University of Guelph Medieval and Renaissance Society/Canton of Der

boundless energy in both the armoured combat and fencing demos and for the
lending of the list posts.
I would like to thank Their Excellencies Ramshaven, Baron Kolbjorn and
Baroness Wencendel and their son Alexander for their noble presence and
brining a bit of pomp and circumstance (as well as cuteness) to the demo.

coordinating with the College Royal staff which allowed the demos to go off

list for both Saturday and Sunday.
I would like to thank THL Asa Gormsdottir, who fielded questions, provided
answers, updated the hand out and got it copied, made the displays look
pretty and generally made sure things were on an even keel.

where she showed off her excellent sewing skills.
Finally, I would like to thank the student members of UGMRS, who took time
from their busy studies to help out. Thank you Bailey, Heidi, Eric, Harrison
and Martina. You are the new face of the Canton of Der Welfengau and your
service is greatly appreciated.
Yours in Service
