Haus Wanderstamm's Aluminum-free Zone!
Haus Wanderstamm put up a very comfortable encampment this year, despite missing several of our members (and I do mean "miss!"). We had marvelous guests, some of the best neighbors, enough ice cream to save us from the heat (thanks, Twig!), and the East Kingdom's greatest camping event laid out around us. We were witness to the miracles of Lord Neville's bacon festival, Lord Boden's self-rising tent, and the Province of Malagentia's only second knight in 12,000 days! We were involved in running the event, with various members in charge of Archery, the New Moon Balle, setting up the roads, Arts & Science, and, perhaps retroactively, Info Point. Our Veronica Veasalius supervised the the youth in handing out water on the battlefield. We looked out for one another, we collaborated and connived, we shared in a marvelous feast, drank to our absent friends, then drank to our absinthe friends. Is it any wonder that the word "wanderstamm" describes folk who enjoy traveling and camping together?
Congratulations to our Lady Ninian for being recognized in Royal court as a Master Bowman! Who knew you would get such mileage from that Bowman badge? Congratulations to my Lady Anna Mickel, the East Kingdom's newest Terpsichore, and our heartfelt thanks to the folk who choreographed that effort!! Much thanks to Iain of Malagentia for once again running a fun and safe archery range. I'm sure the Queen has already forgiven you for failing her bow. And our warmest welcomes to Lady Aesa, the newest member of Haus Wanderstamm! You bore our "hospitality" so well, we knew you belonged.
