As we’re exiting yet another October heat-wave and enjoying a nice, cool day, it’s a great time to look towards our annual Harvest Revel and Barony Meeting at the Castle (still with PIE) next month.
The Harvest Revel will take place on Sunday, 19 November 2017 and again Count Byron and Countess Ariella are opening their home to us – the Castle (755 Stonegate Dr, Wexford, PA 15090 – map). There will be some changes to parking, so there will be further information coming with details about those changes as we get closer to the date.
Here’s the tentative schedule:
11:00 a.m. – Site Opens, Thrown Weapons Practice
12:00 p.m. – Pie Competition Opens
1:00 p.m. – Choir Performance
1:30 p.m. – Barony Meeting, immediately followed by a Business Meeting (all are invited to participate)
2:00 p.m. – Heavy Weapons/Rapier Practice
There will be the usual launching of the pumpkins towards the end of the day. So, bring a pumpkin and see it go “SPLAT” in glorious fashion. Only fresh pumpkins are allowed, no rotting ones as they are awful to try and clean up.
The schedule is still being confirmed and the final planning for the pie competition is still being done and we will be updating as things are confirmed. If you would like to do something like offer a short class or coordinate some largesse-making activities (or anything else), please contact Odriana at seneschal (at) debatablelands (dot) org. For those of you who are concerned about such things, it’s a bye week for the Steelers.
As usual, no garb required, unless you really want to wear garb. We will be happy to see you regardless of your attire.
If you’ve not yet been to the Castle, here is a link to Count Byron and Countess Ariella’s website for the Castle (as with most things, it’s even better in person). It’s a beautiful place and we are so fortunate that they let us hang out there.
If you’re on Facebook, please RSVP on the event page.
