              27 - 29 September, 1996

The Canton of Hawkwood was blissfully relaxing after a hard summer's work.
harvest is in, the weather is pleasant BUT THOSE THIEVING SCOTS ARE
AFTER OUR CATTLE!!!  Come help us defend our stock from the MacGregor Cattle
Raiders and Barn Burning!!!

THE SITE: The site will be Camp Tatham in Old Fort, N.C.  This is a Boy Scout
Camp located in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains.  The site will open at 5:00
p.m. on
Friday, September 27 and will close at 12:00 on Sunday, September 29. It is a
mountain site with a dormitory, cabins (8 people minimum), showers, and some
space (indoor facilities are first come, first served).  There is a lake and
a sliding rock-no
lifeguard will be on duty. This is a DRY site.

ACTIVITIES: Team fighting (heavy and rapier); A&S competitions (or at least
version of them); children's activities; swimming; feast; AND AFTER FEAST --
ADULTS play children's games, like Red Rover and Blind Man's Bluff!!!

FIGHTING/RAPIER: Heavy and Rapier will alternate running the cattle raid/barn
burning scenario. Each will require teams of five fighters or duelists and an
archer. Each
team will get a chance to both attack and defend the barn.

A&S COMPETITIONS: Scottish themes abound!  Best Tavern Song (PG-13 please);
Best Legs in a Kilt; Best Scottish Accent 

THE FEAST: Feast is limited to 100 gentles. Cooks are Lady Deirdre Fletcher

except drinking
vessels.  Please contact Lady Deirdre (704/667-5361) for dietary concerns.

THE COST: The cost of the event is $12.00 On-Board; $6.00 Off-Board; $4.00
Children under 12 are guests of the Canton, but we must have a reservation
for them.

PARKING: The parking situation is challenging. When you approach the site, a
team of
gentles will assist you with immediate unloading. Then, one of your party
must move your
vehicle to the designated parking area at once. Bring a flashlight if you
will be arriving
after dark.

MERCHANTS: Merchants will need to contact the autocrat prior to the event to
arrangements and will need to bring their own tables.
