after the King’s Dinner 2018
Excerpt from The Baron’s Men Announcement:
Come one, come all and gather ’round the Boar’s Head Tavern in East Cheap for Master Shakespeare’s classic coming of age tale for our own Prince Hal- Henry IV, Part I. That kinda fun play you read your Senior year, but now with 100% more bawdy jokes, and the raucous humors you always wanted and suspected it to have — lakeside on a thrust stage under torchlight.
Including interludes of the rotund knight himself, Sir John Falstaff; interspersed with historic bits, courtly intrigue, and that guy they based Black Fish Tully on in Game of Thrones. To further pique your interest: thievery of a most unsavory character, a musical number in Welsh, a rebellion against the crown so big it includes Welsh and the Scots, dick jokes aplenty, and the battle of Shrewsbury where our Young Prince Hal finally takes on the mantle of a warlike Harry that could assume the port of Mars. Oh, and prostitutes.

“Sire! Why are the peasants revolting again? What are thy orders?”
Picture thyself in the Renaissance or Middle Ages
where thou dine with peasants, nobles, the King’s Court and the King!
Be witty and challenge the King,
yet be careful as he may be displeased and send thee to the dungeon!

Come have lunch with Richard Garriott de Cayeux exactly 10 years after he launched into Space on the ISS-Soyuz-TMA-13 mission
The Soyuz FG rocket blasted off from Site 1 at Baikonur Cosmodrome on Oct. 12, 2008 at 11:01:33 Moscow Time (07:01:33 GMT), carrying the Soyuz TMA-13 spacecraft. Onboard were members of Expedition 18 Russian cosmonaut Yuri Lonchakov, NASA astronaut Michael Fincke, along with an American space tourist Richard Garriott. Garriott, a 47-old computer game developer and a son of NASA astronaut Owen Garriott, reportedly paid between $30 and 35 million for a 12-day ride in space. Ref: ISS Soyuz TMA-13

Photos of 2018 Lysts on the Lake, by Winfield of PaxLair
I, Winfield, went to Lysts on the Lake for my first time this year (2018). I will DEFINITELY be there in 2019! This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I want another.
I got there early as people were still setting up (I sneaked in offering I was just a poor fisherman).
Horses, the horses! They were so gorgeous! Strong, spirited, ready for action!
Squires and Knights getting ready, practicing, preparing their armour. Fabulous!
I was lost in another time, another era, where chivalry reigned and people walked and talked with dignity and respect. No, they were not play-acting or role-playing. I met real professionals in the art of Jousting. Huzzah!
As I wandered around, I talked with anyone I could. I took many pictures. By the end of the event two days later, I felt I had made 25 new friends! And I shall see them again next year!
My friends, I am certain 2019 Lysts on the Lake will be magical. It will be held April 26-28, 2019. We can’t stay on Lord British’s property that weekend, but we can stay in hotels nearby. Evenings are pretty open after the Jousting, so we can do a lot that weekend.
I look forward to seeing everyone in April at the Lysts! Huzzah!
