of interest to those attending Birka
- Ok folks we here in Stonemarche (that's in the Eastkingdom. New
Hampshire in Mundanian) Are hosting "a Market day at Birka" once
again. This has become the largest one day event in the Eastkingdom
and I wanted to let you guys know about a few of the festivities that
I am involved with that you may be interested in.
Unto all Bards who read this I send greetings, and an
invitation/challenge to join our first ever Birka Bardic
Coffeehouse! Our most gracious Autocrat has set aside space and time
for us to display our skills and talents to the populace. (11am-2pm
in the dining area) Do not let this opportunity pass us by! Come
uphold the honor of the Bardic arts with your songs, stories, poems,
instrumental talents, juggling, magic, and even PUPPETS! We have
even been given permission to put out the hat so that the populace
may show their appreciation of our talents. As time and space are
limited (it will be scheduled in 5 min. increments with a max of
20min) it is highly recommended that you reserve space ahead of time,
the schedule is already filling up so reply soon. To pre-register
contact, well, er... Me. r_c_macfrode@y...
You are all cordially invited to attend the Birka Ball! Come show
off your most graceful moves, your most lavish Garb, and those
wonderful accessories you just bought at Birka and can't wait to show
off!! But especially come be entertained by Stonemarche's own live
music group "Sir Robin's Minstrels"! We're kinda proud of having our
own minstrel group so come give us the chance to show them off. The
Birka Ball will start at 8:00 PM. and end when people get tired or
they throw us out. (that would be 12:00 PM. pumpkin time.) If you
are staying the night in the hotel why not get as much SCAdian
ambiance for your entrance fee as you can? And if this isn't enough
to tempt the timid to trip the night fantastic, there's more! We
will be having a dessert buffet prepared by Lady Cathy peacock, and
just to let you in on a Stonemarche secret, that means it's GOOD
EATIN'! Also, if you are worried about not knowing the dances, we
will be having classes during the day (theoretically 2:30 PM. to 4:00
PM. SCAdian time). Below is a list of Dances we know will be
taught/danced at the Birka Ball others may be available depending
upon interest and teaching staff. If you have any questions or are
interested in helping teach a dance that "Just has to be danced"

with plague? Charity is all well and good, but perhaps those who seek
to cheer the inmates would do well to stand outside their windows
rather than breathe the ill humours of a coughing house.
