Greetings to who are attending Pennsic!
[PLEASE forward this message to those who you know are camping with us as guests
and may not be included on our Baronial email lists so they may have all this
information as well.]
Tairdelbach and I are thrilled about this first Pennsic serving as Baron and
Baroness. We would like to pass along the information below so everyone is made
aware of activities and announcements for the Barony!
First off -- if you have NOT already given Sir Straum your tent size -- please
do so immediately!!! We use this information to layout the camp map so that
every tent fits properly. You can email him at (straum at comcast.net).
We are looking forward to continuing the tradition of Baronial (Drunken) Court
to be held on Wednesday evening (8/11). We will also be continuing "Cynnabar's
Got Talent" -- "THE" place to show off your, um, 'best' abilities! In the
interest of time, we ask that you please let either Tairdelbach or I know in
advance of court Wednesday evening if you wish to participate. We will not be
taken entries during the show itself -- so if you would like to perform -- just
let us know and you'll be added to the list!
BUT wait, there's more! As a new addition this year we'd like to encourage all
to eat together in camp and have "A Baronial Thanksgiving". We will be providing
'turkey' (though, it'll probably be chicken) and are encouraging all to
participate by coming early for potluck dinner with court to follow. Plan on
dinner at about 5:30. There are MANY things that can be easily cooked in camp or
quickly mixed-up from packages. Hannah will send an email with suggestions at a
later date. Sticking to the "Thanksgiving" theme is fun -- but not necessary.
Creativity is encouraged and could possibly be recognized in court later
(wink-wink). We plan on court immediately following, roughly about an hour after
dinner starts then the talent show to follow. In the past we've all traveled as
a group out towards shopping afterward for "Midnight Madness" Shopping night.
The other court you should know about is Midrealm court which is held on
Thursday night (8/12) in the barn. This starts at 8 pm -- and all are encouraged
to attend as well. Please be advised to bring a chair!
Goes with the courts above! If you have ideas on people you'd like to suggest to
receive either Baronial or Kingdom awards -- please write us to let us know! On
the Midrealm awards, should we deem it fit, we may also decide to write in a
recommendation for that person -- so we encourage you to let us know when you
If this is the first time you are attending Pennsic, We would be honored to give
you a quick tour. Please join Baroness Hannah and Baron Tairdelbach for a tour
of the highlights of Pennsic. It's a big place -- and there's lots to see and
do! We will leave from camp after Opening Ceremonies on Sunday (8/8) about noon
depending on how long Opening Ceremonies run. If you'd like to join, please let
us know so we can make sure we're all together before we leave.
RETAINERS AND GUARDS:
Their Majesties have asked that each Barony in the Midrealm provide service
through retaining for them or guarding the Midrealm Royal Encampment during
Pennsic. We have chosen Sunday (8/8) afternoon for these shifts so we can all
volunteer together. Please contact Baroness Hannah for a shift. You are
encouraged to 'find a buddy' to help make your shift go faster -- though it's
They will be as follows:
Guards -- 2 people per shift: Sunday 8/8: 2-3 pm., 3-4 pm, 5-6 pm
2 people per shift for Her Majesty, From 2-4 pm and from 4-6 pm
1 person per shift for His Majesty (though 2 would probably be fine, if we have
more people that would like to sign-up); From 2-4 pm and from 4-6 pm
If you have questions about what's required -- please just email Hannah. It is
not a difficult job, it can be a lot of fun, and you will get to see and be a
part of a lot of things that you may not typically be able to see!
Note to Peers: I'm told that you should have already received an email with an
electronic sign-up for the Peer on Duty position. I encourage you to choose
times that correspond to the dates that we've chosen (Middle Sunday afternoon)
-- and if they are not available...well, I just encourage you to volunteer as
Peer on Duty!
KNOWN WORLD BARONIAL CHAMPION TOURNAMENT:
It is the pleasure of the Barony of Cynnabar to help host this well looked
forward to event! This year the Tournament will be held on second Monday (8/9)
on the Red List from 1- 6 pm. We will need help with setting up shade flies and
setting out snacks and drinks for the fighters. If you'd like to help, please
let either of us know.
If you have any questions or concerns about these events, please let us know.
Thanks so very much and we look forward to the end of the month! (Sew on!)
Baron Tairdelbach and Baroness Hannah
