Yule Feast

Autocrat: Bessetta Wallace

Glymm Mere Yule Feast                                          

Barony of Glymm Mere

December 14th, 2013


For months there have been whispers of a strange creature roaming the wild places of our fair lands. To arms, and the hunt, brave souls and would-be Champions of Glymm Mere! Our Baron and Baroness call you to present your skills. Yule will play host to our A&S Championship and the Glymm Mere Bardic Championship and our traditional Brewing Championship.  The day will be packed full of prize tournaments, contests (including our popular dessert contest), games and fun for all ages. As the day grows short and evening arrives...our populace and friends draw nigh to witness our Serjeantry candidates present their letters of intent to Her Excellency. Then, tempted as we have been by the heavenly aromas of Brother Michael's kitchen, we shall feast on the bounty of the land and prizes of the hunt. Join us as we celebrate the talents in the Barony of Glymm Mere and the camaraderie of the feast season. Feast space is limited; reserve your space early.
