Hare was a wonderfully busy day!
We were so happy to have been able to spend a fun filled day in Our Barony of Skraeling Althing this weekend. Well it was also a tad brisk, the rains subsided early and allowed all to enjoy the fresh air outside.
It having been a long time since the last gathering in the Barony, We held three separate courts to fit everything in. We were greatly pleased to recognize so many amazing persons throughout the day and send Their Excellencies Dafydd and Avelyn to their retirement with Our thanks for their service to the Barony and the Kingdom. We have the upmost faith in Their Excellencies Dubhessa and Joffr and know Our Eastern Barony is secure in their capable hands. And even though We split the business up as much as We could, afternoon court still ran a bit late!
We recognized the following persons in Our Courts:
• Morag Taylor – Crucible
• Avelyn of Wexcombe of Great Bedwyn – Court Barony
• Dafydd ap Alan – Court Barony
• Giana Gabriella Da Milano – Crucible
• Brandi of Petrea Thule – AoA
• Christoffe Baldricson – Scarlet Banner
• Nikolai Leeman – Scarlet Banner
• Petra of Septentria – Wain
• Dafydd ap Alan – Wain
• Mjoll Úlfsdóttir - Crucible
• Estienne de Nantes – Crucible
• Estienne de Nantes – Maiden’s Heart
We are greatly pleased to have welcomed Mistress Inge of Sten Mark to Our Order of the Laurel for her music that is an inspiration to so many, Master Giovanni d’Enzinas to the Order of the Laurel for his research in the art of fence and period fashions and Dame Helen of Greyfells to the Order of the Pelican whose service to the Kingdom is unwavering.
We are certain Dame Helen is correct in that she is quite possibly the longest vigilant in Ealdormere history, her boon being begged at Feast of the Hare in the before times over two years ago!
To Breyla and Baldric, it was a wonderful day and we are so very thankful to you and your event staff for such a beautiful event! You all truly went above and beyond and hosted a fabulous day on the river.
A special thank you to Their Excellencies Ramshaven once again for their gift of bacon, this time a heart healthy version!
King Rattanicus and Queen Isabel
