Twenythird day of November in the year 2014

Penned by Baroness Genevieve la Minstrelle


We are happy to announce the winner and new Baron of Western Seas, His Excellency Jörgen Unruh who fought on behalf of his beautiful consort, Her Excellency Ödriana!

With a field of 5, we were very impressed with the other competitors, m'Lord Martin who fought on behalf of his consort, m'Lady Elisabetta, Lord Andrew on behalf of his lady Melissa, Baron Claudius who fought on behalf of THL Duibheasa, and Lady Ödriana who fought on behalf of Lord Jorgen (yes indeed, husband and wife did fight each other for one round!). It was a double elimination tourney with one time with shield and one without shield. The Champion was Lord Andrew, who fought the final 2 out of 3 bouts. Huzzah, Lord Andrew!

Special presentations were made to Lord Gui as the newest member of the Baronial Guard, and m'Lady Christie and m'Lady Sadhbh for the pending award of Argent Comet.

Many, many thanks to Sir Marco for heading the Lists, Sir Valeran for being our Herald, and the presentations from the Baronial Guard, Canton of Castlenorth, Lord Jurgen and Lady Odrianna, and a beautiful singing presentation by m'Ladies Elisabetta, Mary, Hannah, and Rebecca.

Most of all, thank you to the entire Barony for all your help and support throughout this year. We are so grateful to you all for having us serve you! And we will always be here to help.
