The Murmurs – Spring 2023 / AS 57

This is the Newsletter for the Barony of Aquaterra, Kingdom of An Tir

We have a new Seneschal, welcome to HL Sabina di Zorzi, and many thanks to Maighster Conal MacLaren for his service to the Barony. We also have an official applicant for Youth and Family Activities, Sorcha Magnusson.

January saw the return of Ursulmas as both a demo and an Event in our fair Barony!

Our attendance tally: 851 total adults, 130 youth/children; 431 were non-members.

We had excellent turnout for the fighting with 72 rapier and 138 heavy contenders.

We had a rich offering at Ursulwyck Village, and 17 merchants on site.
