Dear friends and family,
The time for CHOCOLATE, I mean The Barony of Wiesenfeuer’s annual Yule Revel is just around the corner, being Saturday December, 4th at camp DaKaNi in Oklahoma City, OK. This will be our Barony’s twentieth anniversary and we want to make it uniquely special. We have quite a few activities planned and hopefully have an event that everyone in the family can enjoy.
Our theme for this year’s Yule Revel is the celebration of our twentieth anniversary and, need I say it, CHOCOLATE.
The colors for the Yule season are red, green, black, and gold in honor of our great barony.
Merchants are as always welcome at our event… To coordinate merchant space please contact Anghared of Patrin Or at anghared.gwen at yahoo.com
We have two fun style tournaments planned for Yule Revel. For our chivalric fighters we will have a snowball tourney, feeling the name if nothing else is suitable for the season.
And for the rapier fighters, we will have a burning ship tourney. Fencers will be fighting on the deck of a burning ship which has gunpowder in it's cargo hold. Their objective is to dispose of their opponent, grab the treasure, and leap from the burning ship which explodes at an unknown time based on the desires of the Ladies of House Patrin Or before each match. To add complexity, each fighter will have 3 lives (including if they explode), first life gets single sword, second life gets to bring a rigid or non-rigid parrying device, and third life gets to bring two offensive weapons. The winner will be the person who collects the most treasure through the course of their bouts which will be recognized at conclusion of the fighting.
In correlation with the tournaments, House Patrin Or, will be hosting a ‘Death For Chocolate’ competition. A large basket of home baked chocolate goodies will be awarded to one fighter from each tourney who dies most gallantly (extravagantly) on the field.
Arts and Sciences: The theme for our arts and science championship this year will be The Barony’s Twentieth Year. Documentation is encourage, but not required, and our judging will be from the standard Kingdom judging forms.
Bardic: The format for the bardic championship is coming to you soon.
Subtleties Competition: the theme for this, of course, is chocolate.
Table Decorating Competition: The colors again are red, green, black, and gold, with the Barony of Wiesenfeuer being the theme. This is the Yule season, so tying the two together is what we are looking for.
Best Dressed Competition: Bring out your finest! We are looking for appropriate Yule garments in the colors of the season. We prefer the garments to have been made for the Yule season or at least within the last year.
