Great Northeastern War XXII
Hebron, Maine
July 11 - 13, 2008


"We'll help you with your tent at all hours, in sheeting rain. . ."

That promise, written in the most recent Household Newsletter, promptly came due when the storm of the season cut loose while Iain and Adrienne's large wall tent was being set up. Perhaps it was the howling wind and the pounding rain, but not a single complaint was heard while the lot of us hauled on the sodden canvas. And while certain that Lord Iain mercifully left a few of the finer adjustments for later, I don't recall the tent ever going up any faster.

And so it goes. Good households are a good idea.

Our thanks and congratulations go to Lord Alexandre Saint Pierre for once again running a fun and safe archery range!

Congratulations to Lord Iain of Malagentia for being recognized as a Grand Master Bowman! Your 14 points on the clout could not be beat.

Congratulations to Lord Nicolas for being granted an Awards of Arms (and for your 98 point Royal Round)!

Congratulations to Lord Vincent for being granted Royal Pardon. . .

Congratulations to Captain Jean de la Montagne on being accepted into the Order of the Golden Rapier! The Order was never more prestigious.

And once again our thanks to all of Haus Wanderstamm, for repeatedly demonstrating the finest qualities anyone could ever hope for in a Household. There was never a more enjoyable encampment.
