GOOD GENTLES ALL!  HEAR
MY WORDS!!!

Baron Enzio Bandinelli and Baroness Spike
Zoetaert of Madrone, eldest and grandest Barony in An Tir,
send most courteous greetings and invite the populace of the
Barony, Canton of Porte de l’Eau, College of Saint Bunstable, their
guests, neighbors and allies to a Grand Banquet in celebration
of the 15th century in The Low Countries!  (The site is
discreetly wet; adult beverages in period containers only, please.
Site demands require that NO HOME-BREWED ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES may be

We are planning a day of activities to amaze
and delight.  Our event staff is busily working with
instructors to prepare wonderful classes (yes, classes!! Dance
Class!  Period Table Manners!! Marginalia!!  And
More!!), a Speed Chess tournament, games, and a Pas-de-Faux to
entertain the populace as we wait for Court to begin.  What’s
that?  You like to dance?  We will indeed be dancing
after the Feast!   The festivities will culminate in feasting
on a menu prepared by the renowned Madrone Culinary Guild. 
The Guild is constructing a feast based on Ghent and Brussels circa
1500 AD.  What marvels will they bring to table for
Banquet?  Mouths water at the very thought!  See
