Good day fair people! It's your friendly event steward with a couple of quick but important announcements for Yule.
#1: Smoking will be allowed off site only so if you need a quick nicotine or vape break, please walk to the street to enjoy it.
#2: No pets will be allowed on site during the event. Only certified service animals only please.
#3: The St Helens Armory is owned by the state, and is considered a dry site. This means absolutely no alcoholic beverages will be allowed to be consumed on site during the event. I cannot stress this enough, and do not want to hamper anyone's day, but I've been informed that if anyone is caught with alcohol during the event, they will be asked to leave.
We appreciate your assistance with this. Thank you, HL Ronan MacGuaire

Meats provided, with a potluck.
Lunch will be shredded chicken and smoked pulled pork for sandwiches. We will be providing buns, veggie trays and condiments, but will gladly take donations for chips, pretzels, etc. that can be served alongside it.
Feast will consist of Turkey breasts and legs that will be smoked while on site, as well as elk and beef shepherd’s pie. We will be doing the event as a traditional potluck, and have decided to separate out the food categories based on persona region instead of name. Please see the grouping below to find your persona nationality. If you wish to bring something other than this, go for it!
This event is all about bringing people together to share traditions, joy and merriment. If you have a recipe that has been served during the holidays in your house for generations, please bring it. If you can’t eat the main dishes and want to bring something to substitute for yourself, I would encourage it because I don’t want anyone to go hungry.
We can't wait to see you there!
