At populace last evening, we announced that Winterkingdom will be held at
the Creek County Fairgrounds.  :)  The site has a huge indoor arena
attached so we'll be able to have numerous marshall classes of all fighting
types.  It also has two separate cement floor areas, in the
climate-controlled space, with water spigots every 10 feet or so.  This
will let us have space for any "messy" classes.  It will also give a safe
place for any forge classes or lampwork classes.

We also announced our autocrats - Lady Jutte Vonderberg and HL Annais de
St. Montgomerie.  :)

The date for Winterkingdom is January 31st, 2015.

We are still accepting feast bids.

Please let me know if there are any more questions.

 “Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are
just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them,
for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will
bring the others back.”

― Heraclitus
