For those of you who were not in attendance
during evening court at May Faire, there is news that some may find
shocking and will, hopefully, rally many to the defense of Glymm
As you probably know, Johann and I stepped up as Baron and
of Glymm Mere at May Faire. We inherited a healthy Barony
and an amazing populace. We also feel that we were warmly welcomed
by our neighboring cousins. Well….for the most part.
We received great
words of wisdom and lovely gifts from the visiting
Barons and Baronesses. The Barony
of Blatha An Oir had other words for us, however. As we were being
given gifts with one hand, we were being challenged by the other.
There was an accusation of theft of honey! A challenge and an
accusation within mere moments of our investiture!!
We, Baron Johann and Baroness Francisca would
request a call to arms. It appears the wish for peace in our time
is not to be. So, join with us and the Beevarian Company in
defending our honor- and our honey.
HONEY WAR IS ON!!!!!
So say we,
Baron Johann Matheusson and Baroness Francisca

This event couldn’t happen without all of our wonderful
volunteers! For each half hour of volunteer work you do you will
receive a coin. Drop it in the box of the barony you are
supporting. The barony who has the most coins before court
evening will be awarded the war points!
Rapier - 8 points
#1: Roving tourney - (possibly with sherrif's if enough
people) Each fighter (does His Excellency have the coins he was
talking about?) has 5 tokens, they challenge eachother for the
tokens when they find eachother (if the sherrif catches them
fighting then they lose 2 tokens if they run out they are out of
the tourney), each fighter has to have a second (either one of the
fighters or someone else who will act as their "marshal"), the
winner will be the one with the most tokens at the end of two
hours; This will be best on saturday afternoon
#2: Raid the Sheep Melee Scenario- In this we will
have volunteer "sheep" from the fighters; these persons will act as
rebellious sheep from the other side; These sheep are trying to
escape and be taken back by their "owners" and the
raiding party is attempting to take them back to their "home base"
to sell and make money; the buyer can "haggle" the price;
this will be done in two rounds one for each side
timed at 20 min; the winner is the team with the most coin at the
end of their time 7
#3: Blood of Heroes Scenario

Presentation: Is the brew in a period looking container or an
overly modern one? If it’s in a modern container,
document why you chose that container over a more period one.
Documentation: At the very least, what is it, who made it and
a simple list of ingredients (don’t give us the recipe!
That’s your secret). Is the recipe period, how long did
it take to make, anything interesting you learned, etc.
