Barony of Flaming Gryphon members to wear subdued livery!
Yes, they really are. The subdued livery represents military camouflage since the barony’s charitable efforts this year are for the Wounded Warrior Project
The Wounded Warrior Project (website: www.woundedwarriorproject.org) is a national organization whose vision is “to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.” Their purpose is three-fold: to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members,to help injured service members aid and assist each other and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
On Monday Flaming Gryphon fighters will wear subdued livery while participating in the Armored Town Battle which begins at 1 pm on the main battlefield. They will be accepting donations at that time.
On Wednesday, beginning at 10 AM, small groups from the Barony will be going from camp to camp asking for donations. They will also be asking for donations in the central, public areas of the War, and someone will be “at home” if you would rather leave your donation at their camp, which is located in W07 at the foot of Runestone Hill.
Last year just under $3,000 was collected for fighting breast cancer during a similar campaign which involved members of the Barony wearing pink and their fighters wearing pink tabards while taking part in one day’s war point battle. They hope to do even better this year.
The Wounded Warrior Project was selected as this year’s charitable effort because there are some members of the Barony directly involved with the Project. The Barony did some research and found that 82 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to the people the charity was formed to help.
Questions about the collection can be directed to Baron Dafydd Blaidd at the baronial camp.
