- Oct 30, 2007Greetings, all!
If I haven't said this before, please excuse me. It's hard for me to get
time to write to this list. I want to thank all of you for you kindnesses
and the fantastic petition that was put together. I just read it two weeks
For those that do not know, I was on the voting list for Midrealm to become
a Pelican for service for Archery these past years. However, there were
several Eastern Marshals this past Pennsic who put together a petition to
Their Majesties of the Midrealm to ask them to elevate me into this order.
Master Mark Squirrelsbane, Mistress Baroness Tamar of the East instigated
this, and had about 100 signatures from the Pennsic Ranges that were from
all Kingdoms, Archery Marshals, Archers, Populace and Peers. Mistresses
Tamar, Pagean and another Pelican from the East, left the Pennsic Archery
Championships to go to the Midrealm Pelican meeting with the signed
petition. Mistress Tamar managed to get this done while I was at the ranges
and I never noticed anything odd. That night, they tricked me into Midrealm
Royal, where I was put on vigil (about 9pm). I had planned on going to
Philips (East Marshal) vigil..
To make a long story short, Thursday at Midrealm court, preceded by the
Greenwood Company, Scarlet Guard and other Archery Marshals and Archers with
full gear from The West, Aethelmearc, Atlantia, East, Midrealm, Ealdomere
and others, I walked into court followed by my family and Household (Duke
Syr Talymar's and I was elevated.
My heart sang as I walked, not that I was receiving this honor, but that all
the hard work that everyone had done and the honor they were giving me by
attending Midrealm Court. Afterwards, there was a wine and cheese revel at
my encampment, prepared and hosted by my Mistress Melisande and Mistress
Nichola Halden which was open to everyone who participated. (There were two
other revels nearby, so people floated between the three.) For all the
friends that were there Thank you! For those that couldn't go to Pennsic,
you were sorely missed.
Yours in Service,
(and just for you Mark - Mistress)
Pennsic Youth Archery Commander
