It is time to shake off the chill of winter and join
with friends for a day of revelry and feasting.  Please join
the Canton of Silverhart on February 18, 2012 for our annual winter
feast – Fimbulvinter!  The theme of the day will be
“Feast of Fools!”  In keeping with this tradition
there will be a Lord and Lady of Misrule declared.  Enjoy a
day of merriment! 

There will be heavy fighting outside for those hearty
souls who wish to brave the weather and rapier inside, complete
with a tavern brawl.  Armor inspection will be at 11 AM with
fighting to follow as soon as inspections are done.  There
will also be an arts & science populace choice competition, and
an A&S food competition producing “Subtleties” (A food or
dessert item disguised to appears as something completely
different).  Immediately following fighting, we will hold “The
Peer & the Pie Hole”, with Baron Caieth and Sir Jorg as our
willing victims in a fundraiser ($5 per pie) for the baronial
travel fund.  Baronial Polling Q&A and Court will follow
dancing and we will wrap up the event with a feast of merriment
with bardic as our entertainment!

 

To keep you entertained and enthralled:

*  5 championship competitions heavy, rapier, A
& S, food, and games with the entry fee for each competition
being a contribution of canned food collected for the Coeur d’Alene
Food Bank. 

*  Populace choice competitions in A&S
(objects and food)

*  Court dancing

*  Bardic competition

*  An evening court

*  A feast of merriment

that will feed 5-10 to accompany the feast.
