The Feast of St. Crispins
October 21, 2017
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2017 Feast, and congratulations to our new defenders!
Arts & Sciences Defender 2017
Lissette de la Rose of Dragons Mist
Due to the aggressively heavy rainfall we were unable to have our YAC, Archery, and Thrown Weapons tourneys, though our current Defender was ready to provide a challenge to select a worthy successor.; therefore our current defenders will be serving until Acorn War in 2018.
For details of the Feast council meeting, see this blog post.
On October 25, 1415, the English, under the command of Henry-V, won a decisive, crushing victory against the French. After the metaphorical dust had settled, Henry reportedly promised that not a year should pass when St. Crispin's Day should cease to be remembered. Therefore, we at Mt. Edge, are minded to observe that day in history. We honor this tradition every October with a grand feast. We will also be holding our monthly Council meeting towards the end of the evening - all are welcome to attend!
As usual, we hold our Arts-and-Sciences Defender's Tournament at this event! If interested in entering, please have your projects ready. If interested in entering, please bring a recent A&S project and share your expertise and passion for your subject. Our Shire Archery, Thrown Weapons, and Youth Armored Combat Defenders will be chosen at this event in 2017 due to the cancellation of Acorn War.
This event has no associated fees for both members and non-members, but we encourage everyone to bring a non-perishable donation to the local food bank.

From the South Take 99W towards McMinnville turn left on Durham Lane (if you get to the city proper you have gone too far.) Go down Durham Lane until you see the Heritage Center on the left. (If you get to Highway 18 you have just past it).
