Isles Anniversary was on Saturday. According to the Internet, everyone who came had a wonderful time.

  • Duke Sven Örfhendur won the armored combat tourney; Lady Eliane Duran won the rapier list.
  • Signora Gabriella Mocenigo captured the People’s Choice Arts & Sciences prize, while Lady Adelais de la Jupe Cramoise’s entry was judged to best embody the theme of “Revenge.”
  • Many, many thanks to our Event Steward, Lady Delphine de Montaillou, along with Don Todde MacDonnell, Count Angelo Paolo Cavelli, and Lady Juanica Montañes and a cast of dozens helping to create a framework in which the populace of Caid could create magic.
