Greetings unto the Known World from Lady Margherita Battistina, Dean of the
Pennsic School of European Dance!

The magnificent and longstanding Pennsic Grand Ball will be changing this
year, based upon your input and votes from last fall's survey.  Therefore,
to give everyone fair opportunity to practice their dancing and prepare
their clothing, we are announcing these changes early and widespread.  I
apologize to all who will see many duplicates of this message.

First, be it known that the Grand Ball of Pennsic 43 will be a masked ball.
 Don your finest clothing and a lovely mask and join us for a night of
decadence, disguise and dancing (masks not required).  To top it all off,
there will be a prize for the attendee who best displays kingdom heraldry
in your clothing.

Second, be it known that the Grand Ball is moving... in day and in
location.  Based on your votes, the Grand Ball will be on the second Monday
of war, this year the fourth day of August.  In addition, the Grand Ball
will be held in our Dance Pavilion, within the University complex (no more
concrete floor!).

Third, be it known that the set list has been decreed as follows:
Set 1:  Gathering Peascods, Montarde Branle, Bizzaria d'Amore, Petit
Vriens, Hide Park, Petit Rose, Official Branle, Contrapasso, a Pavan &
Galliard
Set 2:  Black Alman, Villanella, Hearts Ease, Rufty Tufty, Gelosia, Pease
Branle, Chirantana, Goddesses, Piva
Set 3:  Ly Bens, Gracca Amorosa, Horses' Branle, Rostiboli, Parsons
Farewell, Madam Cecilia Alman, Amoroso, Whirligig, Cassandra Branle,

Set 4:  New Boe Peep, La Castellana, Jenny Pluck Pears, Anello, Lorayne
