Last Week

Coronation was Saturday in Carreg Wen. During the first court of Their Majesties Agrippa and Bridget, Lady Gwen was made a Companion of the Harp Argent, and Lord Paul was a made a Companion of the Dolphin. The Shire’s presentation to Their Majesties was very well received. Thank you to everyone who helped out.

Queen’s Champion was on Sunday. His Lordship Todde made to the finals for rapier. The Shire had a good a turnout and narrowly avoided being charged with treason for implying that we might try to lick the Queen. (“Eum linximus, nostrum est.”) Thanks to everyone who came out and had fun.


This Week

Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium and Nordwache Anniversary are both this weekend. Paul and Gwen are going to the former; is anyone going to the latter?

We will be cleaning out and moving the Shire’s storage shed on Tuesday, June 17th, at 6 PM. Please contact Lodovico for details; many hands make light work.

Fighter Practices will be shifting to summer schedule on Wednesday, June 18th. Both rapier and armored practices will be held at Girsh Park, near the corner of Phelps and Pacific Oaks, starting at 6 PM.
