Last Week

Lyondemere Arts and Archery was on Sunday. Shimon was apparently the only attendee from the Shire, and reports indicate he had an awesome time.


This Week

Our cousins to the north, from the Barony of Tarnmist in the Kingdom of the West, have extended invitations to all residents of the Shire to join them at their archery practices (regularly held on the 3rd Sunday of the month) and their dance practices (regularly held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month). The next occurrence of each of these is this Sunday, the 16th (archery) and this coming Tuesday, the 18th (dance). If you are interested in going to either (and possibly carpooling), please email the list.


Further Away & Other Bits

Crown Tournament is Saturday, February 22nd, in Dreiburgen. Rumor has it that at least two — and possibly four — residents of the Shire will be fighting in the Crucible portion of the tourney. The Shire has reserved eric-front space and we will be bringing the Blob. If you are interested in attending, please contact Lord Paul to help arrange carpools.
