Ladies' Day update

Poster: SCAVard@aol.com

A not-too-subtle reminder about Ladies' Day, happening on March 27th.  Though
the flyer was accidentally un-included in the March =Acorn=, the event *is*
happening, the Kingdom *does* recognize it at being official, and reservations
*are* being taken as we speak.

The Tournament itself is interesting, as it is comprised of three parts.  The
fighting part is pretty easy to understand, as there will be chances for
armored AND schlager fighters to score their points.  ***IMPORTANT!***
Schlager authorizations WILL be made at this event!

The other two parts, ah, THAT'S where the Tourney gets interesting!  For you
see, you must be fighting FOR someone, and that someone is very much involved
in the other two parts of the Tourney.  There is the favor-making competition,
where your "someone" enters into competition the favor that he/she has made
for you. (Each favor is judged by our panel of experts, who have managed to
keep their scoring criteria a carefully-guarded secret for a very long while.)
And then there's the poetry competition, where each figher composes and
RECITES to his/her inspiration the poem they have created.

Each part of the Tourney (fighting, favor, poem) counts one-third toward the
overall wining couple.  There are also seperate awards for the winners in each

Unescorted Lords and Ladies who wish to participate in the Tourney are
encouraged to contact the Autocrat, Arianwen ferch Angharad (Rebecca Stidam),

Mar 27th - Ladies' Day Tourney Barony of Dun Carraig, King George, VA

The Barony of Dun Carraig invites all good Gentles to attend their Ladies' Day
Tourney, to be held in the Crown Lands adjacent to the Barony's southern
border. There will be fighting for heavy weapons and schlager beginning at
11am. For those inclined to more genteel entertainment, there will be an A&S
competition and dancing throughout the day and into the evening.

The Tournament: will be a three-part competition to include Best Poem, Best
Favor, and Best Heavy Weapons/Best Schlager fighter. (1) Poem: Each fighter
must compose and read an original poem in honor of the one who inspires them.
(2) Favor: Each fighter must have a favor created for him or her by the one
they fight for. As these take time to create, they should be made in advance
of the Tourney. (3) Fighting: There will be a Double Elimination Tourney for
both the heavy weapons and schlager. Following the single-man Tourneys will be
three-man team Bear Pit heavy and schlager competitions. Bring a team or pick-
