Darkwood A&S is this weekend -- check out our website  
( for full details, including:

Classes, classes and more classes:  Lecture classes, hands on classes,  
dancing classes, sewing classes and messy classes.  And that's just  
Saturday!  On Sunday, there will be a war practice and classes on war  
support -- marshaling, waterbearing and caring for your fighter.

The Bard of the Oaks audition:  Join the Barony for a potluck dinner  
and be entertained as entrants vie for the honor of becoming  
Darkwood's 20th Anniversary Bard of the Oaks!  The potluck will begin  
around 6:30 (or as near as we can manage) and the entertainments will  
be scheduled accordingly.  Bring a dish to share with 8-10 people  
(A-I, main dishes; J-R, salads and side dishes; S-Z, breads or  
desserts), and your table and chairs, and prepare for an evening of  
feasting and camaraderie!

The Oaken Chef competition:  The Oaken Chef will be our takeoff on the  
Iron Chef competitions. We'll have a table of "secret ingredient" and  
a pantry of staple ingredients, but there are no limitations. You can  
bring whatever you think you might want to use and any reference  
materials you think you might need. You can have up to three people on  
your team, you'll have half an hour to research/formulate your plan  
and an hour to prepare three dishes featuring the secret ingredient.   
Currently, there is only one team signed up to participate in the  
Oaken Chef competition.  Please email me by 2:00 p.m. tomorrow if  
you'd like to sign up, otherwise the competition will be postponed to  
another event.

And just because we can, we'll have space available for an A&S  
display.  Bring items to show off -- completed, or works in progress.   
Bring copies of your documentation to hand out, and share info with  
other artisans.  Bring tokens to show your appreciation.  Bring  
yourselves to see what other people are making!

See you this weekend!
