Their Excellencies, Sarra Ashton of York and Brenna MacDonald invite All to join in a Celebration of the Barony of Stargate’s 45th Anniversary & Yule Revel on December 1, 2018 from 9am – 9pm

Join us for a day of fun and revelry in the setting of a Medieval English Yule Revel.

Join in the spirit of the Season with Dancing, Music and Fellowship within Our Baronial Hall. There will be a Bountiful Feast for All to Partake in this Day of Celebration. Also, too, Our Annual Table Decorating Contest will take place during the Celebration.
Their Excellencies invite All to Compete for the honor of being chosen as the Newest Stargate Baronial Bard and Artisan Champions.

Stargate Bardic Competition – The competition to decide Stargate Bard will be held at Sratgate Yule on December 1. Join Their Excellencies Brenna and Sarra for Stargate’s 45th Anniversary celebration and compete to be the next Bard of Stargate!  The title of Stargate Bard does come with responsibility. The winner will be expected to host a bardic circle at Gulf Wars, or arrange for one to be hosted. Traditionally this is on Tuesday evenings.
Round 1 – Stargate! – A piece honoring Stargate or her members. Ansteorra’s first Barony is turning a spry 45. Honor this achievement with a tale, poem, or song about Stargate’s past present, or future. Pieces about the group or its members, past or present, will delight Their Sentinel Excellencies and may bring you fame.  Round 2 – Period – Regale Their Excellencies with a piece from period or based on period style. Variety is welcomed, so varying for performance styles from the first and round is appreciated.  Round 3 (If Necessary) – Bring Your Best! – Their Excellencies may select 2-3 bards to perform one piece to determine the new Stargate Bard. Be prepared to bring all you’ve got to represent the Sentinel Lands and Their Excellencies Brenna and Sarra!
