Greetings to Ansteorra.

It’s been a couple of weeks since the Pilgrimage to St. Adalbert’s, and I’m
mostly rested up.  I want to extend my thanks to all the gentles who braved the
wilds of Ansteorra to go on pilgrimage.

The Static arts competition was won by Lady Kateline de Lys.
The Performance arts competition was won by Lord Bersi Ormstuga.

Thanks go to all the artisans, particularly because all of the pieces were on
topic(!) and to the judges.

The captain of the winning rapier melee team was Lady Catalina Ana de Salamanca.
The captain of the winning armored melee team was Centurion Kael.

Thanks to all the fighters who came to fight and to the nuns who resurrected
them with ‘holy’ water during the last, resurrection battle.  My apologies to
the heavy fighters for not setting out a ‘hire’ chest as I had promised – bad

The winner of the Thrown Weapons competition was Leif Ollison.  Thanks to all
who participated.

I hope all those who went on the Shrine Tour enjoyed themselves.

EVENT STAFF THANKS – my apologies if I’ve left someone out:
