Baronial Champs 2017
As another chapter in our beloved Barony comes to a close this July, our new Baron & Baroness, Gunther & Rosheen will ascend the Cattail Thrones. Within a few months, our current Baronial Champions will be competing at the Seven Pearls event in September. While we wish them all the best, we cannot forget that this Fall, the time will come for Gunther & Rosheen to select our new Baronial Champions. Everyone is encouraged to participate and showcase their skills in heavy fighting, fencing, throwing weapons and archery. Artisans are also encouraged to show their talents in the Arts and Sciences competition, as a new A&S champion will also be selected. (Bardic Champion will be selected at our next 12th Night in January.)
Baronial Champs will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the St. Michael Sportsman Club in St. Michael, PA. This was the same site we used a few years ago for Adam Walker’s Memorial Fundraising event that was a success. There are large lawn areas for martial activities/tournaments, as well as a spacious hall for court and in the event of rain.
The autocrats for this event will be Lady Elizabeth Rosamond (Kristen Caddy) and Melissa of the Bog (Melissa Agypt). The event will run all day from approximately 10-6, and there is no cost for admission. Per tradition, there will be no feast but an all day potluck, coordinated by Lady Donatella da Fano (Loretta Schultz), with the Barony providing the meat and drinks. Everyone is asked to bring a side dish or a dessert, especially soup!! Please contact Lady Donatella as to what food item you will be bringing at L1B9S54@gmail.com or 814-254-4907. You are welcome to bring your own feast gear, but paper plates and cutlery will also be available.
*Parking is available on the front lawn; The Sportsmans Club asks that we do not use the upper pavilions and restrooms, as there is no running water up there. I know that the weather has a tendency to turn crappy in October, so dress warm and come out to support our Barony and your fellow Boggers!
