Bop Event-clearer directions

Poster: "Doug and Maria, Sven and Ginevra" <ginevra@bellsouth.net>

Greetings all,
 Border Vale Keep's Bop til You Drop event is little more than a week away.
After next Wednesday we will no longer be taking reservations for feast
(but contact me first), which is limited to 75.
  There is a clarification for the directions from Hwy 78/US1 into Augusta.
Augusta has a bad habit of giving roads 3 or 4 different names.  The Doug
Barnard Pwy is also called New Savannah Rd (as well as Hwy 56).  You will
need to take a left onto New Savannah Rd. from Hwy 78.  But whatever way
you come follow the signs for Bush Field.  There will be signs posted.

 				Bop 'Till You Drop

	On 27 March 1999 the Shire of Border Vale Keep will be hosting
anevent for those that just can't get enough fighting. Heavy weapons will
be done in a "Bear pit" with a twist. Winners of each fight will be awarded
2points, Loser will be awarded 1 point. And an additional point may be
awarded by the Marshal for any impressive action that takes place on
thelist field. So even if you lose you can win.  Fencers will be competing
in a "Triple elimination progressive weapon" tourney. Archers will have
achance to improve their skills and start on the new season IKAC scores.
Prizes will be awarded for 1st  place in heavy fighting, fencing and top
score for archery. Wooden Goblets made by Lord Connor MacFergus will be
awarded to winners of heavy fighting and fencing and a Quiver for archery.
There is cabin space available for 40 people and plenty of camping space.
The site is discreetly wet and no pets are allowed on site.  All
reservations must be postdated no later than 20 March 1999. Authorizations
will start at 12:00 and fighting will begin at 1pm. There will also be
childrenís activities.
	There will be an Arts and Science competition with two categories,
Open and Fighter accessories. 1st place in each category will also receive
Wooden Goblets.
	During feast a Bardic competition will be held. All Bards are
welcome to entertain our guest in the feast hall with songs, stories and
dance. Each guest will be given a token to present to the bard of their
choosing. During the desert course Bardic competitors are invited to
circulate through the hall to collect tokens from their admirers after all
performers have finished. The bard with the most tokens will be declared
the winner.
