                      Foorde (MD)/ Sep 27-29
                      Siege of Glengary
                             In their thirst for Land and Glory the
                      English have turned to Scotland and in our
                      fair province  the vile swine have laid siege
                      to Caer Glengary.  Come help us defend
                      our ancestral rights to freedom from these
                        OR....bring aid to the English as we
                      squash the peasant uprising of these
                      sheepdipping Scots who allow vast areas of
                      useful land to be despoiled.  We must lay
                      the Castle of Glengary to waste.
                        We will be featuring a castle battle
                      with solid walls to fight over, around or
                      though.  Also planned is an actual bridge
                      battle over real, natural, running water. 
                      For Non-Combatants there are Arts and
                      Sciences competitions such as:  best and
                      worst uses for plaid, dancing, a sheep toss,
                      kilt rolling contest, mini-croquet,
                      shuttlecock, dancing  and a bardic circle as
                      well.  A feast will be held on saturday
                        The cost of all this is $3.00 per
                      person 16 years of age or older for the
                      entire weekend.  The feast shall be $5.00

                      Directions from anywhere:
                        Make your best way to I-81.  You
                      want WV exit 5, Inwood, Rt 51.  From
                      northbound turn left at the top of the ramp
                      and from southbound turn right.  Follow
                      SCA signs marking the way.  This is Rt 51
                      west towards Gerrardstown.  Make no turn
                      offs.  Be warned to observe the 35 mph
                      speed limit in the town.  Continue straight,
                      you will shortly be able to see the
                      mountainside.  At  the top of the mountain
                      turn left.  This is Rt 45 west.  Go down the
                      mountain, making no turn offs.  Turn right
                      at the Glengary Grocery.  Go 1.6 miles. 
                      Make a right turn between the Back Creek
                      Valley fire hall and Elementary school.  At
                      the end of the drive you will  see the site
                      and merely follow the gravel on around.

"Politically speaking, we're compelled by circumstances to resign ourselves 
to the unpleasant fact that 1996 isn't going to be a very good year for the 
cause of individual liberty. Not with the Democratic Fascist Party being led 
by a terrorist mass-murderer and his crooked wife, Lady Macbeth, the 
Socialist Republican Party opting to run a retarded zombie for President, and 
the Drool-chinned Stumblebum Party (oops, make that 'we' Libertarians) giving 
a spastic nod and a belch to an electoral cross between Werner 'EST' Erhard 
and Immanuel Velikovsky."            - L. Neil Smith
