Baker’s Dozen Donation Derbies

Hello AEthelmearc

The Baker’s Dozen Donation Derbies for the Reign of Timothy III & Gabrielle III are designed to provide largesse that will be used for tokens, prizes & gifts throughout the Reign. The Derby idea is aimed at showing off the talents & creativity of the populace.

The derbies will take place at all Royal Progress events. If any group would like to hold a local derby, it is greatly encouraged & appreciated.

The first derby will take place at the AEthelmearc A&S Faire & Queen’s Prize Tourney May 6, hosted by the Shire of Nithgaard.
