First Tournament of the Greenwood – April 8, 2017

Please join us for our first Tournament of the Greenwood to be held on Saturday, April 8 in the Barony of Sternfeld at the Grand Pageant Tournament of Chivalry and Ball.

This is an open tournament for both archery and thrown weapons in which you may try your skills against a Forester of the Greenwood Company. There will be two lists: a duel list and a coaching list. In the Duel, challenge a Forester to a duel. There will be a set of fun and challenging targets from which to choose. Or, if you rather, invite a Forester to shoot with you just for fun and use that opportunity to get pointers. Learn what it’s like to shoot on the Champion’s team. Learn some tips and tricks to better improve your skills. If you make your own equipment, bring examples of your craftsmanship to share.

There will also be a round table called “Ask the Forester.” Sit down and have a chat. Talk about archery and thrown weapons, ask questions, get pointers on putting together a fun archer event, and more!

From the Dragon Herald

Greetings unto the heralds, pursuivants, scribes, and populace of the Great Middle Kingdom from Meister Konrad Mailander, Dragon Principal Herald.

It is my pleasure this day to announce some appointments to offices under my purview as Dragon Herald.

Herr Alexander Adelbrecht von Markelingen is the new Lincoln Herald, the Regional Herald for the Midlands. Signore Guillaume Gallatini is the new Oaken Herald, the Regional Herald for the North Oaken Region. Lord Sebastian Hunzicker is the new Lunar Pursuivant, the deputy to Constellation Herald. Lady Sorcha Fraser is the new Dragon Signet.

Since Guillaume was the Bicorporate Pursuivant, the deputy to the Oaken Herald, that office is now open. If you would like to apply for the office of Bicorporate Pursuivant send you application to me at herald@midrealm.org and to Guillaume at northoaken.herald@midrealm.org

We also are still looking for applicants for the positions of Lakes Pursuivant, deputy to Fenris Herald in Pentamere, and Prairie Pursuivant, deputy to Lincoln Herald in Midlands. If interested send you applications to myself and the appropriate Regional.

I would like to thank Dame Estelle de la Mer for her service as Dragon Signet and again thank Master Daniel Eysham of Tweed and His Lordship Piotr Zavilov for their long service as Midlands and North Oaken Region Heralds.

In service to Crown and College,

Konrad Dragon
