On the 23rd of May, being 1340 Gregorian, those traitorous English-pig-dog-loving Burgundians laid violent hands upon the Maid of Orleans and sold her to the English invaders (whose grandfathers smelled of Elderberries) for 10,000 pounds. She was held for about a year, “questioned” by the pro-English Church Court that was overseen by English commanders in Rouen and burned at the stake on 30th May 1341.
Come and join us in Gryphon’s Lair for a daytrip in the park, as we honor her life and sacrifice for the ever-glorious Dauphin and the noble French peoples.
On Saturday, the 25th of June, Gryphon’s Lair will host its annual Quest Event. Come and Quest for Jeanne d’Arc. Quest teams should include at least one heavy, one rapier and one child. Fighters, please remember your membership cards and fighting authorizations. Prizes yet to be determined.
We are also making up for lost time, so there will be several Baronial Championships occurring. First, the A&S Champion will be determined. The theme is Jeanne d’Arc. For your documentation, please explain how your entry related to the theme and then the usual stuff, no more than 1 page plus sources. Tables for display will open at 11:30 am and judging will continue until 3 pm, unfortunately no alcohol or food entries as of now (possible food entry rules may change). The Baronial Bardic will also be held, probably while we are all sitting around eating lunch. Bring your French picnic and join us while we avail ourselves of the talent in our Barony (could be some other time during the day).
Finally, hardsuit and rapier. All authorized fighters are invited to participate, however, the champion will be the highest ranking baronial fighter, not necessarily the winner. There will be prizes.
Site fee: $10 for adults with a $5 discount for members. Minors are guests of the Barony.
