===Persona History:===
In early 19th Century Holland, there was a man named Klaas Luinstra, who, with his wife Ida, owned a merchant vessel. They sailed throughout the Dutch waterways, originating from Leeuwarden, a city in the Frieseland region of Holland. (Fun fact: the Luinstra family arms features the Frisian Eagle, a sable two-headed eagle on an Or field that signifies the Holy Roman Emperor's favour towards a noble family in his service.)<BR>

In the Society, Klauss has taken a shining to the Musketeer style and format, but rather than focusing on the "protect the king" mentality found with the Three Musketeers narrative, he translates this into the culture that surrounds the Rapier community. With every aspiration of becoming a Cadet and eventually a member of the Order of the White Scarf, Klauss hopes to someday be a Queen' sman. Whether a rubber band musket is ever implemented into this plan is considered a shenanigan in the making.

Northen Border Skirmishes

Northern Border Skirmishes was a fantastic event! East Oklahoma is beautiful this time of year, but nothing is more beautiful than to see the people of Ansteorra in bright and hearty fellowship, crossing blades with smiles on their faces, and using a rubber chicken (hehe) to parry away said blades. Thank you, Facon du Pray, for your gracious gift, guidance, and glorious display at and after the Melee Tournament!

Their Excellencies of Northkeep, Baron Perrin de Beaujeu and Baroness Jehanne de Montauban allowed me the honour and privilege of being their Court Herald, which means I got to run my first official court! Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as I learned what to and not to do as an emergency stand-in Court Herald. This opportunity to learn and grow as a courtier is more valued than you know, even if I mispronounced some names ... some multiple times... and forgot myself on a few occasions. I certainly have room to grow in this form of service, and grow I shall. To your patience and grace, dear Populace and Excellencies, I not only praise, but extend my gratitude to you as extensively and wholeheartedly as this bardic heart may express.

A rousing and marvelous huzzah to my dear friends Grimbjorn Sigmundsson, Maryann Childress, Owen Ap Aeddan, and Cornelius Meriläinen: each of whom are as splendid and creative and each of whom performed splendidly and achieved victory in the fields of interest in which they participated.
