Event Information

(From the original 2-page undated Crown Prints published in Aug 1974)

Southern Twelfth Night, in the Principality of Caid will be hosted by the Barony of Dreiburgen, on Saturday, January 11, 1975. Court will be in the afternoon this year, so as not to take up too much out of the festivities and revels. The exact site, time, and directions will be given in The Page and the next issue of the Crown Prints, if we get one out before then.

The banquet will once again feature lamb, and will cost $5/person. Make checks payable to deleted, and send them, with full SCA name and honorifics, mundane name nad address with a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) to: Baroness Alys von Markheim (Alison von Markheim). If you wish a vegetarian plate, please so state. Tickets for serving people and clean-up crew (kitchen) are available at a discount: $2 for serving, and $2.50 for clean-up.

Please make reservations as soon as possible, as working capital is urgently required; tickets at the door will be very limited in number, and subject to the discretion of the Royalty and the Autocrat.

Church halls are about the only type of facility within the budget; regretfully, most have a policy of banning alcoholic beverages, please be warned. It would be appreciated if everyone would bring their own trenchers/plates, goblets and silver, although we will have plastic available for those who don't/can't.

Along with the eating, reveling, etc., some entertainment is planned; anyone with something to contribute along this lie should contact the Dreiburgen Mistress of the Arts Kirstin of Hoschar. There will be a Dreiburgen arts contest, along with the Angels-originated Doll-Dressing contest. The Dreiburgen competition will be for the best embroidered of other hand-done trim. Categories: 1) best embroidered trim, hand done from scratch, starting with ribbon, cloth, etc. in a medieval style; 2) the best trim using store-bought trim as a base, and adding beads, metallic thread, etc. to it. We will also judge and give prizes for 3) solidly beaded or woven-bead trims, 4) hand-woven trims, and 5) knitted or crocheted trim, if we have enough entries in each category. The trim may be already on a garment, but the garment may not be on a body when entered. The trim should be a least 8" or so long and contain at least two repeats of the pattern. Multiple entries are encouraged. All trim should be in the hands of the judges by opening court, 12th Night. For further info, contact Lady Kathe Feghut-von-Munchhausen (Käthe Willig von Mainz).

Anyone needing to be picked up from Ontario Dragon-port &/or needing sleeping accommodations in Dreiburgen, please contact the Autocrat Alys von Markehim (Alison von Markheim) or Æoelwig Æoelfwigson. For other details, volunteering (please), etc., please contact the Autocrat.

The DOLL DRESSING CONTEST has been mentioned previously. All entries must be submitted no later than Wednesday, January 8, 1975, with the winners being announced, and suitable prizes awarded at Caid Twelfth Night January 11th. Categories: 1) dress a doll as yourself or someone else in the Society, 2) historical costume, 3) a pair in either of the above categories, & 4) horse trappings. Additional categories may be added if there are sufficient entries. For further information, contact Lady Tyra Stuart of Moray, Baroness Ximena Aubel de Cambria, or Mistress Bevin Fraser of Stirling.

Event Chronicle

The 4th Southern 12th Night was held in Dreiburgen on Jan. 11, AS IX. King Paul and Queen Carol were present, as was Prince Hugh the Undecided, who rose gallantly from a sickbed to attend court. There was an afternoon court followed by a banquet, entertainment and a revel.

The autocrat, Lady Alys von Markheim (Alison von Markheim) thanked the following: Lord Thomas of the Double Axe and Lord Renfield of the Inland Marsh (Edmund Renfield Wanderscribe) for devoting endless hours in the hot August sun and much chariot fuel to go hall-hunting; Lady Kathe von Munchausen (Käthe Willig von Mainz) for drawing up the tickets; Baroness Ximena Aubel de Cambria for tons of valuable advice; Lady Tyra Stewart of Moray for providing the sheep; Ionnes Leckie for the loan of his music system; the Barony of Calafia for all the lovely bread; everybody who sent in their money early; Leo de Coronado and Rowena de Segovia for handling tickets and helping in general; and all the entertainers who brightened the evening, especially Lavendar of Lorne and her wonderful cast.

I would also like to thank everyone who cooked, served and helped clean up, most especially Viscount Christian of Orange, Lord Alejandro de Salamanca, Kate of Headington, Vanessa de Linn, Rebecca Ba'Sheara, Katherine of Tyrone, Amy of Oak Glen, Kerrinda of Kymry, Elvira de Refugio, Tarah Leah, Roxandra of Orange, Kay, Avesta T'Zar, Aethelbrand Haffocweller, Æoelwig Æoelfwigson, Bernard ben Barra, Duke Paul of Bellatrix, Jon Trimara, Kirstin of Hoschar, Janay d'Aquitaine, James of the Dunes, Dana, Lord Boncoeur, and Arrigan of Kerry.

Most of all, I want to thank my lord husband, Baron Waldt von Markheim for putting up with me in the last few weeks before the great event.

We at House Markheim are in possession of things that have been lost at various Dreiburgen events and at 12th Night, including: 1 duffel bag; 1 dagger; 2 mugs; 1 pair men's sox (clean); 1 dk. blue woman's coat (mundane); 2 pieces hip armor; 1 briar pipe; 1 knife with sheath; 1 woven rug (used as tapestry). These and the rest of the Lost & Found will be brought to the Baron's Prize Tourney and the Calafian New Year Tourney. If not claimed by then, the items will be auctioned off at the Dreiburgen Spring Tourney May 10. You can identify & claim your property by calling (deleted). -- Lady Alys Von Markheim


From the History (by Wilhelm von Schlüssel):

Prince Hugh and Princess Rosemary held court. King Paul and Queen Carol attended. King Paul gave an Award of Arms to Arabella Lyon de Rohese and made Armond Sebastian de la Forêt de Savigny and Maihe McFregy Court Barons. There was a banquet followed by contests and revelry. There was a St. George and the Dragon play, and Giesele-Hildegaard sang and played the guitar. Karin von Schatten won the embroidered trim from scratch contest, a friend of Baroness Jessica Llyrindi of Northmarch won the knitted or Starting from Existing Trim contest, and the Insulter's Guild won the final contest with a truly yucky entry. Eric von Strein was made Principality Chirurgeon. Alys von Markheim was the autocrat.
