Notes for the day:

1.      Midsummer Rose competition happens today.  Any thing made with “Rose”.  (example: Rose Water Cookies, Rose hip Jam, Rose Bath Salts……).  If your entry is meant to be eaten, please be sure to indicate whether or not it includes gluten.  If work will not allow last year’s Rose to attend she has asked that other ladies who do not enter and Her Highness Chiara judge for her.

2.      ‘Defender’ tourneys are open to all entrants.  Should you be victorious, we will expect to see you at next year’s Fields of Gold to coordinate the choosing of your successor.

3.      Classes.  We have room for more classes – arts & sciences, marshal arts, bardic…. (Yes, this is a hint.)  There may be a materials fee for classes – ask your instructor.

4.      Children’s activities require a parental presence, they are not intended as babysitting.  Both of our youth stewards are brand-new volunteers and we do not wish to break them.

5.      All tourneys begin with lists and inspection.  Please report promptly.  Lists are scheduled to close within 15 minutes of start time.

6.      Helm lunch – Gentlemen, please provide food with list of contents.  Ladies, please come prepared to bid for food and lunchtime company.

7.      Potluck – There is NO FEAST FEE for the Saturday evening feast, because we would love it if everyone could attend.  We are hoping to be able to organize servers and entertainment.  Please bring a list of ingredients for your dish, as many of our expected guests have serious allergies.  You will be responsible for your own food storage, as there is no storage room at the Inn and the Fields of Gold ice-house is still in the planning stages.  We suggest the following contributions:

a.       Long-distance travelers:  Breads, cheeses, fruits, salads, sweets.

b.      Locals:  Meats, soups, savories, salads, sweets.
