Poster: balynar@juno.com (Daniel T Brandel)

Okay, it took me a while, but at the bottom of this is an Emerald joust
all text anouncement. Also, we have already done one Seneschal mailing,
so bug them for a copy of the flyer, and we will be doing another one in
about a weeks time that will include the various tournament rules, as
well as the A&S competion information and a few more other tidbits of
info.  Anyway, here ya go

Emerald Joust - A.S. XXXII

May 23-26, 1997
The Barony of Caer Mear and The House of The Red are proud to welcome all
good gentles to competition both marshal and fair.  Come to the rolling
hills of Maidens , Virginia for chivalry, song , dance, and an all around
good time! Join us for 4 days of fun and festivities!

The fun begins! The site opens at 1 p.m. Friday afternoon.

For those of  a competitive nature, there will be many different
challenges to whet the appetite, For Arts and Sciences minded people, a
Curriculum Vitae will be held in the feast hall. For heavies, there will
be a one hour grand melee, follow by the Emerald chivalry tourney.  
There will also be a Rapier tournament, as well as a test of skills for
the archers of the kingdom. All this will be followed by a fine, gourmet
style feast.

Kingdom Day!  For A&S, there will be a scroll display , As well as a
relic competition. For the relic competition, the Kingdom of Atlantia
challenges all Households, Shires, Cantons, Baronies, and College's to
produce a piece of their past for the viewing of all. These relics can be
anything, from a suit of armor to a rock hard loaf of bread,  as long as
there is a colorful tale or display to relate the relics importance in
the groups history...but please, people do not qualify as relics. For
martial activities, there will be an Emperor's choice tourney ( more
rules and information to come). For Rapier, the Queen's choice
tournament. A camboc tournament ( yes, with teams and such)  will be held
for the enjoyment of those in a team sports frame of mind, as well as a
bardic competition for those who wish to express themselves in song or
story. There will also be an auction of a wonderful tapestry in the main
feast hall. A great feast will end the events of the day.
