For those of you who did not get to come to Athenaeum, here's what happened.....
We had a good show from Ardanroe. Lorrican brought his entire family. Also in attendence were Symon, Amelia, and Avice.
Lorrican had great fun fighting in the Rose and Diamond sponsored Tournament. The tournament winner was Mordan of Tor an Riogh who won with a combined 5 challenge wins and 10 bonus points awarded by the ladies of the gallery. Sir Wenerus and Sir Bart had 14 and 10 victories respectively.
The rapier group had a grand time running woods battles but alas, James was not there to participate so all I can say is that they looks like they were really having a good time out there.
Symon and Amelia took several of the classes including ring making and silk screening. Avice had an A&S demo about the use of eggs in period cooking. Also being demonstrated were a miniature model of a castle keep by Lady Llweyn and the A&S 50 Challenge by Mistress Margot du Bois. Avice will bring details of the A&S 50 Challenge to the next A&S night to share with those who might be interested.
The weather was lovely, cool and breezy but not cold - ideal for most campers. In total there were 88 people in attendence. Everyone enjoyed plentiful food and good times.
