We came, we saw, and we played. Thanks to Lord Isard and Lord Thorgar for the Energetic, Fun and Informative Heavy Fighting Practice and Demonstration.

Our Feast For February
Our Second Feast of the Year was held on the 10th of February, 2001. The successful feast was amply attended by 27 gentles. This wonderful attendance included 6 smalls and 4 newbies.

Many dishes were in evidence. These included roast of fowl, stews, and gobbits of minced meats in exotic sauce. There were breads and many fine bakes of grains & noodles. To finish we had small crisp cakes (chocolate chip cookies). There was probably more than I have remembered as there were more dishes than I could sample.

The work on the baldricks was continued. Many were painted with our Ruantallan crest.

We sang a few familiar pieces of music both before and after the feast. We were taught a work song previously unknown to us and treated to a ballad by Lady Catherine and Brother (Lord) Liam.

Our Feast For January
Our First Feast of the Year was successfully held on the 28th of January, 2001. The feast was well attended by a marveleous total of 32 gentles. This grand attendance included 8 smalls and 5 newbies.

We were well Feasted on many dishes. These included roasts of fowl, boils of beef, gobbits of minced meats in exotic sauce and baked fishes. There were bakes of grains & noodles and many fine breads. We also had berries in cream, a tart of apples & berries and fresh & pickeled root vegetables. There was probably more than I have remembered as there were more dishes than I could sample.

The work on the long awaited baldricks was begun but the hoped for singing practice did not get under way. (The seamsters met the next Saturday at a member's home and finished the sewing.)
