My point was the Kingdom of the West itself doesn't have feasts, 
since Collegia stopped having them regularly. As i mentioned in my 
first message, there *are* feasts in the Principalities and other 
branches of the kingdom.

White Shield is a Barony of Darkwood event, not a Kingdom of the West 
event. The Barony of Darkwood is a branch of the Principality of the 
Mists. Whether the menu is historically based or not depends on the 
head cook, it isn't always.

Aelf has been of invaluable assistance to me at a number of my 
feasts, which i have cooked at the Principality, Province, and Shire 
levels. He has washed dishes for many other cooks at those three 
levels and at barony and canton level feasts. He is a great guy and 
deserving of being baronized :-)

But the Kingdom of the West itself doesn't have any regular feasts. 
One may find a feast at a Collegium Occidentalis or may not. One may 
find a feast at Kingdom A&S or may not (so far 3 out of 11 years). 
While there may on rare occasions be a potluck gathering on the Eric, 
there are no actual feasts open to the populace at Crown Tourneys or 
Urtatim (that's err-tah-TEEM)
