The first nine peers have already signed up for Laurels vs. Pelicans, and the group includes a Midrealm Champion! Now the call is going out for more adventurous peers. The event raises money for the Pennsic war chest, which funds events such as the royalty dinner. The Laurels vs. Pelicans website opens fundraising on June 7 . Peers can sign up after fundraising starts (and have in the past), but are encouraged to sign up before then if possible.
So far this year’s group includes Mesterna Tyzes “Zsof” Sofia, who is the King’s Bard of the Mid. Sir Tanaka Reiko, well known for entertaining people in the heavy list arena, has signed up to wield a boffer and will be trying for a specialty weapon of the not serious type. The current list of participants is below.
- Mistress Aife ingen Chonchobair
- Mistress Alys Mackyntoich
- Mistress Amy Webbe
- Mistress Elizabeth Eleanore Lovell
- Mistress Katherine Barr of Cumberland
- Duchess Kiena Stewart
- Mistress Mercedes de Calafia
- Sir Tanaka Reiko
- Mesterno Tyzes “Zsof” Sofia
People who would like to participate should contact Lord Fergus Redmead or Mistress Catrin o’r Rhyd For. The fundraiser will be at Southern Region War Camp on June 28. More information can be found at the Laurels vs. Pelicans website
