The Blue Strand 2015-01 January 2015

Greetings good gentles,

Welcome back to The Blue Strand.  After a sabbatical, I am happy to report that I have returned full of enthusiasm.  Our fair Barony will once again be penned for future posterity.

There has been so much that happened in the last year.  Our Barony turned a year older.  Gilbert Purchase became Champion, again.  Miguel de Santiago became captain of the Black Dolphin.  Emmett Thorgrimsson became Page, replacing Peregrine.  These are just the highlights of the year past.

Following is what has occurred in the last month.  As always, if you have any articles or pictures you would like to submit.  They can be sent to kg.chronicler@gmail.com

And now, without further ado I present the First 2015 edition.

The Blue Strand January 2015

The Blue Strand 2013-07 August 2013

Greeting Good Gentles and welcome to another edition of the Blue Strand,

What an amazing month it has been. Krae Glas celebrated it’s second anniversary in a very beautiful tournament style. Both Heavy and Rapier fighters fought for the honour on the field and the points to win the day. It was truly amazing to see.

In the Winter Rapier Tournament Series we saw that even a Viking sometimes requires honour above all else, to win the day. Leif won the mantle of captain of the guard with honour points breaking the tie for first place.

If you didn’t understand the rules of this day of honour, have no fear. Our own Don Everard Sefar has provided an account which is published in this very issue.

I do hope you enjoy this edition.
And without further ado, I give you the wonder that was August.
