                         FIELD OF GOLD TOURNEY
                             April 27-28

        On the weekend of April 27th, the Incipient Canton of Cwmnewydd
invites one and all to Shrewwood Orchard to join in the fun on the Field of 
Gold.  Throughout this historical event, heavy fighters will be called upon 
to fight in teams as ambassadors of peace.  Rapier fighters will do their 
part for peace in an all weapons tourney.  In addition to these tourneys 
there will be archery, a knife, ax and spear throw and a games tourney. 
Come, all ye artistic folk and help us use our device in the most creative
manner possible.
        The site is a new addition to Mistress Rosatrude the Shrew's 
estates, i.e. private property,  Currently the site is extremely primitive,
so bring drinking water and solar showers, if you need them.  Sandles are 
not advised as there is poison ivy.  Bring implements of destruction if you 
want to clear a camp site in the woods.  There is also plenty of camping 
space in the open.  Site opens Friday, April 26 at 3 pm and closes on 
Sunday at 3 pm.
