Spring Carnival (Roxbury Mill)

     Greetings to all the denizens of the Merry Rose.
     There was a small typo in the April ACORN on the announcement for 
     Roxbury Mill's Spring Carnival. A tab is missing from the adult price 
     list and it has been causing some minor confusion. Below I have posted 
     the announcement for clarification. I would appreciate it if you could 
     circulate this as best you can.
     In addition, I am interested in experimenting with the practice of 
     e-mail reservations. So feel free to post me here or at my wife's 
     account (meraud@access.digex.net). I'll let you know after the event 
     if the experiment was successful.
     Break  out your spring best, a carnival has come  to  town.
     The Incipient Shire of Roxbury Mill (sponsored by The Barony
     of Lochmere) invites one and all to
                            Spring Carnival
     on  22  April  at  the  Laytonsville  VFD  in  Laytonsville,
     Maryland.   Join us for:  Palio races, merchants, workshops,
     dancing,  children's activities, fighting (armored  combat),
     more  fighting  (duello), and an obscure local  game  called
     cambok.   The  festivities will be followed by a scrumptious
     feast  prepared  by Lady Ciera Lawan and,  of  course,  more
     dancing.   The  site will open at 10 am and close  at  11pm.
     The  hall is wet but the grounds outside are not!   No  open
     flames in the hall.
