YULE TOY TOURNEY VIII
In honor of the upcoming Holiday Season, the Barony of Nottinghill
Coill invites you to join us in celebrating Yule Toy Tourney VIII – A
As the Yule Season approaches, many of our
thoughts will turn to family and friends. In this time of joyous
celebration, we should all remember those that may be less fortunate
than ourselves. In the spirit of the Season, we are proud to be
sponsoring Country Santa again this year by gathering toys for the
children and families of our Barony. The toys will be given out to
children by the Country Santa organization to help make the Yule season
bright for everyone!
Check out countrysanta.org for more information about this worthy cause!
For our overnight guests we have rooms that come standard with
bathrooms that have showers and heat or air conditioning as the weather
requires. The rooms are dorm style and sleep from 6 to 12 gentles.
Linens, blankets and towels must be provided by guests. There are only
64 beds available so get your reservations in early. The event cost is one new, unwrapped toy per person! (Participants in Martial Activities and A&S Activities are asked to donate 1 additional toy per activity entered.) Room cost is $15.00 per person for the weekend. Feast cost is $10.00 per adult, children 7 years and younger who join us for feast are guests of the Barony.
