A Gentle Hunt


Baron Cadell Random ap Hubert

Here is one which I revise periodically (this version was done at Queen's Birthday last November). I run off copies, take to event (with supply of pens), get youths to find people matching the description. I usually have a token prize for everyone (Hersey's Kisses or the likes), and a grand prize given in court for first finisher. The contest teaches kids a little bit about the SCA as well as getting them to meet different people at an event. Watch out, Nataliia's elder daughter is a ringer at this game...

Rules:

For 22 of the below listed items (of 25, so you may pass on 3 items of your choice), find a gentle who meets the specified qualification. When possible use the Scadian name. You may not use your own name and may only use other gentle's name ONCE on your list. You MUST get the permission of the person prior to using their name. Those listed may be called upon to verify that they satisfy the particular requirements of the search. Use utmost courtesy & Enjoy this modest quest.
