The Sable Lions take their rightful place at the head of the pride of An Tir, in the fullness of their youth and strength. They look from the mount of leadership over the savannah that is theirs, at the flourishing herds, the strong and well-fed members of the pride, and they are pleased with what they see.

Yet, being wise as well as mighty, they foresee a day when the sun shall set on their reign, and, wishing that the pride of An Tir retain its strength and glory, they act to ensure the pride's future.

Thus have they decreed that, on the weekend of the 18th of May, Anno Societatis LIII, being in the Gregorian 2018, in the lands of the Shires of Ramsgaard and Krakafjord, those lions who would vie to take their place upon the mount of leadership shall gather and meet in honourable combat, the victors of which shall win the right to succeed Their Majesties upon the Lion Thrones, at such time as the sun sets on the current reign.

Their Majesties invite all those within their lands to come to the meeting place, to witness this mighty contest of arms, to take joy in this event, to compete in other activities, andto revel and bask in Their Leonine glory.

So come, pride of An Tir, to the meeting place, being the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds, 481 5th Ave SW, Salmon Arm, BC V1E 1V4, Canada, and witness the epic clash of fang and claw.

The head of the Event Steward team is the renowned HL Conn McRoy, who may be contacted via email at conn_mcroy(at)hotmail(dot)com.

Dirty Dozen Donation Derby

Greetings! There will be a Dirty Donation Derby held at May Crown this year. These competitions are a great way to help your Kingdom in a fun and personal way. All donations are greatly appreciated and much needed.

The Dirty Dozen Donation Derby was created to encourage the creation of Largess through friendly competition. Entrants create 12 items; the theme is up to the entrant. Remember that these items will be gifted as largesse, so while a dozen scissor cases would qualify, a dozen hand knit socks would only be 6 largesse items.

The items need not be identical, just related in some way. Examples of past entries include needle-books, hats from different (or the same) period(s), dolls, earrings, rings, beads, children's toys, game sets, spindles, bobbins, sewing kits, pouches... the list goes on and on!

RULES

  • Each entry must contain 12 items. You may enter more than once, but please make each entry a different type of item.
  • You may enter as a group, just remember that the items should all be related in some way.
  • Documentation is not necessary, but it needs to be an item usable in the SCA.
  • Item should be handmade (purchased items that are altered/painted are allowed).
  • Each item must be tagged in such a way that the tags wont get separated from the item (no loose cards please). Include your name and local group information on your tag. Some additional information about the item is nice as well.

VOTING
Voting shall be popular vote. There will also be a Majesties' choice.

PRIZE
The winner by vote shall receive their pick of one item from each of the other contestants, up to 12 items. Their Majesties choice shall receive an item of their choosing.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE REST?
The remaining Largess items shall be gifted to Their Majesties to share with others the talent and bounty of our artisans.

For more information, contact Dame Arianna Freemont arianna_freemont(at)shaw(dot)ca.
