EVENT STEWARD: Chingis, (James Sayer jamessayer333 at gmail.com)
"If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear."
---Shakespeare, Midsummers Night's Dream
Come wander into the long house of irish poets, where the Sidhe and faeries were rumored to walk, bringing your tales of the other world as we share an Irish Samhain and celebrate the culture of our Honoree Mistress Muireann. Join us for food, music, games, as well as the Three Mountains Arts and Sciences competition, and an evening of Celtic revelry as we quench the fires of the old year and light the fires of the new Irish style..
A&S COMPETITION The Arts and Sciences competition begins with an Invocation court at 10 and closes by 3:30
FOOD: Will be available throughout the day. Travel the harvest festivals around the wold from East to West throughout the day with several repasts.
GAMES & FUN: More details to come. A Masque would seem to be in order for the dance of the fairies.
SILENT AUCTION: Come donate items of SCA interest to the silent auction or bid on items from 10:30 - 4 during the day. Auction will close before final dinner course. We can take cash or local check, or by arrangement paypal.
SITE : discreetly wet site (period containers only, no beer or wine bottles on the tables or in the trash please). No facilities for feastware washing so be prepared to scrape your plates and bag them for clean up at home.
COURT: Time TBA soon. There is rumor that Their Excellencies, with the help of the fae, might be making a decision on next year's Honor Feast Awardee. Come to court to find out!
CLEAN UP around 9. Tables, chairs, and décor need to come down and be removed and the fairies are not known to be great helpers in this department. We ask our human brothers and sisters to help so that we can be done quickly. The kitchen could use helpers too! Plan to stay an extra 30 minutes to help please.

(includes site fee and food all day),
$17 for members (includes site fee and food all day)
YOUTH 8-17: $5 food fee (site fee is waived)
