Stierbach Baronial Birthday
June 18, 2016
Barony of Stierbach
Parties and celebrations join communities together. Join us as the Barony of Stierbach celebrates its 18th birthday with fun, games, laughter, and food.
Martial Activities: Heavy Fighting; Rapier; Archery
Arts & Sciences Activities: 1. Dirty Dozen - Make 12 of anything that could possibly be given away as largesse (12 woven trims, 12 needle books, 12 cup covers, etc..) by our Baron and Baroness. Winner gets one of each and the rest go to the Barony. The main theme for this is Stierbach so feel free to use the colors and award heradlry of Stierbach, however, things generalized to Atlantia are also more than welcome. Documentation not required and the contest is anonymous.
2. Birthday! This competition is singular. The challenge is to include the birthday theme into whatever medieval A&S medium you choose. Documentation is highly encouraged.
3. Display. For those who would like to have their work displayed but not entered into a contest, there will also be a display.
4. We will also be having 3 A&S classes that will be turned in for University credit.
