Isn't that the SAME weekend we are already obligated to Sam Houston Folk Festival? The first weekend in May is the Folk Festival and we obligated to it months ago. It was just discussed again at our November Populace.

War of the Rams was awesome. Thanks to those from our Barony who helped sit gate for our cousins. It was much appreciated by them.
HE Pace fought in his third war now for the Barony and had a great time. He came home with only one war bruise! And lots of stories to tell. We hope everyone who went had a great time. Our Raven's Fort hospitality tent was a hit. We had a full house with people from all over eating our foodstuffs, sharing laughter and friendship. It was a great day for our Barony.
The talk of having a joint event with Stargate, Bordermarch and Loch Soilleir was firmed up on Sunday. We did decide to hold a joint Baronial together to free up the calendar and share the expense and responsibility of putting on an event . The date will be May 3-5, the usual date for Loch/Stargate Baronials. We are telling this date now so our friends that work in TDC can begin to look at the possibility of getting the date off from work. The site will be the Bordermarch site with the fighting occurring in the middle of the common camping area, no castle. More details will be available by our Yule Populace meeting. We do know that our Barony will be responsible for the archery part of the event. Our Barony will have the chance to make monies for our Barony in ways also having details to follow. We are very honored and excited to be included in this first time try of a joint event with our Southern Cousins. We will need everyone on board to make this happen and would like a good showing from our group to make it happen.
Speaking of Yule, we had an informal discussion about it at our Baronial encampment Friday night with all who graciously came to visit. It was decided to have our December Populace at Yule as has occurred in the past few years. This year we will have a 'campfire' Populace near our barn. At this time we will discuss our spring event date, brainstorm ideas about it and tell of the latest news and plans for the joint Baronial event in May. We want to hear from our Populace and utilize our talents and brains to see how we want to handle this try by the Southern area to relieve the calendar, how it will affect our group in the near future and how we will still use our dear Stones site as well. We have some ideas on this and want to hear yours.
We also decided to forgo the dessert contest this year and just have fun eating it all. We also will not do the Mongolian gift exchange. Those who wish can still bring a gift to exchange and we will draw numbers to exchange them, first come, first pick. Children can bring a child's gift to have a separate exchange as well.
So we will begin the fun at noon on Saturday, have a campfire Populace at 3, eat at 5 along with a short court, we still have some awards to give out!! Then we will follow with the gift exchange with campfire drumming and fun that evening. This will give time for our day tripping peoples to travel safely home before it gets too late for them. We will get a food list going soon. Be thinking about what food items you might like to bring. We usually have around 30 people.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at Yule.
With love and affection,
Pasquale Pace and Giovanna Lena Caronna
Baron and Baroness of Raven's Fort
