and now for something completely different…
TWO DAYS of WAR PRACTICE
We have nixed the Pas D’Armes… instead, the Citadel is preparing in earnest for War. On Saturday we will take advantage of the beautiful grounds and manicured lawns of the lovely Lorretto Academy to practice broken field tactics and whatever else our Knight Marshall and Generals can devise. On Sunday we will continue war practice at Memorial Park, with open field tactics and bridge battles (fought on real stone bridges).
There are SHOWERS ON-SITE, so after Saturday war practice you can clean up and dress for court, dinner, and dancing. Satisfy that appetite you’ve worked up with a simple but hearty Persian feast, prepared by Lord Joaquin d’Alvarez. After dinner there will be dancing; we can’t have a hall this beautiful and not dance until last call.
SITE IS WET AFTER 5 PM. BYOB, and please drink responsibly.
Anyone in need of crash space please contact the autocrat.
There will be a silent auction to raise funds for the Kingdom Travel Fund (always a good cause, and in the interests of all of us. Donations are most welcome).
