Baron’s Ball
         Sept. 30 –
Oct. 2, A.S. XLVI

 

When
Harvest time draws nigh, one thinks of plentiful food, dancing,
sport, and merriment. Come and join the Barony of Wastekeep for our
Annual Baron’s Ball celebration and tournament as we gather
along the confluence of two glorious rivers under the trees and
enjoy the company of friends and family from near and
far.

 

We will be
having competitions for the Baronial Arts and Sciences Champion and
the Baronial Bardic Champion.

 

As this is
a Fall event and the holidays will be approaching, the Autocrat
would like to request that everyone attending this event bring at
least one can or box of non-perishable food for the local food
bank.

 

There will
be a Potluck Feast on Saturday evening. The Barony will provide the
meat. This will include Beef and Poultry. Others please bring
enough to serve 8 for each adult member of your family or group.
Please bring food according to the following list of mundane last

NEWS FLASH
8/18/11: I have received news that the Large bath/shower/medical
electricity building has been burned down by arsonists. I went to
see it today and spoke with the ranger about options for our event.
Hopefully the building will already be taken down to grade.
(It’s rather smelly right now!) There will be some biffies
around that area. They are trying to put together a couple of
temporary showers for us to use as well. Camping and so forth will
be as usual.

The
electric that may be available will be coming from a power pole out
in the field, so longer extension cords would be necessary and
keeping it to medical equipment need only. It will probably not be
good to try and power electric for appliances in the
RV’s.

 

The Rangers
always take such good care of us that I am sure everything will
work out and it will not affect the event in any noticeable way. We
look forward to seeing everyone at the end of
September.
