The Shire of Stierbach is pleased to invite one and all to their
annual birthday tournament. This year we will be camping at Log Cabin
Campgrounds near Winchester, VA., a veritable gem of an event site
with over 80 percent of the tent sites under the trees! The camp site
opens Friday at 3PM and closes on Sunday at 1PM. Come revel in the
woods with us and enjoy the music, dancing, fighting and feasting that
every Birthday should have! 

Fighting Activities:
A Torchlight Tourney on Friday night, Field Battles, Bridge Battle,
Melees and a Bull Fight to determine the "Champion Of Stierbach" will
be held on Saturday. We will also have Archery with a variety of
interesting targets to shoot at! We have some very lovely prizes for
the winners of all catagories! Favors will be handed out for the
fighters to bestow on the "one who inspires them". Authorizations will
begin at 9:30 AM on Saturday. 

A&S Activities:
There will be a Bardic Circle each evening, musicians are encouraged
to attend! There will be an A&S competition in the following areas:
Cordials, Edibles, Cookies, Armor, Leather, Cows, Calligraphy and
Illumination and Textiles. 

Judging will be Saturday afternoon and 2 judgeships will be "for sale"
at the event, a Judgeship for the Cordials and the Edibles Judgeship-
bring your coins or other barterables! Every attendee is eligible to
cast their vote in The A&S Popular Vote. Documentation will be judged
separately. All winners will receive special prizes. 

We will also be offering several classes in various arts for those not
martially inclined! Merchants are most welcome to come and sell their
wares, please contact the autocrat! 

Kids Activities:
There will be a Heraldic Cookie decorating contest and several kids
size games such as croquet and bocce, as well as others to choose
from, as well as the ever popular "Squirt" Fight where our children
get to arm themselves with their favorite water weapon and battle our
less well prepared fighters. Mid-afternoon Saturday will be our Young
Bullfighters Contest with prizes for "Style" and "Accuracy". 

(But wait! there's more!!!)
