Subject: [Hellsgate] Hotter Than HellsGate Event Aug 13 in Salado

Greetings once more the lists!  It has been brought to my attention by Lord
Liam that I may have offended the populace by my posting :Hotter than Hell:
instead of "Hotter Than HellsGate".  Please accept my apologies at this time
for the offense.  It has never been my intention to offend any of you in
this manner and have
made the immediate correction.    This being said........  ...........the
ground shakes the hot wrot iron gates with the thundering
arrival of an advanced party of fierce fighters, artisans, spoon armed cooks
 accompanied by the pounding of drums and musical cadences................
Your humble servants of the Stronghold of Hell's Gate, for the the joy and
brotherhood of the Stellar Kingdom of Ansteorra, will host the beating of
the heat, Hotter Than HellsGate (in Salado) August 13th 2011.     This event
will be a HOT event, nay a Hotter Than HellsGate event! This
event will leave the rest smoking, burning, yearning for more.....and yes
Sweaty sweaty WET and Steamy! This event will be for the bravest, most
courageous, the... Stickiest... Sweaters, the slipperiest swords, the most
talented sweat towel makers and weavers, the hardiest of drummers, and the
boldest young minds who believe they too have what it takes to hold back the
cursed chaos, the most horrible of hordes, the most un noble of souls, as
only those with the strength of character can hold fast the horrible hot
gate of the most feared and untamed.    Be ye weak of heart, the Victors of
Hells Gate have the skill, the chivalry,
and the nobility to protect you, aid, and keep you safe, for Hell's Gate is
a hardened hot and daunting service that will test the very depths of
commitment and... Attention to skill that has ever been presented to mankind
Hot and fiery as the task is, through the fire, the truest and most noble of
character, the purest of intent, the strongest of faith, will find
themselves transformed!   With the greatest of courage and to the service of
our brilliant kingdom, I
am ever pleased to announce:   Lady Helena of the Incipient Stronghold of
Hell's Gate will ice the heat as
Heavy Marshal  Lady Brigit of the Incipient Stronghold of Hell's Gate at her
side as List Mistress  Don Dore of the Barony of Bryn Gwald will skewer the
sweat at Rapier Marshall  Mistress Melicina of the Incipient Stronghold of
Hell's Gate nurtures the most beautiful of flames for a colorful Arts and
Sciences Competition  Lady Kat of the Incipient Stronghold of Hell's Gate
feeds the flames a middle eastern palate of perfect delights  Lady Johanna
of the Incipient Stronghold of Hell's Gate teaches the embers to flame in
the art of Kumihimo braiding all while she organizes the day full of Arts
and Science classes to learn and enlighten the embers of the soul.  Master
Arian whose passion for fiery fashion sense will direct how to flame your
steed with a horse capirison.  Young CJ will enlighten those who new cover
with a directive on the making of Danish tunic!  Arian who travels the
Kingdom from afar arrives to light the embers of flame to the art of Stick

battle analysis and strategy of one of the most horrendous and trying wars
of the period.  The young embers of the Kingdom will be well mentored and

Lord Ioannes of the Stronghold of Hell's Gate will with the grace of the
most captivating of word, Herald their Excellencies pleasure and presence.
Lord Goldwerde will host the beauty of the Bardic competition for the palate
of the musical and elegant mind.     And I, Aubeline, will have the the spit
of the dragon to snuff the fires
that would consume the good and gracious peoples who have answered the call
to join our humble and fortified Stronghold where champions will prevail as
the Phoenix from the ashes here at the Hell's Gate.    Alas, I come to you
people with an open and needing heart. Thus, who will
listen and answer the call for   Water Bearers to offer liquid that will
quench the most parched of our noble
fighters and supporters?  Teachers to bring skill and technique to those who
know the art or science of the day would enrich?  Performers who will, at
the end of the battle and nourishing of the body would give to the weary
soul of those who ache for the emergence of laughter and tear?  Banners,
Chairs, and Tables for the field and hall where the weary may rest and
fearless may find sanctuary while awaiting our glorious and radiant
representatives of the crown?   As I am so often blinded by the great flames
we keep gated, if eyes such as
yours, the generous and most noble of souls in the Stronghold may so, with
reasonable and cooler vision see another need and would be, with haste,
communicate and inform, know your words will be welcomed and received to
enrich the lives of all who will soon bravely fight and support the holding
