Happy Imbolc!

2016 ImbolcIt’s IMBOLC…but what does that actually mean?  This is the time of year that we turn our focus to the spark of life, whether within ourselves or the earth.  It is this spark that creates a warm nurturing environment to support growth, preparing for the plantation of seeds. These seeds very well may represent our dreams and aspirations.   Take some time today to sit and think about whatever it is that makes you warm and fuzzy…and literally glow with happiness and excitement.
What makes you SHINE?

Entertainment: Viking Sumble

This year we have decided that we will be hosting a Viking Sumble which will be a POTLUCK event featuring a rotisserie.

A Sumble is derived from a Viking custom of boasts and toasts made the night before an expedition was launched. You do not have to wear a hat with horns while you do it, nor worship Odin, nor get into a longboat when you are done….but why not, it’s FUN!

A traditional Sumble consists of four rounds of toasts. The FIRST round is to Principles, those things that each individual thinks are important.  The SECOND round is to Heroes, real men and women living or dead that particularly inspire us. The THIRD round is of Boasts,  where each participant tells something that he/she has accomplished and is proud of. The FOURTH round is of Oaths, where each participant tells of something they are about to do.  *Note that the oath is something that the individual must have control over – you cannot set goals for somebody else here. There is a meta-rule for the oaths. If it is possible for you to aid another in fulfilling his oath without harm to yourself or your goals, you are honor-bound to do so.

Just to mix things up we will be including a FIFTH round to Roast, this is when a specific individual  is subjected to good-natured jokes at their expense intended to amuse the event’s wider audience. This was created as a mock counter to a toast.  Please take the jokes in good humor and not as serious criticism or insult. This round is intended to bestow honor in a unique way. Be aware that the SOTEF staff/Veterans are fair game, surrounded by friends, fans, and well-wishers, who can receive some of the same treatment as well during the course of the evening.

This is magickal hospitality at its best and is INCLUDED in your registration! Our entertainment for the feast will be our annual Bardic Competition. So start writing, singing, dancing, or preparing your choice of entertainment for the evening! We encourage everyone to help create the atmosphere and participate in the fun by dressing in costume. We are also looking for some volunteers, to help setup/cleanup, and serve great food/fantastic beverages to our rowdy horde.

Song, Poetry, Dance, Drama, Storytelling etc. Come and show off your talents.

The Viking Sumble & Bardic Competition will be on Friday night.
