Event information: 

Bain educated the masses to various period outdoor games and introduced us to Peerage Pie Throwing. Each of the pies were auctioned off to the masses, being bought to throw at the Peers. Mistress Jessica of Fearne Abbey fooled us all by bringing out her cheque book and asking "How much do you want" for the pie thus giving her the opportunity to throw it at the person of her choosing (who else but Ulfgar the Unspeakable). The pies were made of cream and had been forgotten in the hot summer sun and had gone quite rancid. (Evidently it took Cornelius two or so hours of washing his hair before he gave up on getting rid of the smell). Princess Isabeau was clever enough to ensure that she had her guardsmen to take her pie. Of course, the tradition that the autocrat (or the person organising the pie throwing) gets a pie as well was created. A great day was had by all.

Cooks Guild showed off their stuff headed up by Claudia de Bercy and Adeline de Montford.

Other interesting things of note:

This was Gabriel de Beaumont and Leofric Willoghby du Broke's first event and the day that Phillipe du Lac was in a car accident metres away from the site. It was also the day that the Mouse Warriors decided that Gabriel was not an *evil drug lord* and that Constanzia was allowed to see him.
