The Huntington Renaissance Fair was held on May 26 & 27. Heavy rain on Saturday forced the Provincial Champions Tourney to be fought on Sunday; the winner was Kazimir of Ostgardr (it should be noted that due to the inclement weather, he was the only fighter eligible for the tourney who showed up – but he was not given the position by default; he was made to run a gauntlet of all former Champions present to prove his worth).
At the Riding of the Marches in Northpass on June 2, Lady Brianna McBain was inducted into the Order or the Seadog for her contributions as autocrat and Seneschal.

The Viceroy, Vicereine, and Provincial Seneschal are those authorized to besotw it. The first recipient was Alastair of Clan Campbell (from Rusted Woodlands), the event’s Head Chef.
