LION of ANSTEORRA, DEFENDER of the DREAM - Ivarr Runmagi

(That makes 11 Lions from Bjornsborg - Yay us! - See below note about tshirts.)

Please forgive any omissions or mis-spellings.

Thank you to all who participated.  Thank you to TRM Ulsted and Ebergardis for gracing us with their attendance.  Without guests who want to play the game we set up, the tournament and event itself would be a much sadder place.  However, without the help of all those who worked from planning the event all the way through to the debriefings and final storage unit visit, we could not have hosted the event at all.  From brand new members to old Lions to guests, many people, too many to name, had a hand in the wonderful event we hosted for you, Ansteorra.

Thank you.
