Event details

As winter turns to spring, the world awakens once again, and their Excellencies, Jonathan and Teresa, Baron and Baroness of Settmour Swamp, invite one and all to attend their annual celebration of the Thawing of the Mud.

Please join us from the comfort of your very own sofa on Saturday, March 20th beginning at 12pm for this virtual event.  The day will include a variety of both live and asynchronous activities. 

Live Events:
“Who in the Known World?!” Kickoff Event
We will begin the day with a live broadcast “game show” type event featuring our current Baron and Baroness Jonathan and Teresa battling it out against our incoming Baron and Baroness Orlando and Charis.  This event is not to be missed and will be streamed via Facebook Live.  Please join our “studio audience” on Facebook.  Their Excellencies may need your help.

Arts and Sciences Display and Competition
Afterwards, our Mistress of Arts and Sciences Elizabeth Talbot alongside our new and shiny, incoming Baron and Baroness Orlando Sforza and Charis Accipitre will host an A&S Competition and Display via Zoom.  The theme is "The Anticipation of Spring".  You will be able to display images of your items and they will ask for some brief documentation.  You will be asked to join us on the East Kingdom Zoom to share your work with our incoming Baronial couple.  In order to help us organize this process, we have created a Google form.  Please fill out this form to let us know you are interested in competing or displaying and to help us organize documentation.
