In the late spring, another herd of deer moved into Casa territory, causing the population to grow into late summer as babies were introduced onto the land. With the increase of prey competing predators have been spotted within the territory by our hunters and scouts, namely the odd wild cat and some brave hungry loners. The older canines know what dangers other predators can be and have noticed the decrease in vegetation along the deer herd routes, prompting Luca to take action. In response, the Lune has announced open season on hunting the deer and clearing the lands of potential dangers. A special dinner, named the Hunters Feast, will celebrate the bounty.

The Feast - Mandatory Attendance
To celebrate the health and safety of the pack, thanks to those who participated in the hunt and preparations for the feast, Luca has requested that all members of the pack will gather on September 30th to toast one another. To make this a special ocassion all members are asked to dress in their Cavalier warrior best, taking care to dawn their rank cloaks. The dining room will be decorated with care, and food prepared by all those in Casa who wish to help. Alcohol will be allowed for the night, though members would be wise not to go overboard in front of the Lune during such an occasion. During the feast members will sit according to rank, with the Lune at the head of the table surrounded by the Council, followed by the Brotherhood, then Officers etc, and ended with Cadets and youths. Members should take care in their appearance and arrive in a timely manner, or risk ridicule by their peers.
OOC Members are encouraged to have independent threads set during the dinner, as members will be allowed to mingle before and after the main course and toast. Why not take this opportunity to gossip, chat, and drink! A feast like this is the perfect time to get in the good books of the Council and Leadership, to view who has made movement in the ranks (or not!), and try to learn about the budding relationships among your peers. That being said, only one post to the main event is required. If you can not post due to OOC reasons please contact a Leader ASAP with your reason so we may assume the character is present for you!
