Last Week

Dreiburgen Anniversary was on Saturday in Jurupa Valley, CA. Lord Paul had fun day there, in part because it was announced by Their Majesties and Their Highnesses that he will be succeeding Master Cormac Mor as Crescent Principal Herald next June.

There was a Silk Pennon Painting workshop on Saturday afternoon led by Lady Gwen. Gwen, along with Constanza and Lady Hette, made 15 more little flags for use at Anniversary, along the lines of the ones we made at Craft Night the previous week. Many thanks to the three of them for helping to make our event more beautiful.

Agincourt Tourney was hosted by the Barony of Altavia at Woodley Park in Van Nuys, on Sunday. Congratulations to Lord Philip, the new Thrown Weapons Champion of Altavia, and to Lady Gwen and Lord Paul, who placed second in the heraldic display competition. The Shire’s gratitude goes out to the Barony of Altavia for allowing us to our inaugural Thrown Weapons Championship, the result of which will be announced at Isles Anniversary. Many thanks to The Honorable Lady Medb and Lord Philip for running it.


This Week

Fall Coronation and Queen’s Champion are Saturday and Sunday in Gyldenholt. It sounds like Paul, Gwen, and Lady Delphine will be attending the former; it may just be Paul and Gwen at the latter. We will be making a presentation to the new King and Queen; please let Gwen know right away if you have something to be included. We will not be be bringing the Blob to Queen’s Champion.
