      Greetings to the Noble Halls of Northshield and beyond...
      Border Skirmish VII is just around the corner and what better place to be than 
      at the beach, soaking up the sun, and having fun shopping, taking classes, 
      singing/dancing, general merriment, and let's not forget.... hitting each other 
      with sticks!  LOTS of sticks!
      We have a lot of really fun activities this year that we believe you will keep 
      you smiling, learning and entertained all weekend long..... such as the castle 
      building competition, woodworking competition, LOTS of fighting during the day 
      and evening tourneys ...... shopping, classes, step through time in our period 
      encampment, see the SCA through the eyes of the mundanes during our demo, 
      oooh and awww" at the skilled arts on Artisan's Row, browse our Silent Auction, 
      revel in the pageantry of our King and Queen's presence and court, hear the 
      laughter from our youth activities, and lets not forget about the food.... oh, 
      glorious food ......  
      The Griffon and Dragon Tavern will be here this year to delight us with many of 
      our old favorites, and this year will also be offering dinner on Friday night, 
      and a pancake breakfast and lunch on Saturday!  Saturday night is the "BYOM and 
      a dish to pass" pot luck feast where once again, hot grills will be available to 
      cook your roast beast, and baked potatoes will be provided along with all the 
      A concert of performers will entertain us prior to court, bardic circles will 
      woo us in the evening by firelight, and the merriment of Captain Martini and his 
      crew will share their stories and ale to all with a coin or two as they sail 
      into port for a fun weekend!
