The Lost Days of Gregory XIII: A
celebration of the unfinished & the
lost                   

Incipient Canton of
Kaldor

 Kaldor invites you to come and celebrate lost time and
the unfinished project with us.  In 1582 Pope Gregory
XIII of Gregorian Calendar fame, instituted the correction to
the Julian calendar that eliminated 10 days to allow the
solar calendar to once more align with the civil
calendar.  In honor of those lost days we present a
lighthearted day-long celebration of lost things, unfinished
projects and the ability to laugh in the face of time.

 We will be celebrating our lost days with:


  • An Unfinished Arts and Sciences Display
    and Competition & a second Barely
    Finished A&S Competition


  • “Recipes for the Poppa” Potluck contribution Competition
    -using
    recipes from the tables of the Popes –Recipes
    available from autocrat starting August 15


  •  “Gregorian Chant-a-thon” -Dinner entertainment…our
    challenge to
    bards and humorists to create a Chant in a Gregorian
    Style to
    entertain the Feasters.  Written only  as well
    as the more challenging Performed categories will be
    encouraged.  Themes of Italy, SCA, time, the barony,
    the Canton, Gregory, calendars, gardens or fall are all
    encouraged.


  • “Don’t be unfinished Masque making” – Class and craft table
    for masque making to prepare for the Baronial Autumn Masque
    later in October.

    themed treasure hunt.  Read up on your calendar
    history for extra help with this one!

    unfinished SCA aspects on themes like costume, heraldry,

    sense of humor, your unfinished projects, and your Medieval
    Calendar trivia.
