Feast of Fools

February 22, 2014

Kootenai, Shoshone, Benwah Counties Idaho

Autocrat: Angus de Gournay & Tabitha de Gourney device7308OP


It is time to shake off the chill of winter and join with friends for a day of revelry and feasting.  Please join the Canton of Silverhart on February 22, 2014 for our annual winter Feast of Fools!  In keeping with this tradition there will be a Lord and Lady of Misrule declared.  Enjoy a day of merriment!

There will be heavy fighting and a rapier tourney.  Armor inspection will be at 11:30 AM with fighting to follow as soon as inspections are done.  There will also be an arts & science populace choice competition "A&S Gone Wrong" (bring your best A&S misadventure), and a food competition producing "Subtleties" (a food or dessert item disguised to appears as something completely different).  We will wrap up the event with a feast of merriment with bardic as our entertainment!

To keep you entertained for the day:

*  5 competitions; heavy, rapier, A & S, food, and games with the entry fee for each competition being a contribution of canned food collected for the Coeur d'Alene Food Bank.

*  Populace choice competitions in A&S (objects and food)

*  Court dancing with Mistress Juliana 

*  An evening court

*  A feast of merriment (with Bardic as our entertainment)

The feast hall can only hold 100 so please pre-register for the feast ASAP by emailing with the number of gentles and first names of each in your party.

Update: As of 2/17 we are booked for the feast, and taking wait list names.

When you register you will get an email confirmation back within 48 hours.  If you do not get a confirmation back please recontact to confirm!

The Canton is providing the meat for the feast and the populace in attendance is asked to bring a potluck side dish that will feed 5-10 to accompany the feast.

Pot luck dishes by modern last name:

**A-G bring salads**

**H-P bring side dishes**

**Q-Z bring desserts**

In keeping with our Feast of Fools theme, we will start by having dessert first!

PLEASE be sure to note if your food dish contains anything others may be allergic to...we will be providing materials onsite to write the notes. We have some people with extreme food allergies so this is important.

There will be a silent auction table at this event, with all funds raised going toward biffies at Sgts.

Be sure to bring some extra small bills for the "pie in the face" fundraiser, where various victims (including our most esteemed "knight to be" Baron Lars) are graciously being pressed into service to help raise money for the Silverhart dragonwing.
