Brigitte has issued her dessert challenge!  Entrants should bring a dessert (or desserts, you may enter more than once) to fit into:
Foxes:  Foxes know a little about a lot of things.  They are also tricksters, so entries in this category with less than authoritative documentation, and perhaps not fit into a particular period of the Middle Ages or Renaissance.

Hedgehogs:  Hedgehogs know a lot about one thing.  These entries will be held to a higher degree of scrutiny, and should have full documentation and come from a particular period of the Middle Ages or Renaissance.

Brigitte and her panel of judges will sample all entries, but desserts will be shared by all guests of the event!  Questions may be directed to Brigitte (as listed below.)

Yes, for those who like to fabricate fancy finery, a faux fox will be provided along with fabric of all types, and you will get to design persona and garb for your furred friend and enter a fashion show at the end of the day.  (You may bring your own fabric, etc.)We are asking that, should you desire for you new friend to go home with you, we hope you will make a $10 donation to help defray the cost of supplying stuffies.  The winner will get a special surprise from the autocrat!

The Ultimate Proposal Game:
Awards for sincerity, originality, humor, guilt, and oratory.  (proposals made during the contest shall be deemed non-binding.) Entrants shall be expected to propose something to someone during lulls in the feast.

A&S display/competition:
Categories will be:  food, foxes, fortuna.  All entries shall be judged, with bonus points for those which fall into the categories, or which tickle the autocrats bizarre sense of humor.  (Cross entries allowed.)

Quilt Raffle:
$5 a chance or six for $25.

The shire of Nordenhal is raffling your choice of one of three of Mistress Brigitte’s beautiful quilts.  (Photos to be posted soon.)
