At the Madrone Baronial Social on Monday, August 12, it was Family Ice Cream Social night! The weather was lovely, and we assembled in the shady park across the street from our usual location at KapKa School, for socializing, medieval combat practice, and dance practice. The Baronial Social takes place in street clothes, however anyone participating in combat practice wears their protective gear or armor.

The ice cream table at the August Baronial Social was busy.

The 40th annual Peasant’s Revel took place on July 13 at a park here in our Barony. The weather was great, the peasants were not too disruptive except during a spirited food fight. The supper of stew, homemade bread, cheese (which had been rolled down a hill first) and fruit was the perfect cap to the day. See you all next year, Peasants!
