Lots of our 2008 & 9 weekends are Medieval in nature

At 12th Night 2008, Robin/Sabrina was invested into the 1st company of Queen's Artisans. This was a lovely honor indeed. Unfortunately you can only see Sabrina in her lush black velvet cotehardie with her back to the audience.

This is from the West An Tir war - July 4th weekend 2008. Will is on the far left in blue and red. The war was in Gold Beach Oregon. About 1000 fighters took to the field of battle.

Sabrina was the class autocrat for the war. One of the classes was on dyeing with natural dyes. Here are the results of her labors with silk and wool (some her own spun wool); in cochineal and indigo.

Will escorts Sabrina forward to introduce her as his consort for the tournament for the Principality of the Mists. Will carries the banner Sabrina created. Sabrina is wearing her "Italian hat" with her wreath of poppies; a symbol of her membership in the Order of the Golden Poppy.

Will defeats Vlasts in the tournament lists; saluting his fallen foe.

Some places have additional attendees. This emu had free range of the activities. He visited each of the tents; even the Royal pavilion where he left his calling card.
