Sat January 25th
Free event for Kingdom Curia and Order Mettings.
Updates for the “Un” Event hosted by the Shire of Stormsport on January 25th, 2014. This event is FREE! The announcement that was published in the Aestel was submitted prior to the final decision on the cost and for this I do apologize. The event is also garb optional.
There will be a silent auction to benefit the Kingdom, so clean out your closets, workshops, sewing rooms, kitchens, etc and donate. Not only are goods accepted so are your services, for example a custom made tunic, a piece of leather work, an embroidered piece or even cooking for someone at Pennsic. If you have a specific skill set and are going to donate your services please bring an example of your work for the populace to see and place bids on. There will also be a swap meet.
Lunch will be provided and is being catered by the Hotel that the event is being held at. No outside food is permitted. However there will be a separate room for deserts and ask that everyone bring something to share. Keep in mind that this will be one of the quest rooms and there will be minimal refrigeration and plugs for heating.
The site opens at 9am with the schedule as follows:
10:30am – 1:00pm Curia then a round table meeting
12:30pm – 1:00pm Meeting of the Golden Lance
1:00pm – 2:00pm Meetings of the Order of the Fluer and the Order of the White Scarf

There will be an Equestrian meeting at 11:00am and if any other groups would like to hold a meeting please let the autocrat know so I can add you into the schedule.
