Mists Fall Investiture

Saturday November 21st, 2015
Cupertino, California
Their Highnesses Prince Alfar and Princess Eillis do cordially invite you to witness the Investiture of Their Heirs. A marvelous feast to celebrate Them will be made by Flidais ni Eitigen.
Attention Mists Escort/Guard Alumni !
The old Mists baldrics will be auctioned off at Mists Investiture. Funds raised will be used for new Mists regalia. Baldrics will be on display in the hall, please come take a look. All are welcome to bid. Auction will take place during the break between first court and investiture court.
Competitions will include:
Silver Spoon: Fermented or Preserved Savories - pickles, cured meats, cheese, mustards, etc. based on period recipes. The competition is judged by the competitors.
Practical Science: Scabbards
Performing Arts: Instrumental piece
Working on something you don't want to get dirty when showing at tourneys? Show it off here! Bring your recently finished or still in progress work to display in the hall.
Saltatoris Nebulorum competition dance: Rostiboli Gioioso 
You do not need to know the dances to participate. They will be taught at the event until everybody feels reasonably confident in their new skills. Once you have a basic grasp of the dance, all you need display to win are the cardinal virtues of dance: Poise, Confidence, Enjoyment, and (of course) Flirting!
More information available soon on the Mists website
Tickets for the feast will be on sale by mail from the Autocrat, and must be purchased in advance. Make checks payable to “SCA – Principality of the Mists.”
