Their Excellencies Beothuk of the Beothuks and Wilma the
Still invite you to Montengarde’s Beltaine festivities.
Beltaine is a time to celebrate renewal, and we are bringing
that to life with this event. Without new blood and renewal
of our energies and enthusiam, the Dream would become an
Obligation; therefore, we felt the best way to celebrate
Beltaine is to make it the Festival of the New! We have a new
hall and many new organizers, and would like to encourage
everyone to bring people who are interested in what we do,
but have not attended an event. By renewal, we ensure we can
continue to have fun for many years to come!
In addition to archery, rapier, rattan combat, an A&S
display, and a games table, the next Montengarde Bardic
Champion will be chosen at this event. Merchants are also
welcome. Finally, Her Excellency Wilma and the Serjeantry of
Montengarde will be holding classes and testing of new
applicants to the Guard. Please contact the Event Stewart for
further details or questions.
