Their Majesties have asked the Gazette to share the following with the populace:
Unto the Good Gentles of Sylvan Æthelmearc do King Byron and Queen Ariella send Fond Greetings!
Summer has come to Our Sylvan lands, and with it a string of joyful events. In the month of July, We shall be traveling to Pax Interruptus, St. Swithin’s Bog 3-Day Celebration, and, at the very end of the month, the Pennsic War will begin with Land Grab on the final weekend of July.
It is Our goal to set up Our Royal camp on the Sunday of Land Grab (July 31). We will be working from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and We ask that all the people of AEthelmearc who are available that weekend spend an hour or two helping Us to make the Royal encampment an inviting and enjoyable place. Many hands make light work! Bring your friends! Bring your campmates!
At the end of War, We will tear down the pavilions and tents, probably on Saturday morning.
The Wild Hunt for fencing has begun! Seek out the strongest fencers in our Kingdom and challenge them to a pass or two. Report your wins at TheWildHunt1@yahoo.com. We remind you that We are each worth 5 points – come and get Us!
We extend a hearty Vivant to the new Kingdom champions who distinguished themselves in June:
- Lord Jacob Martinson (Rapier)
- Takamatsu Gentarou Yoshitaka-dono (Archery)
- Baroness Amelia Soteria (Thrown Weapons)
- THL Aaliz de Gant (King’s Equestrian)
- THL Maeve Ni Siurtain (Queen’s Equestrian)
- El Tigre (Youth Combat)
- Duke Timothy of Arindale (Shield of Chivalry)
Yours In Service to the Dream,
Byron and Ariella
King and Queen of Sylvan Æthelmearc
