TRIAL by FIRE
Although an SCA event has but one Autocrat/Steward, it is impossible to actually run any event without the help of so may others.
It has been my greatest honor to serve as Autocrat for Trial by Fire and Royal Archer and a wonderful joy to have so many volunteers to assist and guide both me and this event. This chosen family I have found myself connected to is a source of immense delight. Thank-you Atlantia.
The following is (I hope) a list of those who spent their time, skill, imagination and strength to make TbF/RA an enjoyable event.

Thanks to Lady Scholastica Joycours and Lord Sfi who were our two Trial contestants. Wonderful and tasty food, as always.
I am very grateful to Their Majesties King Cuan and Queen Adelhait and His Highness Prince Abran for attending the event. Your presence in the barony could be considered decorations on an already well-icinged cake. It is a joy to serve you.
The event web site will remain up until the fee expires. I plan on publishing the results of the day as well as the recipes from Trial.
My thanks to anyone whom I have not yet mentioned, please forgive an old lady brain and let me know so your contribution may be noted and lauded.
