Oct. 26: Halloween-themed Revel.
Wear your best garb and accessorize with a mask, if you have one. Bring treats to share.
Bardic challenge: We want to hear your best spooky stories and songs. They can be period or period-ish, five minutes maximum for each performance. Keep subject matter PG. See our chatelaine Jaquelinne for details.
Cooks Challenge: Disguised Dishes: Bring a ‘disguised’ dish to the holiday: any dish parading as something it’s not. Bread bones, pies of black birds, hedgehogs of marzipan, sugar skulls- let your mind and your kitchen explore. See more details on the baronial Facebook page.
(Emails for all officers are listed on the officers page of the baronial website.)
