 Greetings my fellow Sheep Bandits,
Here are a few snippets from a Gleann Abhann chat site concerning Autumn
As you can see, they have falsely accused Bordermarch of ripping off
their Ram.
Bordermarch might be a small barony, but it's populace has been tempered
by the 
constant vigilance it maintains protecting our Kingdom  from those that
dare use us as a portal into the Sable Motherland we call Ansteorra.
The Ram likes it here in Bordermarch, I think we'll keep it!

Re: Bordermarch Autumn Melee's? 

I plan on going, as it is the group where I started in the SCA... It
is a freakin' awesome event! I encourage anyone who loves a beautiful
site, great fighting on an amazing castle, awesome A&S, wonderfull
feasts and out of this world bardic to check out Autumn Melees. I
think it would be cool to get an idea of how any people are going.
Besidesm those Ansteorrans have something that belongs to us, and we
want it back...
