Dirty Dozen Largess Tournament

Greetings Artisans of An Tir!

12th Night 2017 will host a Largess enhancing event popularly known as a Dirty Dozen Donation Derby!

This is an opportunity to show off any of your new or longtime favorite skills in a “theme and variations” demonstration. Making 12 of a same item or skill in various interpretations!

The “rules” for this derby are:

  • Entrants must create twelve items, suitable for Largess, and that are based on a single theme.

  • Entries must have a common element/theme (toys, hats, needle books, time period), and be complete within the entry (games must each include all elements, socks are in sets of two!)

  • Within the common element, the variation is in the hands of the artisan!

  • Variations on the theme/element need not be documentable, this is not an A&S competition! However, identification of your thoughts in creating your set of 12 elements, may be of interest to the populace!

  • Entries must be tagged and ready for gifting when submitted to the competition.

  • Items should not include heraldry.

  • Judging will be by the Populace, voting by token at the display table (in the A&S space).

  • The entry with the most tokens at the Final round of the Rapier tournament will be declared the winner. The creator of the winning entry will have the joy of selecting one of each of the other entries as their own; all remaining entries will be given to Largess.

  • Entries will be displayed in the A&S area, and can be turned in on Friday, from 6:00 to 8:00, and Saturday from 9:00 til 11:00, at the display table in the A&S area.

Costumers’ Guild

Bring your best costume for Royal Court--from hat to hose! Documentation not required, but encouraged. Sign up for a presentation time slot, beginning at 4pm in Cascade 12 meeting room. See details on the An Tir facebook page.

Display of Scrolls

There are so many beautiful scrolls that have been created by the scribes of this society.  Sadly, many are hidden away in individual homes and rarely seen by others than the recipients. It is time to bring them out into the light! We have a secured room just for the display of these beautiful scrolls and are requesting them of you.

Specifically, we would like to display those handed out to new branches as they are created, scrolls from other kingdoms and those created more than twenty years ago. If you will be able to bring your scroll we ask that you please notify Ciar ingen Fhiachnach (brandy.stier (at) gmail (dot) com) with the dimensions of your scroll so that we may set space aside to properly display these examples of scribal art.

Grand Ball

Celestial Objects - Things of the Heavens

In honor of Their Royal Highnesses, whose devices both include "stars", please bend your imagination to create a mask and/or costume to celebrate all things of the Heavens: sun, moon, stars, aurora borealis, anything you can imagine up in the sky. All are welcome to participate with or without themed mask or costume.

  • 1st Set (- Pavan - Queens Alman (for mask/costume judging) - Branles: Official, Pinagay, etc. - Gresley (t/b/d - Orange or Green Gynger?) - Petit Riens - New Boe Peep - Gathering Peascods)

  • Announcement of costume/mask winners

  • Performance (Chiara Stella) – for those that know it

  • 2nd Set (- Ly Bens D - Gelosia - Amoroso - Contrapasso Nuovo  (part 1 only) - Villanella - Hit or Misse - Goddesses)

  • Dancing can continue after the ball, if there are dancers and musicians interested in continuing.

Embellishers' Guild

If you are interested in Embellishment of any kind (embroidery, wood burning/carving, leather tooling, rock carving, metal working and more) come to the Embellishers' Guild meeting!  

Knights Auction

Sponsored by Sir Rodrekr

In the past fifteen years, An Tir’s Knights Auction has raised over $25,000 for various charities (Make a Wish Foundation, Camp Erin, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and more);  this year, funds will be given to RAINN.ORG

All items in the auction are either crafted by a member of Chivalry or sponsored by one. Past items have included lamp work beads, custom painted shield, hand sewn rag dolls, block printed fabric, and others. What will the Artisans of An Tir contribute this year?

Please contact Arcos Dearbhail (brynphalan (at) holdren-net (dot) us) with your donation information (Sponsor, Maker, Description, Approximate Value). Forms will be printed to display with the auction item.

All items must be pre-registered by January 2, 2017. Photos of completed or similar items are appreciated to aid in the displaying of items as well as posting in advance so that the populace can plan their auction budgets. Items must be at the auction tables no later than 10am Saturday January 14th. Unsold items may be claimed that evening or will be donated to Kingdom Largess. This is a silent auction - bidding begins on Saturday morning and continues until 6:30 Saturday evening.

Speed Dating

Like flushing toilets antibiotics, some things from our modern world make being in the middle ages a lot more fun. Do you ever wish you had someone to camp with or share a bottle of wine at feast with? Maybe you are tired of first dates rolling their eyes when you start talking about the black plagues’ effect on 16th century population in Europe. Have you tried Quick Courtship?” You'll meet other anachronists, face-to-face for several 6 minute “Pre-courtship conversations” We facilitate the whole thing. We even provide the ice breaker questions. There's no awkwardness, no pressure, no embarrassment just great fun! You give your match-making team your list of people you want to get in touch with and we compare it to the other people attendees lists. Then we email each guest a list of participants who would like to hear from them again! It’s absolutely no risk and we suspect it will be a lot of fun.

Queen's Rapier Championship

Fight for the honor of the Queen of An Tir. We are planning on a Sweet 16 format to be held Saturday afternoon. Lists open via pre-registration and during court break on Saturday.

YAFA Display

This display includes samples of the Tokens, as well as samples of the Achievement criteria. Information regarding how to sign up as a Family or as a Mentor will also be available.
