    Gesangs of the Stone January 18th, 2014

    Star of Bethlehem Lutheran Church. 1355 Jonestown Rd, Winston-Salem, NC 27103

    Many of us here in Caer Mear are fond of German cuisine. The Canton of Middlegate is offering a wonderful German themed

    even with a feast prepared by the wonderful Lady Murienne L’aloiere ! Many of you have read the articles she has

    written for the Quid Novi/QD and know she is a gifted cook!

    They are offering a novice A&S competition of German Garb/ headwear as well as a Zufällige Waffen Tourney (random weap-

    on tourney), Rapier tournaments and Bardic throughout the day.

    Contact the autocrat to see if there is still feast space available!

    There was no monthly business meeting in December due to schedule conflicts with several members. However...

    There are some things to keep in mind that will be here before you know it! Caritas, there will be a need for help here with setting up cots on Jan 25th (see Master William if you can help) and then the meal we provide

    on the 28th. Updates will be coming on FB and baronial mailing list. Please don’t forget about the donation jar that will be out at A&S/practices

    to help with the cost of the meal.

    Dame Magda would love to hear from you if have any ideas for classes or would like to teach one!

    Your humble Chronicler is always interested in anything you have for

    The Quid Novi/QD, otherwise she starts writing stuff herself and THAT never ends well...
