Announcement: Thomas Penyngton's Vigils
- Dear Ayreton,
I have the honor to inform you of the two days of vigil where you are invited to greet the knight-vigilant Master Thomas Penyngton and partiicpate in his vigil prior to his knighting ceremony.
Primus, Master Thomas Penyngton will stand a fighting vigil at Rites of Spring, April 6, in the Barony of Illiton.
At this event, Master Thomas will don his armor and fight all challengers for a certain time during the afternoon. After fighting Thomas, the challenger is invited to visit Thomas's lady, Mistress Amelie d'Anjou, under her pavilion for refreshment and thanks.
Secondus, Master Thomas Penyngton will sit vigil at Ayreton Carnavalle, April 13, in the Barony of Ayreton. The knighting will occur prior to the feast at this event.
During the day, Thomas will sit a contemplative vigil until time to prepare for his procession into Court for the knighting ceremony. There will be an area set aside for private conversation with Thomas, and a display of the symbols of knighthood, as well as a hearty welcome and refreshments for all.
All friends and well-wishers of Thomas are invited to either/both of the vigils, at your convenience!
Please communicate this notice to other lists, as needed.
Please contact Sir Fern, if there are any questions.
Fern de la Foret
