Come and compete for a special feather in your cap this year; we are introducing new regalia! The time-honored regalia is being retired to the Reliquary display that will be located in the Feast Hall for all to enjoy.

Events:

Friday Torchlight Tourney and Shield "Recycling": There will be a heavy fighting torchlight tourney on Friday night, with a special bonus light source - we will be having a bonfire to help "retire" old shields and rattan sticks that are no longer serviceable. Please bring any shields or organics you wish to burn (stripped of any non-burnable materials please!) to help feed the fires of combat for the next season.

Merchant's Row: Care to vend at Eddies? We're happy to have you! The only fee is a small donation to the Silent Auction. Please contact Jadwiga at jadwiga.sca@gmail.com if you'd like to sign up!

Silent Auction: We will be holding our famous Silent Auction again near the erics. Come find some new treasures - but make sure you've got that pencil ready to outbid everyone! We are still accepting donations as well, if you have anything medieval-looking (or just plain interesting) that you'd be willing to donate.

Largess Competition: To display the generosity of our dear Shire, we will be holding a half-dozen derby for largess! No documentation needed; the items submitted should be six of the same kind with room for variation in color and pattern. Please note this is six complete items; for example, six pairs of socks, not six individual socks.

Feast: Our Feastocrats this year are HL Yzabels de la Costa and HL Jadwiga Radomyskova, and introducing Ryan and Danielle from Back East BBQ! This savory feast will be inspired by 14th Century France - tickets are $13.00 (same as the year!) and will be sold in advance as well as at the gate. Please contact Khaidu Naranaimorin at KhaiduKhan@msn.com for tickets. There will be off board dining available at separate tables for anyone who'd like to just come enjoy the cozy feast hall.
