(If you really, really don't want to be a part of the contest, please let us know) Please bring a card with the list of ingredients. There will be prizes!
There will be a No Holds Bardic competition to determine the new Angels Bardic champion for the year. If you would like to enter please send an email to Angels’ A&S Minister, Lady Arianna Foxford at email@example.com before December 1 to sign up. Both groups and individuals are invited to perform and you do not need to enter the contest to perform. We ask that you do, however, make your piece family appropriate.
Table Decorating Competition-
Angels will be hosting its annual table decorating competition. Entries will be judged directly after court. Prizes for themed and non-themed tables will be awarded.
The dessert competition will be judged for period and non-period entries. Please make sure your entry will serve at least 6 portions (more for the potluck is always encouraged!)
Homemade or purchased ornaments are welcome as donations to the ornament raffle. Each person who donates an ornament will receive one raffle ticket and additional tickets may be purchased throughout the event for $1.00. The ornaments will be distributed before closing court.
Games and More Games - Angels' Gaming Champion will be chosen at Yule and will be hosted by the current Games Champion, Lord Reinhardt in a format of his choosing.
Toys for Tots Drive-
Times are hard, but explaining to a child why they don’t have any presents during the holidays is even harder. The Angels Yule Toys for Tots drive has raised hundreds of dollars worth of Holiday Joy over the past few years for children who may not otherwise get presents. Please bring any unwrapped, unopened new toy to donate. These toys will be donated to the Midnight Mission in downtown LA.
Baron Peter Cadarn, Lord Gerrit d'Orleans. Please contact the co-stewards at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to celebrating with you!
