(event report) The mystical grail known as the Wyvernwood Chalice embodies within its ensorcelled substance the well-being of lands and people of Wyvernwood. The gift of a powerful Archmage to our gentle patron-Wyverness, Celebrin silver-Web, the Chalice must periodically have its powers renewed through combat mortal in a tourney of heros. He who wins the tourney is by right the Defender of the Chalice, and drinks of the Wyvernwood Chalice of Heros. Thus, from the earliest days of Wyvernwood has it been.
On 1-15-83, AS XVII, a doughty band of warriors met at the encampment of Silver Lake near the Road of Heroes (I-75) to the north of Wyvernwood to choose in combat with mortal rattan who among them should become Defender of the Chalice. After great striving, the fell-handed Aaron Breck Gordon, Warlord of Trimaris, bested his worthy opponents to stand forth triumphant as the true Defender and Hero of the Chalice. He and his most fair and gentle lady Linnea Lorainne (in whose name and by whose inspiration he had indeed performed his mighty deeds) drank from the original Wyvernwood Chalice, of which only victorious heros and the ladies that have shared their victories have drunk. Thus, until the powers of the enchanted grail again wane and call out for renewal, the valorous Aaron shall stand forth as Defender of the Chalice of Heros.
In the second list of the day, warriors competed for the honor of their ladies and the rich prize of a silver goblet. Fierce indeed was the combat; rattan did thwack and helms did ring, the dust did dowse combatants and spectators alike as it rose from the trampled battle-sward. At last Wyvernwood's valorous Lord John Urquhart, called Shark, staggered forth from the battle-murk to claim the glistening prize for his dark-haired lady the fair Teena.
Attendance at the tourney was 45 persons, with perhaps a few more who escaped counting. 'Twas in good sooth a mortal cold week-end for these southern climes, and this did in truth repel many who would else have attended. Your humble chronicler speaks from experience, as I myself came only at the last in time to behold the gallant Lord John stagger on and off the field to victory in his magnificent (and heavy) Maximilian plate armor. Among the nobles in attendance were his grace Duke Merowald, Lord Sylveaston, who did us the honor of fighting in the second list. Further, Wyvernwood was most deeply honored by the presence of their Highnesses, Prince Guthrum and Princess Ursula of Trimaris, who braved the cold to be with their devoted subjects.

Wyvernwood Baronial Council
A baronial council and fighter practice was held in a small public park adjacent to the home of Lady Elina Ragnarsfostra on Saturday, February 19, 1983. The council was attended by approximately 30 gentles, and was distinguished by the number of royal personages in attendance. HRH Prince Verron von Groth, heir to the throne of Meridies, honored the day with his presence, as did Their Royal Highnesses Prince Guthrum and Princess Ursula of Trimaris. The major event of the day was the SCA wedding of Wyvernwood's fair lady Arielle Thiase Evard to the noble Lord Stephan Danefalk. This happy occasion was shadowed only by the knowledge that the gentle Lady Arielle would be leaving Wyvernwood to accompany her new lord to his home in the fair lands of Westerness, specifically to Utah. The council was followed by a rousing fighter practice in which several swords were broken and numerous bruises and thumps administered. The assembly broke up shortly after sundown, it being too dark to continue further.Respectfully submitted Erich M.F.W. von Rabenskalt un .von Kampf, CWC, Historian Wyvernwood

Come join us for a day of the Gulf and the beach, for the fun of the Pixie Dig, for the revelry or for all the things that have made Glymmerholde Retreat Revels unique. Or, if none of this impresses your doltish and well beaten brain (fighter-types take not) come for the Southern Club Social.
Fah to those who declare Club Socials non-period, the club is as old as the cave man. Such clubs were in frequent use when South still meant Ethiopia. Glymmerholde boasts not less than a half dozen eater, inexperienced, and substantially unbeaten young dandies who are dying to whet their skills, so.. For those wishing to teach hard lessons of valor to our young fighters, there will be practice and open melee from 10 am to 5 PM Saturday. For those wishing the best for their hopefuls, we present the Party Favor - Favor Bee as well. For those who consider combat club-fests neither good participation nor spectator sport there will also be chess and the beach..and don't forget the Pixie Dig. Autocrat Arven AtWater.
