      Barony Beyond the Mountain/Bergental Yule

      Greetings, one and all!  As the days grow cold and the North wind begins its relentless pursuit, it's time to seek the warm welcoming halls of good neighbors and friends.  The Barony Beyond the Mountain and our Northern neighbor Bergental, have, once again, combined our efforts to provide such a haven to all who would seek it!  We welcome you to join Her Majesty in our hall for a day of feasting, marshal activities, music, dancing, games, ceremony, and respite.  Merchants are most welcome!

      Their Excellencies of the Barony Beyond the Mountain and Bergental are calling for a court of color and would be delighted by seeing all arrayed in their finery of GREEN.

      There will be a LARGESS CHALLENGE!  Bergental, what can you donate to Their Excellencies Beyond the Mountain? BBM, what can you donate to His Excellency Bergental? Bring it and display it during the day!

      Bring a nifty project to display.

      We will have our traditional SILENT AUCTION.  Proceeds will benefit the Barony Beyond the Mountain, the Barony of Bergental, or the East Kingdom (as chosen by the donor).  BRING SCA-ADJACENT STUFF you no longer want in your house!  Bring Cash or Checks to pay for your new treasures!
