    Tor's archery practice will resume the weekend after Unslung Heroes, on Sundays from 11am-3pm; however, expect that there may be a few weeks around Lilies where it may not happen. Check the BFS calendar, the Tor calendar, or these announcements as the given days approach.
  • Award Recommendations: Unslung Heroes, and the Tournament of Horse and Falcons are both approaching rapidly, and both will be attended by the Crown. Be thinking about award recommendations, both at the Baronial and the Kingdom level!

She is looking for fighters to help out, or with gear the classes could borrow. Activities will include making youth combat weapons, a show & tell of some fighters' kits (a spectrum from cheap, bare-minimum armor to fancy, nice armor is desired), practice fixing/maintaining armor, and a chance to try some armor on. If you are interested in helping out, or have an idea for some other class you'd like to teach, even if it doesn't fit that day's theme, please contact her.

Announcements:

  • Konstantia is sponsoring two A&S competitions at Horse and Falcons, for Most Detailed Heraldic Kit and Best Banner/Heraldic Item. If you are interested in judging, or donating something to the prize basket, let her know.
  • "Greetings, all! As most of you know, I’ve been making painted linen wall hangings for almost a year now. Many folks have expressed interest, and asked questions on how I made them. They take about 3 months to make, so it isn’t something I could just whip together. Unless I’m making one, I wouldn’t be able to demonstrate – and, as quite a bit of it is a messy process, it isn’t something I could easily do at an event. With that in mind, I’ve decided to make a third painting. This one will be a bit smaller, but still quite large – so there is demo opportunity! The linen is ordered, the frame is almost done, my garage is accessible, and the rabbit glue will be waiting! This Sunday, February 19th, from 2-5pm, at my home, I will hold a demo on these paintings. We will stitch the linen onto the frame to prep it for sizing, whip up a batch of rabbit glue, and give it a good sizing! Afterward, I will give a hands-on demonstration on how to process an egg to prepare the paint, and will have some squares of pre-sized linen available for practice. The materials can get a bit costly, and if anyone would like to donate to the cause, it would be really appreciated. If you will be there, please let me know so I know who is coming and to make sure not to begin without you, but be on time if at all possible. I’ve made an event page, but as my address is on it, it is set to private, so you’ll need an invitation – just let me know if you want one. YiS, Lady Adelaide Sarsfield"  Editor's note: the referenced event page is on facebook. If you are not on facebook, contact her for the address.
