Some sparkly new events!

Hello all. The first thing I'd like to do is talk about the 2012 retreat. Yes, it's on.  This time it's a Summer retreat.  What we've decided to do is to 1) alternate between summer and winter so we can both do outdoor activities, and cozy up by the fire, and 2) to alternate locations. 2013 will be hosted by the ORS Rogue-Valley Chapter.

But this year's retreat will be held at Tilikum Retreat Center again. And it will be held on August 24, 2012 to August 27, 2012.  The theme for the masquerade is 'Myth and Mystery'.  Pre-registration is now open. Click the link under the image to go there.

Pre-registration is now open.

Another delightful event we have coming up is "Topsails & Tea".  The Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast will be hosting a lovely tea. It also provides for possible lodging for those who made a long voyage to take to the sea.  Tea is $15 per person and begins at 2PM.

After tea, we take a leisurely path to the port, where we will board either the Lady Washington or the Hawaiian Chieftain at 6 PM for a two-hour sail aboard a tall ship.  These tickets are $25 a person and can be purchased using the button below.  The Historical Seaport, home of the two tall ships, recommends that participants buy tickets for the evening sail as soon as possible, because the evening sails sell out very fast.



And our tried and true event comes into its 5th year.  The Pittock Mansion picnic, a wonderful social event.


We have more events in store, we came up with a good, full year of dress-up opportunities and costume fun, and we will be adding them in as venues are confirmed and dates are locked down.

Check back! And as always, join our facebook page for the most up-to-date ramblings.

hi: My daughter is a member and she and I would love to join this tea and tall ship event and want to purchase the ship tickets but you must select one of the two ships when you purchase. Has the society chosen one particular ship for the event and if so which one or does it not matter? Don't want to purchase tickets for the "wrong" ship!
