Greetings unto the industrious populace of Skraeling Althing from Baron Shahid and Baroness Catherine.
This autumn we had the pleasure of attending another fine Feast of the Hare. This is a special event for Us, and We were not disappointed with the wonderful turnout and activities. This was a particularly exciting Feast of the Hare, as the Rick Mercer Report was filming for the day. (For viewing details, see the Ealdormere Gazette).
We held two very well attended tournaments, on for armoured combat and one for rapier combat. Congratulations to Sir Trumbrand the Wanderer for winning the armoured combat tournament.
We would also like to congratulate the following people who were given awards in Their Magesties court. Congratulations to His Excellency Duncan Gabha MacLachlan MacLeod for receiving a Court Barony. We are so very pleased and proud!. Congratulations also to The Honourable Lord Dafydd ap Alan for his admission into the Order of the Crucible, and to The Honourable Lord Laurenz Tonnemacher for his admission to the Order of Thorbjorn’s Hammer. Not only are they now Honourable Lords, but they also hold the honour of being our Rapier and Armoured Combat Champions. Wassail! We were also well pleased to see Lady Maeve Dubh receive an Award of the Scarlet Banner, Lady Song Zidie receive an Award of the Maiden’s Heart, and Lady Gwendolyn of Aldburg receive an Award of the Orion. Congratulations, everyone!

You’ve all been waiting eagerly for this news so it’s my great pleasure to share it with you finally. As promised, I will be shouting it from the virtual rooftops for the next few days. I will also be reaching out to Society and the other Kingdoms to give them a heads up so they can share this as well.
Promoting our episode through social media is the most important way we can maximize our reach across Canada and beyond. Our Kingdom Social Media Deputy, Lady Marrin von Waldburg, will lead this campaign for us. But I bet she would appreciate it if everyone could assist by sharing, liking, posting and re-tweeting about all of this through your own extended circles. Thank you!
In the meanwhile, I hope this news inspires a few “RMR Viewing Parties” in living rooms across Ealdormere. Please share your party selfies and pictures if so! (Tag #ealdormere or @ealdormere)
The winter is coming upon us all soon and We know that it is a time to hunker down and savour the closeness of the home fires. We also know it is a wonderful time to tell stories, to sing songs, to create new things. To that end, We are issuing two challenges to you, Our populous. Both challenges are open to all members of Ealdormere. There will only be one winner chosen for each challenge and those winners will be declared at the morning court of Spring Coronation.
