Rhydderich Hael Masked Ball
30 Years In Hael
Last updated: 11/30/06
Barony of the Rhydderich Hael
December 9th 2006
Thirty years ago, a tall warrior strode out of the wilds of Fredonia.
Stopping at the shore of the great Erie Lake, she saw that it was
good. So, did Morgan Elandris make the Rhydderich Hael her home. And
having no further concern, she and her companions sought adventure in
the East. Many wars and feuds did Morgan fight. Honor and fear were
heaped upon her name and, in time, she became a Baroness by her own
hand.... But that's a different story.
Yes, in AS XI, the foundation of our Barony was laid, and three
decades later we stand tall and proud at our achievements. In honor of
our 30th anniversary, we wish to show our gratitude to the Kingdom of
AEthelmearc and our neighbors by holding a free event. That's right,
the event is free to any and all who show up and tell our Troll, "I
like the Rhydderich Hael." If you don't like the Hael and don't want
to lie to the Troll, please bring a toy for Toys for Tots. There will
be a feast offered at a modest fee and a lunch sideboard.
There will be fencing in the morning, run by Don Ivan ap Myrddin to
honor one of the lost pearls of the Hael, THL Caitlin Dierdre of
As this is a Masked Ball, there will be a ball, with masks, and
dancing. The theme will be what were you wearing 30 years ago. Please,
no diapers. Come in your oldest garb that still fits you. Bonus points
if your garb fits your offspring and you make them wear it. Feron
helms will be legal for this day only (only for protection for Strip
the Willow). Baroness Peregrine and the Crow's Feet Dancers will be on
hand to lead the dancing and to teach people how to dance.
There will be a desert revel after feast, the theme is chocolate, with
a prize going to the best period and non period chocolate deserts.
Autocrat will be Caleb Reynolds (Caleb Ronsen, 64 Thurston Ave.,
Kenmore NY, 14217-1320, caleb at buffnet.net).
