Come to Emerald Joust!

Greetings Atlantia e-denizens, from the Autocrat of Emerald Joust! (Two! 
Two!  Two tournies in one!)

Emerald Joust is shaping up to be one heck of an event.  There will be the
Emerald prize tourney on Saturday for Heavy and Rapier fighters, an Emerald
prize shoot for archers, an Emerald prize Adventure for children and TWO
Arts and Sciences competitions - Period encampment and 'Inexpensive
Alternatives' - for a total of ten prizes!

In addition there is the Baroness' open Arts and Sciences display, sponsored by
Mistress Thjora Arnkittelsdottir, Baroness Caer Mear, and a display of the
works of "Spun, Warped and Twisted" (SWAT) the new kingdom fiber arts group.

Following these activites there will be a feast of truely epic proportions
cooked by Lord Stephan of Caer Mear.  And if you can still move after that,
the evening will be devoted to dancing, singing and general merriment.

Sunday is the celebration of Atlantia's 15th Birthday.  There will be a Pas
de Arms tourney in the morning followed by the selection of the Queen's
Rapier Champion in the afternoon.  Archery will continue, probably with a
few rounds of IKAC.  The Barony will host more children's activities and the
Kingdom MOAS, Lady Dierdre of Boolteens, will host a display of Atlantia's
Finest arts and sciences.  The Great Officers of State will also display
items relavent to their offices.

The Kingdom of Atlantia will hold a fundraising auction this day. Everyone is
requested to donate an item or service to the auction and bring lots of
money to purchase them!  Items can range from small pouches to large boxes,
from trim to tents, from food to finery.  Services could be: offer to
caligraph a scroll, give a back rub, take down a tent, serve a meal, sing a
song, compose a compliment.  Use your imagination!

The delicious and delightful feast Sunday evening will be cooked by Lady
Tangwystl ferch Dafydd.  That evening the Lochmear Lawn Party will be held
on the List Field with Bocce Ball, croquet, liquid refreshments and diverse

And the event doesn't end there!  On Monday morning, Lady Suzanna Grey will
