Greetings one and all,

    This past weekend the Central Region was proud to host the Kingdom at
our 12th night celebration.  We had many wonderful "events" during the day
and evening. There were sounds of children's laughter throughout the day and
tears of joy when beloved friends were recognized in court. The Kingdom has
a new Premier Bard, and the competition was a blessing to behold. Also there
were vigils for two of Ansteorra's finest, Sir Karl and Duchess Vanessa.
There was even a delicious feast served throughout the day.  All in all it
was a day that will not soon pass from our memories.
