Bhakail Yule Revel
December 2, 2006 - Barony of Bhakail

We welcome you to a good old-fashioned Bhakail Yule! The Barony of Bhakail is the fourth oldest barony in the East Kingdom, having been founded in September of A.S. VI (1971). In our 35th year, we are looking to commemorate all that has come before and to celebrate a bright and wondrous future. One of our hopes is to gather together memorabilia from Bhakail's illustrious past, as a display on where we have been. There will also be a special A& S Competition for the youth of our Barony.

Our site is Saint Mark's Church in Frankford, where from eleven in the morning until eleven o'clock in the evening, we will make merry with good friends, dancing, music and more. To sate your hunger, a sumptuous (and authentic) Northern European feast will be prepared by Master Huen Damebrigge of Wychwood, proprietor of (Click here for a menu and ingredient list.)
The Barony will also hold its annual competition to select the next Baronial champion of Arts and Sciences. The site is damp, and empties should be taken out with you.

A day board is included in the site fee; limited parking is available in the church lot and adjacent lots as well.
