YULE TOY TOURNEY - JERUSALEM
December 8-10, 2017
Table Rock Retreat and Conference Center
125 Bethany Cove Dr., Pickens, South Carolina 29671
For the past year, the populace of Nottinghill Coill has been on a crusade to discover new lands and cultures. After many months the final destination is at last before us - Jerusalem!
The Barony of Nottinghill Coill would like to welcome all who would join us in discovering the wonders that have been found - the arts, the beauty, and the adventure that she holds within her borders.
To join us as we bring our crusade to a triumphant end, we only ask that you bring a new, unwrapped toy as your entry fee. Once again, we will be collecting toys that will be donated to the Country Santa charity. The Country Santa Program collects toys for needy children across the upstate of South Carolina. For the last 12 years, we have been able to bring thousands of toys, clothes and food to needy children and their families! All of this due to the generosity of those that have attended this event in the past years. Help us hit our goal of 1,000 toys for this year!

Nottinghill Coill Largesse:
Our A&S Champions are coming together to offer a competition to fulfill the largesse needs of the Barony. Baron Lucien and Baroness Brig regularly give gifts to our neighbors and our
sovereigns on special occasions, like Coronations, Investitures or Baronial Birthdays. You are encouraged to use colors other than green & gold as these will end up being gifts for our
neighbors or sovereigns! All entrants must create a half-dozen (6) of the same type of item based on the theme that are suitable for largesse.
Items need not be documented. The winner will be selected by Baroness' choice.
The winner gets to select one item from each of the other competitors... So 12 entries means the
winner gets 11 prizes!
The rest of the items entered into the competition will be donated to Their Excellencies, Nottinghill Coill, as Largesse.
