Yesterday at Simple Day, several of us Ayretonians travelled down and
had a great day. Some congratulations are in order, even:
The Thieves of Hearts were, as usual, the heart and soul of the rapier
field, defending their honor against all comers, and hosting what
promised to be a killer party on Friday night.
The Pippins did a nice set (if I do say myself) of our usual period
songs just prior to the start of court.
Several Ayreton members were named to the Rapier Champions' team, but
since that list has not been published (merely announced at the
event), I can't say as I recall who all of them were.
Two Ayreton fighters were named as Unbelted Champions of the
Midrealm! Sabah al Rashid and Henry of Exeter will take the field
with 43 of their brothers-in-arms on Sunday at Pennsic, immediately
after opening ceremonies, to combat 45 of the Eastrealm's finest. On
the following Friday, those 45 heroes (our two among them) will be
joined by 15 more alternates (including myself), to fight alongside 60
Eastern unbelts, against 120 champions assembled from the rest of the
I trust the rest of you had as great a time as Tacit and I did!
