>Candlemas approaches but the Black Death rages like a wildfire across 
>countryside, emptying village and city alike.  Skulls and shrouds and 
>mass graves have become commonplace.  'Tis indeed a dread time.  How 
>can Bryn Gwlad, in good conscience, celebrate Candlemas-a time of 
>purification and rebirth?  
>How can we not?  Death is but a phase in the great cycle of life.  Join 
>us then as we confront Death in all his terror and glory.  We will 
>and play the day away in celebration of the continuance of life.  
>though, Death himself knows of our plans and is likely to appear.  Come 
>then in masks or fully costumed to fool the Reaper, for his touch is 
>fatal (though legend has it Death will occasionally strike a bargain).  
>Feast throughout the afternoon and into the early evening on a 
>sideboard-provided by our own Clarissa di Firenze-that is guaranteed to 
>be to die for. Pork roasts, sausages, meat pies, dumplings, stuffed 
>mushrooms, roasted vegetables, cheesecakes, candies, and fruits is just 
>partial list of the sumptuous spread we will regale you with.  Dance 
>yourself to death, enjoy theatrics that are sure to slay you, or simply 
>hang out with the dead in the Purgatory Lounge. Splendiferous prizes 
>be awarded for the Best Mask, Best Costume, Best Death, and of course, 
>Best Deal with Death.  
>We are anticipating an offering of classes, and there will be ongoing 
>children's activities throughout the day.Event fee (includes site and 
>sideboard-essentially an all-day feast running from 2:00 til 7:00) 
>$15.00.Make checks payable to Barony of Bryn Gwlad, SCA Inc.
