Good Ladies of the West,

I trust that all had a merry yule and look forward to the celebrations of the new year.
And with the approaching of the turn of the season we look forward to Bonwicke's Twelfth
Night. As it stands, we have less than a fortnight, and as we originated last year, we
will again be naming ladies' choice for the victors of the day's tournaments. I invite
all ladies to spend a portion of your day at the list field observing your favorites for
the Chivalric and Rapier Champions of the Argent Heart.

Last year, all ladies (and even some gentlemen) set about filling 6 baskets of trinkets
and largess to be presented to the 3 recipients in both the rapier and chivalric lists. I
ask
that you cosider your donations again this year.

Below is a list of suggestions to fill these baskets. Please take a look, and tell me
what you are bringing. Please remember that items for both men and women are
greatly appreciated. 

Thank you so much,
Baroness Oriana
Twelfth Night Co-Steward
