Greetings and Salutations Gentle Folk of Ansteorra

On June 26th, the annual Midsummers Ball will be held with all the 
Grandeur and Elegance that the Fairies can muster!  The Canton of 
Lindenwood cordially invites you to come and celebrate, dance and 
wear your finest!

The theme for this years event is "The Enchanted Forest" and it is 
rumored that once again the faerie folk and other creatures of magic 
will abound, bringing their laughter, music and dancing to celebrate 
and revel with the people of Ansteorra.

Master Avatar has agreed to complete the beauty of this celebration 
with live music for the dancing, and Lord Phillip will again share 
with us his talent for teaching and leading the dances throughout the 

Master Petruccio will be creating the side board repast.  Please 
bring you feast ware so that you may partake of these delicacies.

Some of the contests include:

Dessert Subtleties
Best Middle Easter Dance Performance 
Best Bardic Performance (Must relate to the event theme)
Best Wings Male & Female
Most creative child's costume Male & Female
A Quest - You must seek knowledge and approval from the "Willow" Tree

Everyone is encouraged to dress in their finest courtly attire.  For 
those of you who wish to, this is an excellent opportunity to dress 
in a more "magical fashion" in keeping with the theme of the event.  
Elves, fairies, dragons, sprites, and other friendly creatures of 
mythos are all invited and encouraged.
