Two on Two mixed weapons for heavy fighters and a last couple standing dance competition for those looking for physical exertion. For those members of the populace keen on competing using a little less sweat there will be several A&S completions.
