Feast of the King's Tax --Review--
Fighting began a little late, as for usual Markland Standard Time (MST). Sir Snorie Outhausescreamer (Knack) became Spring Queen's Champion for a second time. Critter won both Peasant's Champoin as well as the bar fight. In Tug of War, rag-tagTeam Modo Awesome lead by Rusty of OGL and DK of Scarlet Cross beat Team Lost Boys in a double elimination tournament. Horse shoes saw the up-set of previous two year victors ex-king Kennneth (Todd) and Felix the Crab (Cory) by old S.C. Warlord Franky and his cousin AJ, who might I add, played amazing bag pipes for us.
Inside, the feast was a lot of fun. Natalia (Gina) ate for free due to a song she sang about ours truly. Believe me when I say I knew nothing about it; brought a tear to my eye. Lorretta sang a wonderfuly 18th century style song she wrote herself, as well as the pirate lasses of Crimson Coast, Catalina (Deddie) and Sohipa also sang a beautiful duette. Poor Herman (Ted) the German was interrupted by me during his performance and received half a free meal on my behalf. The lovely ladies of Desert Lotus Belly Dancing Troupe floated along the floor leaving us all wanting more. As much as we walk the walk, seems most Marklanders, including myself, forget how to dance the dances. Though that didn't stop us from enjoying the Maltese and Horse's Brawl. I can say there wasn't much in the way of left overs so the changes to the menu must have gone over well. I know the ice cream with "Apple Stuff" was a sucess.
Thank you everyone who attended and I will see all of you again soon.

Hospitallers Conquer Jamestown
Despite several members cancelling at the last minute, three intrepid Hospitallers made the trip down to Jamestown for their second Military Through the Ages. The weather was warm and sunny during the day, which was very MTA-like, although they still managed to squeeze in some rain on Saturday night. The Hospitallers made a big impression this year. Even though we are only in our second year of existence we managed to come in first place in three out of four competitions:Three Blue Ribbons
Best Cooking (cold steel category)
Best Camp (cold steel category)
Best Costume (overall)
Thanks to Natasha, Steve, and Sean for their hardwork and determination in making the Knights Hospitaller camp a success. Come see us at Marching Through Time
, April 19th or 20th.
Death & Taxes Review
Great start to the War Season. Fighting was intense and fun. Long scenarios and good friends that we haven't seen since the last Head Clan hosted event (Fall War). It was COLD but the fires were a blaze and if you stopped at every fire it was easy to visit with the different camps (minus HVD which was off the beaten path, but was worth visiting with). A small memorial was held for Chet and all who we had lost in the past year. The sprits we high and everyone had a great story to tell about a very caring man.
Hope to see you all at the next event!
He Will Be Missed
