Unto my dear ladies of the Barony and Western Region,
Twelfth Night is fast approaching, and as my lord-husband is stewarding this year, I have
the distinct privelege of knowing well in advance the workings of that much-awaited day.
As we've done in the past, this year's tournament will be one of chivalry and courtesy.
The victors of the tournaments will be chosen by a ladies gallery - made up of as many
from the barony/region as wish to participate. Depending on the number of entrants, the
ladies gallery will choose three champions of the day for both the chivalric and rapier
lists. So, to that end, we would request that all ladies in the barony/region please
purchase 6 small handheld items. These do not have to be anything extravagent by any
means; we just want a lot of small trinkets to fill the baskets for those chosen.

Here are some suggestions. Six of each purchased or crafted, and please feel free to
include your name on the item so the champions will know who has given them such lovely
items. Also, remember that the entrants, being chivalrous, should be attaining these
baskets in honour of their lady, so include things for men, women or that both can share.
Oh, and please post back what you are willing to contribute so we don't have a basket of
20 packages of gingerbread. ;o)
Gingerbread (a few cookies in a little bag)
Bag or box of nuts (spiced or otherwise)
Small bottle of cordial
packet of stationery
