Do I know anyone local going to the Tourney of the Daffodils this Saturday who might be willing to bring a lilac offshoot or two home for me from a friend?

The mystery continues!!! WHO randomly stashed shuttlecocks all over our house on New Year's Eve? And WHY did they do it?!? Our count is up to ten... but did we find them all or are some still LURKING IN WAIT?!?! (cue dramatic theme music)

In celebration of recent events, some dear friends painted my SCA coat of arms on a number of small silk flags. The one on the left is an example of the "real" version (Azure, on a chief indented Or three pommes); the one on the right is Mooooonster Flaaaaag!!!

I meant to cross-post this from FB yesterday. Just going to leave it here now... :)

So, hey, the other day when I was saying I thought life was pretty good? I basically had no idea. Yesterday was an absolutely fantastic day of music-making and story reading with wonderful company. Then there was a thing and people said exceptionally nice things and I might have cried a little and... hoo boy, am I not going to be coherent about this just yet. The crowd had flags with my arms on them, you guys! I love all of you crazy people. Thank you to everyone who made it possible, and to everyone who shared their joy with me.

(Translation for my non-SCA friends: At the end of the event yesterday, I was summoned to join the Order of the Laurel, which is the highest arts award we give, and the celebration of the presentation of the writ was lovely/warm/funny in my home group's inimitable way. I might be a little verklempt for a while. )

Can anyone steer me towards a good modern English translation of "Les sept sages de Rome"? In particular, I'm looking for the Roman de Kanor.

Bonjour mes amis!

Are you (or do you know someone who is) in search of good fellowship with a wide range of singers, musicians, storytellers, actors, jesters, and other performers of all levels? Looking to collaborate with like-minded gentles? Willing to share your own experience and advice? In search of new material or a different topic to tackle? Come meet the College of Performers, the East Kingdom's guild for performing artists!

The CoP is open to all performers and supporters, and will be hosting a
meet-and-greet social at Pennsic on Sunday, Aug. 3 in Bhakail (N11),
starting just before 8pm. We'll kick off with a performance by the
inimitable Wandering Gypsy Theatre at 8, and follow that up with
refreshments and performance opportunities for those who'd like them.

We're also running a teaching song circle on Saturday, Aug. 2 at 4pm in the EK Royal encampment -- come learn Baroness Aneleda's "Oriens Victoriosus," the song our radiant Empress has selected for the kingdom's march to Opening Ceremonies, as well as several other beloved EK songs. The more Easterners who sing together, the merrier (not to mention the more ferocious)!

In addition, the College will be holding our annual business meeting on
Tuesday, Aug. 5 at 10:30am in the EK Royal encampment.

For more details or to add your name to the roster, please feel free to
contact me off-list. Looking forward to seeing everyone at Pennsic, and to making a joyful noise together!

         Votre servante,
              Sabine de Kerbriant, Chatelaine of the East Kingdom College
of Performers
