A dirty and stained A4 sheet of paper, printed with purple images and text in a monospaced font. A logo including a sun, with an ocean wave cresting inside it, in a shape vaguely reminiscent of a tongue ringed by sharp teeth. A large headline reading Last Resort News Report with the tagline Where Else Would You Want To Go? and the date July 29th, Year 2
Body text, headline, in all caps: Hay, Be Careful!
Prathipaal would like to remind everyone that, though we all need privacy sometimes, we should also respect others. Specifically, if you go into the hayloft at night, be sure to put the hay back where you found it afterwards, and make sure it’s not piled up ready to fall on, for instance, a diligent and long-suffering stablemaster who is just climbing the ladder to check our hay stores. Luckily, no one was hurt this time, but please be considerate! We’re not here to interfere in anyone’s love life, but work place safety is always a high priority!
Headline in all caps: Late Midwinter
Speaking of interfering in love lives, our annual midwinter dance is finally here! What with us all getting the runs at the same time and then getting very into group work in the same room as the nice warm forge, event planning fell by the wayside a little, but your social committee is dedicated to making sure there’s always a fun event just around the corner! Plus, we promised that this would be an annual event, since we need something to look forward to in the cold winter nights! And so, this weekend will mark the second annual Midwinter Singles Night And (new column) Dining Hall Dance! (barns don’t have electricity…)
The kitchen is already working on a spread for the event, and we’ll have no less than three bands taking turns on the stage!
The Singing Singhs, of course, will be there, with a set of Old World love songs, including some duets by Tara and Frank, who met at last year’s Dance! The Scout Trio, Alice, Rangi and Nyala, will also be playing a selection of folk songs, including some fun songs to dance to! The third band will be a special treat, though: Frank, Tara and Davinder have been working with one of Frank’s family treasures, an antique instrument known as an electric guitar! Until now, an electric instrument hasn’t been that useful, but for the last few months, Davinder has been able to practise some Old World songs on one of the most famous instruments of their era, and with Frank on the drums and Tara on vocals, we’ll be able to hear some of the songs of our ancestors as they were meant to be played!
Don’t forget to sign up for speed dating and the date auction, both sheets are in the dining hall! Last year’s auction got a lot of vital work done and resulted in several lovely couples, so get to it!
We hope to see you all there, and having as much fun as we will be!
