Alas, the Pirates ships are fading fast from the
horizon. They are being chased away by the new
Captians of the Elfsea Star whom were chosen at Elfsea
Spring Faire last weekend.

And let us mourn the sad passing of Gimli Savson of
the Miscreants. Shortly after signing his name to the
heavy list, he was shot down by a stray rubber band
bullet from a fencers gun. Many saw him surrender
quickly to Davy Jones and friends toasted his passing
with his reward.
Thanks to Lady Brenna MacDonald there are some
wonderful pictures, especially of the crest
tournament, which was a site to behold. I dont think
my memories of Rudolph the Red-noise Reindeer will
ever be the same again.
THANK YOU to the judges of the Bardic and A&S
competitions. Dona Antonia, Maggie MacPherson,
Mistress Stella, HL Lyonette, & HE Ameline du Bois
