Baronial Birthday and Investiture
5-7 September AS xxxij (CE 1997)

     The Barony of Marinus invite all to join them at their tenth Baronial
Birthday, to celebrate the Investiture of their new Baron and Baroness (or
will it just be Baron?).

     Didn't go to Pennsic?  Went to Pennsic, but didn't get to kill enough
people?  Join the Barony's fighters on the field in a point tournament in
which the new Baronial Champion will be chosen.  And should there be enough
interest, those fighters who need not hurry home may join in a
double-elimination tournament which will take place on Sunday morning.

     For those who do not fight, or wish a break from it, Saturday's
activities will also include a games tournament and the traditional
Eisteddfod.  Who will be Marinus' new Gamesmaster and Titled Bard?  And
artisans may bring samples of their work for the A&S display, to be hosted
by the Crefftwr of Marinus.

     A day board will be open to all.  In the evening, there will be a feast
of two courses, prepared by Lord Christian Broussard.  After the feast,
there will also, of course, be dancing in the hall (musicians are most
welcome!), and a bardic circle without.

     The rate schedule is as follows:

                        Off Board              On Board
                    Day Trip   Camping     Day Trip   Camping
            Adult   $ 8.00     $10.00      $13.00     $15.00

Children six to twelve will be half price; those five and under will be
guests of the Barony.  On-board reservations postmarked 26 Aug or later add
$3.00 per person.  (This late fee will be waived for those who have an
active-duty military ID.)  Remember - the only confirmed reservation is a
paid reservation!

     Send reservations and inquiries to the steward of the hall, Laird
Alasdair mac Iain of Elderslie (James Gilly, 3702 Newport Ave, Norfolk  VA
23508; phone 757 624-9563 before 9:30 pm).  Please include both SCAdian and
mundane names, and SCA membership numbers, for all persons attending,
including children.  Make cheques payable to Barony of Marinus/SCA Inc.

Lord Christian Broussard (Christopher Smith, 844 Hopwood Lane, Virginia
Beach  VA  23455; phone 757 490-1732 before 10 pm).  For a copy of the menu
and ingredient list, send an SASE to the head cook.

     Merchants are welcome; contact the steward for further information.

     The site of this camping event will be Pipsico Boy Scout Reservation,
