Lunar New Year Announcement

Lunar New Year
Dun Carraig
28 January, 1995

	The Barony of Dun Carraig and Clan Inazuma invite you to dust off 
your kimonos, gather up your chopsticks and join us at our Lunar New Year 
celebration to usher in the Year of the Boar.  The site for this event is 
St. Mary's Ryken High School in Leonardtown, MD.  The site opens at 11:00 
am and closes at 11:00 pm.  The site is WET.

	The event's activities include: Target Archery, Heavy Fighting 
with Japanese or compatible weapons (Katana / Great Sword, Two Sword, Pole 
Arm or Spear), a Boasting Competition for the fighters and archers (in 
which they state he superiority of their skill, the nobility of their 
training school, etc.), Poetry Competition (the traditional Zig-Zag Waters)
and a Costuming Competition for best Kimono.

	A raffle will be conducted to benefit our Barony's newsletter 
(Clyffe Notes);  among the items in the raffle will be a Long Bow.  There 
will also be a Bake Sale with lots of goodies prepared by some of Dun 
Carraig's finest bakers.

	A delectable Oriental and Far Eastern feast will be prepared by 
Mistress Minowara Kiritsubo.  Bring a "throw pillow" to sit on as we will 
be dining at low tables in the traditional Japanese fashion.  Facilities
