Ladies Day - March 27th - Dun Carraig

Poster: SCAVard@aol.com

Yes, it's time again to BUG everyone about our event. <g>

If you've been following the saga to-date, you know that due to an unfortunate
accident, our event flyer did not make it into the March =Acorn=.  However,
the Kingdom Chronicler's office has done a superb job of helping us get word
out about our event through several other channels.  My thanks for Rabah and
Gwen for this.

They have given me their leave to reprint the flyer to this forum "as
necessary" (which admittedly is a dangerous choice of words <g>) to ensure
that word is circulated.  Be assured, gentle friends, that our event *is*
official, it has *not* been canceled, and we're going to have a LOT of fun!

The event I speak of is Dun Carraig's "Ladies' Day" Tournament, to be held
just across our Potomac river in the Crown Lands of King George County, VA.
It's conveniently located just off Rts 3 and 301, between our friends in Caer
Mear and Stierbach.  There will be fighting (armored and schlager), there will
be authorizations, there will be poetry, there will be a favor judging
contest, there will be dancing, an A&S competition, and a hearty feast!

The feast.  Oh my, is there ever gonna be a feast!  Wholesome, simple, tasty,
and LOTS of it!  (And if you happen to like garlic, you're gonna be in for
quite a treat.)  And don't worry that the feast is being prepared by a guy
named "Buzzard".  If you've seen my shadow, you *know* that food and I are no
strangers. <g>

If you've not yet sent in your reservations, please do so, or at least contact
our dear autocrat and let her know you're coming.  Due to the unfortunate
circumstances surrounding our event announcement, getting as many pre-regs as
possible will help soothe our autocrat's worried soul.  Also, you guarantee
that you'll be on-board, as feast is limited to only the first 80 registrants.

The flyer is below.

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.  (Unescorted Lords and Ladies who wish to
participate in the Tourney are encouraged to contact the Autocrat.)
