Here begins the Court report of Their Excellencies, Brandubh and Hilderun, at Pennsic 48, AS 54. Kieran MacRae, Comet Pursuivant; Nichola Beese, second.

Their Excellencies welcomed everyone and bid them take their comfort.

Their Excellencies called upon Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope to provide an update to the fundraising effort currently going on at Pennsic.

Their Excellencies welcomed in Her Excellency of Carillion, a barony of the East Kingdom, and Pennsic neighbor, Baroness Tysha z Kieva, bearing gifts! It was noticed by Her Excellency that the Carillion campsite received assistance from our illustrious Excellencies earlier in the week, and in gratitude Baroness Tysha presented Brandubh and Hilderun with a tomato plant, basil plant, and oregano plants (colloquially referred to as 'pizza plants').

Their Excellencies then called Leah of the Debatable Lands before them so she could be presented an Iron Comet for her skills in horsemanship. Illumination by Ihtiaziz as Gani, Calligraphy by Ceindrich verch Elidir.

Their Excellencies wished THL Rufina Saavedra to come before them. They then called the Order of Copernicus to join them. For all that Rufina has done in support of the BMDL finding practice and meeting sites over the years so our activities could continue to run smoothly, she was inducted into this good order. Illumination by Owen Tegg, words by Gwendolyn the Graceful, calligraphy by Ceindrich verch Ilidir.

Their Excellencies next requested the presence of Katherine Fixis, also known as Vixxie of Clovenshield, to join them. She has been most helpful assisting in the organizing of parades that allow the BMDL to be seen by hundreds, and for this she was awarded a gold comet. Scroll by Nichola Beese.

Next Their Excellencies called for Alysoun of the Debatable Lands. Alysoun has been doing much service for the brewer's guild, serving as its mistress, hosting meetings, and sharing freely any and all of her findings (and concoctions!). For such service she was awarded a gold comet. Scroll by Antoinette de la Croix.

Their Excellencies called before them Duncan MacCoulagh, and presented him with his Golden Alce (unsigned) that was given in an earlier Kingdom Court. Their Excellencies also presented him with a Cometus Amicus for his skills in archery and being thrown weapons champion. Scroll by Tierrany Rose Orre.

Their Excellencies then called Meinolf Grimmson to come before them. For his skills in thrown weapons, being a marshal, and as thrown weapons champion winning the 7 Pearls round, he was awarded an iron comet. Scroll by Eilionora ingean an Bhaird.

Next Their Excellencies wished to have Kumagaya Masamoto come before them. His deeds as archer, knife and axe thrower, rider, heavy weapons fighter, equestrian champion, and marshal for thrown weapons are too numerous not to be noticed or recognized, and was awarded an Iron comet.

Their Excellencies next invited those scribes who contributed to wording, calligraphy, and/or illumination to scrolls handed out at this court or at My Kingdom for a Horse to come forward, be recognized, and receive a token of appreciation.
