As Spring heralds the joys of Summer, Appledore calls forth
all good friends, present, past, and future to join us
for Midsummer in the Hollow. This event will be the
venue for the Appledore Championship, Scholars of
St. Thomas Aquinas, and the annual Feast of
Fellowship.

Appledore’s Championship …
seeks a well rounded Champion. Candidates will be
challenged to accumulate points by competing in all or some
of a variety of contests. This year’s theme
is; The Siege!

For AS 43, the Appledore Championship categories are
determined to be: 

Bardic


a song or poem to lift spirits during the Siege, or
perhaps to taunt the barbarians at the gate?

Science


can you prepare a dish for your Lord from the mean
pickings of the almost bare larder?

Art


is your dish a feast for the eyes as well as the
palate?

Archery


can you pick off the enemies half hidden in the
wood?

Armoured


how long can you defend the parapet against the
barbarians scaling the wall?

Rapier


how long can you hold the postern passage to keep
invaders from the gate house?

Scholars of St. Thomas Aquinas

is a persona development challenge for male personas. The
purpose of Scholars is to foster knowledge of the lives of
men in the Middle Ages. Prospective candidates must enter 10
categories; 7 are required; Persona
Creation, Calligraphy/Correspondence, Costuming, Daily
life/Livelihood, Handcraft, Skills/Scholarly
Pursuits, and Courtesy & Etiquette. 3 of the
Optional categories must be chosen; Dancing, Games
&
Pastimes, Bardic/Performance, Food, Habitat, Survival
Techniques.
