|The Queen Elizabeth I Society
meets annually in the Spring in
conjunction with the South Central
Renaissance Conference. We are the most
enjoyable conference in the continental
U.S. - join us in Omaha in 2013! This past
year we met in New Orleans, for an
especially festive meeting- as usual, the
highlight was the auction of highly prized
Elizabethan commodities , which fetched
a whopping $800 for the Queen's coffers.
Thanks to Arlen Nydam for his
spectacular photos (the rest, alas, are
mine!) Arise, Sir Arlen!
