Good greetings, one and all!  The Barony Beyond the Mountain is pleased to be able to host the King's and Queen's Rapier Championship.  The Championship Tournament will be held during the day, with court to follow.

In addition to the tournament, we have many other fun activities planned for the day.  There will be a number of A&S classes during the day including:

We are also planning a fundraiser with the proceeds to offset site costs.  Do some spring cleaning and dig deep in those closets!  There will be a Silent Auction of SCA donations, with special emphasis on arts and sciences you wanted to learn but never did.  Now is the time to gather up that loom, embroidery floss, pewter casting kit, carving tools, stained glass, etc, and bring it for others to learn!  Please be prepared to write a donation sheet for each separate type of craft and have them in a presentable and portable manner so that others may easily see and bid for your goods!  It will run from 10 am to 4 pm (or right before court).  Contact M.  Damiana Illaria d'Onde with questions at lizjones429@earthlink.net
