April 2nd Practice Thanks and Congratulations!

Hello Debatable Lands! Salve Accolens!

Thank you to those that attended our large practice in Boyce Park on April 2nd! In particular, thank you to King Gareth and Queen Juliana, who kindly requested the practice, so as to hold Their Court to make up for the one the plague drove in January. Thank you, too, to Prince Byron and Princess Ariella, and King Ioannes of the East.

I’d like to thank the staff and activity coordinators of the day:
