Archery and War Collegium 12-14 May '95

Greetings unto the Merry Rose from Tirloch! The harried autocrat,
Hreodbeorht, has asked me to post this announcement to the group about
the upcoming event. Why is he harried? He and his nice lady wife,
Tehair, have just moved from VA to MD. They are now home owners with a
mortgage as well as now dealing with the US Postal Service for
forwarded mail.

Here is Hreodbeorht's announcement:
