BrokenBridge to hold “Deck the Halls of Valhalla” event on 1/7/17

Join us for an event celebrating the Viking holiday of Yule!

When winter comes, all men fear this will be the winter of that begins Ragnorok, the Fimbulwinter. Fimbulwinter, the mighty winter, the winter that will mark the battle of the gods, and the death of the world we know. As the days grew shorter, we all despair…but from despair comes hope! Hope reborn as the shadow of night gets shorter, hope that Ragnorok will never come! When the days start to get longer again, all Vikings get together and Deck the Hall​s​ of Valhalla! A celebration that the winter is starting to recede.

Proposed feast board:
Appetizers: Skyr, Birka bread, assorted icelandic cheeses, bread, honey butter, assorted fresh fruits and veggies
Side dishes: Pickled turnips, onions, and other veggies
Main dishes: Vegetarian porridge, Pickled Kale Lamb, and Boar Stew
Desserts: Hazelnut treats in lingonberry syrup

Mailing List

As was discussed at the last BB Commons meeting, I am starting the process of moving our mailing list off of Yahoo groups. If you are on the BrokenBridge yahoo group, you will be automatically added to the new mailing list (hosting on the East Kingdom servers – same as the Ostgardr mailing list) and will receive an email welcoming you to it.

I am going to arrange to have the Yahoo groups message history transferred over to the new mailing list but won’t be immediate and will take some time.

Hopefully, this will be a smooth and easy transition. I know a lot of people are tired of using Yahoo groups so it will be nice to not have to anymore.

If you have not been added to the mailing list, you can go to the link below to subscribe, or send an email to Webminister saying that you want to subscribe.

BrokenBridge Seneschal

Greetings unto our wonderful Canton of BrokenBridge,

As many of you know. This September My Lady and I will be stepping up as Viceregents. This means that I will also be stepping down as Seneschal of our Canton at that time. This has been a good year for us. I will continue to serve our great Canton until September 10th. At that time, another will step into the position. Some of you have known about this and who was to step in, but unto the populace this may be news. Who will be taking my place will be discussed at our next Brokenbridge commons meeting. We will also publish the minutes of those meetings to the populace who can’t make the meeting. Thank you all for your support this past year, I’ll never forget it.

In Service,
Lord Suuder Saran
Seneschal of Canton of Brokenbridge
