Valentinstag, or the Valentine Revel, was held on February 19, 2000. The Day Event was curtailed due to Inclement Weather and Unforeseen Difficulties with Antwerp. His Majesty, never to be detained by such a paltry thing as a Lock, devised a Clever Plan to enter Atwerp anyway. Unfortunately, Mundane Authorities arrived and, taking Exception to Siegfried’s Ingenuity, necessitated the removal of the party to Hecksher Park, whereupon the Queen of Love Championship Tourney was held, and in which Prince Sir Thor, God of Thunder, captured victory.
The Evening Event was a Feast held at VFW 2225 in Islip. The guests partook of Cheeses, Bread and Honey Butter, and a cold collation of Carrots and Melon as appetizers while settling into the comfortable confines of the tavern-style hall. The main course consisted of Lemon Chicken, Honey-Roasted Ham, Seasoned Roast, Baked Potatoes, Roasted Potatoes, Corn, String Beans, and a Green Salad.
The company was treated to Master Dankwert’s rendition of the popular song “Glory” and amused by the antics of Alberich the Court Jester.
Desert was a buffet of Shortbread, Various Cookies, Saga’s Killer Brownies (favorite of His Majesty!), and Fruit. The company was called to order to assemble for Court shortly after dessert was served.
King Siegfried thanked Lady Syn for her tireless efforts as Autocrat of the Event, and also recognized the work of Alberich as Feastocrat, as well as the assistance of Sir Rudiger and Saga.
Skuld and Saga presented the finished Eihwaz Banner
Thor was recognized as “King of Love” and crowned his Lady Sif as “Queen of Love”
Thor and the Legion of Thunder accepted and accoladed Roland as Squire
Dragon Mage Marlineus offered his filk “Livin’ La Vida Uber” in tribute to Sif as Queen of Love
Court closed, and the guest relaxed and discussed what to do for an afterlurk.
Vivats to the Autocrat and her Assistants for a lovely affair!
