Talewinds, December AS XXV "Share the Dream"
Unto the Good Gentles of Trimaris, At Crown Lyst on 1-5-91, Share the Dream will begin. This project is a joint effort between the Kingdom of Trimaris and the Children's Wish Foundation for terminally ill children.
At the event, a child will be made a prince of princess for a day. Special ceremonies and gift presentation will be planned for this child. This was done in Caid with great success and we hope to make it as great a success in Trimaris.
Soon our Seneschal will receive information about the child and a list of items needed for gifts. I would ask that as many groups as possible plan to present gifts or special honors to this child. We want to make this day a very special memory for both the child and the child's family. If you have ideas, gifts, presentations, please contact me. Gianetta de Remigio Welser
Talewinds, March AS XXV Unto the Good Gentles of Trimaris: Share the Dream was far more than a success, it was a fantasy come true for a very special child. As the day with Princess Victoria and her family progressed, repeatedly her parents would express their amazement at the kindness and generosity of our populace. They saw the respect and chivalry that was displayed towards not just her; but towards the whole family.
Your outpouring of love and gifts has had a profound effect upon her and all who met her. She has taken her gifts, and especially her beautiful crowns, to school with videos of her day, and to her church as well. She gets all of her gifts out each day just to look at them. Everyone who meets her also gets a detailed description of her day as a princess. There is no way I can ever express my appreciation and gratitude for all the kindness and special considerations that were given to Princess Victoria, not to mention the wonderous gifts you so freely gave. I guess her mother expressed the day best when she said that the day was a special blessing given to Victoria by wonderful people. Thank you Trimaris, Sincerely Gianetta di Remigio Welser
A copy of the letter received from Princess Victoria was printed in Talewinds:
"Dear King and Queen, and all the people in the Kingdom - I want to tell you all what a wonderful day I had. It was like a wonderful fairy tale. All of you in the kingdom have such big hearts to have made me such wonderful gifts. I have placed all of them around my room and my mom says it looks like a real princess room. Again, thank you for the honor of being your princess. My dress, my crowns, my shoes, my bunny, my sword and my sheild and all of the other wonderful things I will keep forever. Oh! also my lady-in-waiting, thank you all too. Love Princess Victoria"
The Herald's meeting at Crown Lyst will include a survey course on calligraphic styles and a presentation on the new Kingdom Scribes' Guild. We hope the new Order of Precedence will be ready.
Attention! Unto the populace of Trimaris, at Twelfth Night, the upcomming Crown Lyst, the Scribes Guild of Trimaris will be formally initiated. All persons intersted in the following areas - painting, calligraphy, papermaking, illumination, gilding, bookbinding, drawing, inkmaking, scrollmaking, printing, Runic inscriptions, Mayan Glyphs, heraldic emblazoning, Chinese Sumie calligraphy, Hebrew and Arabic calligraphy, Egyptian and Phoenician Hieroglyphs and Sumerian and Babylonian Cuneiform. If you are interested in joining the guild or starting a chapter within your local group or just interested in learning, call Lord Ambrosius Glasleathad.

Notice in the January Talewinds
Talewinds, January AS XXV SCA history has a new dimension - another "first"! Duchess Rowen Beatrice von Kampfer, KSCA, emerged victorious in Ansteorran Crown lists, on November 10th AS XXV. On January 26th, she will become the SCA's first Queen in her own right. The finalist defeated by Duchess Rowen was her lord, Duke Hecor Phillip Martel, KSCA. He will also make SCA history as the first Lord of the Rose. Duchess Rowen an Duke Hector are interesting, creative, articulate individuals. The forthcoming reign is anticipated with delight by their fellow Ansteorrans. At TFYC, the SCA's 25th Birthday Party, you'll meet both of these remarkable people. They are both active members of the TFYC Committee, although we expect that they'll be a bit busier than originally planned. You'll be welcome for years at Bardic Circles, wars and parties with your stories about meeting the first-ever SCA Queen in her own right, and the first Lord of the Rose!

In the Town Meeting/Curia, held at Coronation, a few items were brought up that bear repeating here. The first of these being our orientation of newcomers.

Much has passed since last did I report. A Laurel's Prize Lyst was held at Myrddin's Faire raising $440 for the Royal Fund. Consequently, the fund was able to cover nearly all the cost of the Crown's visit to Los Castillos del Oro. Prizes donated included a beautiful travel chest/table created by Master Geoffrey; a custom stained glass window by Master Erik; cloaks and liquers from Mistress Eglantine; an Elizabethian sweets pouch from Mistress Warinja; a box from King Treve as well as donations from Master Rurik, Mistress Cateline, Lord Bannach, Lady Laura de Botelesford, Lady Elfwyn, Lady Morgan, Duke Sir Merowald and many others. In fact, the outpouring of support was so great that we were able to provide prizes not only for the bidders, but for the fighters as well.
The winner of the lyst was Count Sir Haun, with second place honors going to Lord Ferris. Other combatants included Sir Gradheid, Sir Godfried, His Royal Majesty King Treve, Duke Sir Merowald, Sir Fredrich Kybert, Lady Ariel, Erin the Juggler and Lord Sean. It is also my pleasure to thank the Shire of Amurgorod for its donation of $160 raised from an auction held at this years Viking Foray.
