  • From Dameon and Leonie, Baron and Baroness of Aneala, to the populace of Aneala, greetings.

    It has been a busy month, with something happening every weekend, and much creative production.

    The silk banner workshops have run every Saturday since March 11, with four banners completed so far, and another six in progress, with some still to be started. Thanks to Lady Mery for organising and directing the project and also to Lady Susanna for her artistic help and generously hosting the workshops for the last three weekends.

    The Newcomers' tourney at Lake Monger was well attended, with several newcomers and some interested passers-by as well. Thanks to Sir Nathan for stewarding. Congratulations to Lord Sigmund Gabrielis, who won the rapier tourney, and to Sir Nathan, who won the armoured tourney, and Happy Birthday as well, since both gentles celebrated their birthdays two days later.

    Th College of St Basil's Newcomers feast was very well attended, with many newcomers and over 60 people in total enjoying good food and good company. Well done Lady Isolde for stewarding her first event, and to Lord Jacques for being kitchen steward (also a first time). We hope to see many of the newcomers at future events. We awarded a Black feather to Steven of Aneala, and congratulate him for his enthusiastic participation so far.

    The cloak which we are making to present at Rowany Festival is complete, and photos will be posted after it has been awarded at Festival. Thank you to Mistress Branwen, Lady Ydeneya, Lady Elizabeth Severn, Mistress Catherine, Lady Julian, Lady Margarita, Lady Ilaria, and Lady Rynonys for embroidering the patches, and to Mistress Branwen, Lady Elizabeth Severn, Lady Ilaria, Lady Avalon, and Lady Julian for helping sew everything together

    As we write this, there is less than three weeks to the event celebrating Aneala's thirtieth Anniversary as a Barony. See the advertisement elsewhere in the Vine for full details. The Barony is covering the cost of the venue and equipment hire, to make this a very affordable event. There will be a sumptuous feast on Saturday April 22, with many favourite dishes from feasts past, and armoured and rapier tourneys the following day. We will be showing some of the history of the Aneala on Saturday afternoon, and if you have any items or pictures to share, please bring them along.

  • The Shire of Abertridwr is hosting May Crown, at the Kerem Adventure Camp, Bullsbrook from May 12 to 14. Details have been published on Announce, in Pegasus and elsewhere. Come along and watch as the heirs to the kingdom are decided by combat. For those entering the Crown Tourney, the King and Queen have decreed that both combatant and consort must have entered an A&S competition, or participated in an A&S display, during their reign. There will be an A&S display at the event to cover this requirement. There will also be an open A&S competition at the Anealan Baronial Anniversary for those who wish to enter their work in a competition.

    With regret, we are saying farewell to Lord Hadrian di l'Estrille, who leaves next week to take up a job in Southron Gaard in the Crescent Isles (Canterbury, New Zealand). Lady Ydeneya and family will join him later this year. They will leave a huge gap in our group, but we wish them all well in the future, and look forward to visits here and visiting them.

    Don't forget to send in your recommendations for Kingdom awards for deserving people before May Crown. A list of the populace, and the awards they have, is available on the Anealan website at

    Until next timeYours in Service
