Barony News
The Barony has been busy!  We have started, or gone back to (as us older folks will remember), having fighter practice combined with general shenanigans in Bidwell Park on Sundays, called a Gather. Come in garb, or not, and play! 

A&S had a workshop on Viking bling (festoons) that was well received. 

Sir Bjorn, Eukrates, Justinian, and Jeanie held a demo at Chico state, and FORTY-FOUR people attended! Several even showed up for Fighter Practice at Bearhaven on the following Wednesday. 

Upcoming Events

Yule feast is coming up on December 14th, Butte Hall, in Gridley.  Event opens at 9 am and closes at 11 pm. Tickets may be purchased by Paypal, for $25, or $20 if you are a member. Contact Um’Jabrill (Mozelle Williams on Facebook) to purchase in advance.
This is a great event, so make sure you plan on going!
