Estrella War – 19-25 February 2019

At this point I’m pretty sure we could write a book about Estrella War. Between flight issues, truck problems, torrential rain, hundreds of cars stuck and stranded, on paper it certainly didn’t seem like it would be a fun event. However, it was probably the best event I’ve ever been to. Weather killed almost all activities of the war, ruined tents, clothes, and so much more. But what we learned…

Knight’s Gambit – 2 February 2019

A weekend spent at Dalwhinnie Fields is never time spent unwisely. Knight’s Gambit was immersive, busy, and delightful. Thank you so much to all who made it possible. Thorngil always impresses with their level of organization and steadfast work. Feast was exceptional, and the ambiance Lex, Duck, and many others have created with their dreams to share with us all is simply humbling. Congratulations to Legio uv Orkney for his…

Menhir – 19 January 2019

What an incredible weekend. Menhir was a fabulous event that went off on so many levels without a hitch! I owe so much to the event staff, my entourage, torch, parchment, and many more. It truly takes a village, and BOY was there a village at Menhir. Court was full to the brim and so many deserving individuals wiped tears from their faces upon receipt of due recognition. It is…

Panhandle Skirmishes – 11-13 January, 2019

Panhandle skirmishes was an absolute blast! The weather was incredible, the food, friends, and shenanigans were second to none. The Barony of Oldenfeld, as always, has inspired, and the hospitality and good cheer was unending. Their Excellencies inspire their people and oversaw the event with great candor. I strongly encourage more Meridians to mark their calendars for the event next year. The fighting scenarios were every bit as matched by…

Fall Crown List – 10 November 2018

Crown List is paired with Coronation as the events that, more than any other, embody the Dream. Hope in the Crown, Honor on the list field, and the camaraderie that we cherish all unfold at these hallowed events. In what must have been the coldest Crown List in our years in Meridies, we saw warm hearts, smiling faces, and togetherness. Crown List is a place of honor, humility, faith, and…

Coronation – 13 October 2018

Support, love, humility, kindness, and friendship. These are only a fraction of the qualities we saw in so many people at Coronation.

Coronation is often the busiest and most challenging day for a crown, and without…
