In the words of Roger Rabbit:  "P-p-p-p-p-PLEEEZE" come!
November 11 - Nevsky’s Revenge
Barony of Dun Carraig, Leonardtown, MD

As winter nears it is time to celebrate and relive Nevsky’s Revenge.  So, we 
call forth all Teutonic Knights, all Russians and let us not forget the 
Mongols to do battle.  The Teutonic Knights will face the Russians and the 
day shall decide which side the Mongols take.  Come and enjoy this day of 
fighting and feasting.

Fighting:  Planned for the day are just series of mass melees in the spirit 
of Alexander Nevsky’s victory over the Teutonic Knights.  In the battle the 
victory occured because of the drowning of the Teutonic Knights when they 
fell through the ice (we will not try to recreate this portion of the 
battle). The sides will be split with each fighter choosing one of three 
sides (Russian, Teutonic Knight, or Mongol).  Questions concerning the 
martial activities should be directed to Lord Helmut Krueger (Dave Weese) 
dweese at, (540) 644-8021.

Archery:  An archery shoot will be held.  (I regret having no specifics at 
this time).

A&S:  There will be a class on the making of pysanky eggs as well as a 
competition for the best decorated egg.  In addition, a competition for the 
best Eastern European garb, first attempt. An ikon painting contest has been 
added as well.  Questions should be directed to Lady Rieinmelt verch Owain 
(Catrina Trainor) catrainor at

The day will involve dancing focused on eastern European styles.  New dances 
will be taught and several dancing exhibitions will be made throughout the 
day.  There will be dancing following feast for gentles to use what they 
learned. Questions should be directed to Lord Edvard Gayer via e-mail
