Ladies' Day Approaches! (March 27th)

Poster: SCAVard@aol.com

Just think, one more week and you won't have to swim through reminders about
our Ladies' Day event!  Hoo-bah!

I just received an email from someone NOT on the Merry Rose who did not know
that Ladies' Day was still happening.  Yes, yes, a THOUSAND times, yes!  Dun
Carraig's celebration of the beauty of spring and the joys of love will
happen, rain or shine, this Saturday in King George, VA.  Our event flyer is
appended below, and can also be found online at

Information is also available via the recently re-hosted Dun Carraig baronial
website at http://duncarraig.atlantia.sca.org/events.htm (thanks Kevin!)

As mentioned in previous postings, we are expecting Feast to sell-out.  There
will be only 80 on-board diners, but the Autocrat tells me that there are
still some seats available.  The tentative schedule of events is:

10 am - Site Opens
11 am - Authorizations
        Poetry Contest
        Tourney Begins  (Armored, Schlager, Bear-Pit)

4:30 pm - Court
5 pm - Feast
8 pm - Site Closes

The (simple, hearty, and filling) feast menu looks like this:  First Course -

Secound Course - Macrows with Sauteed Mushrooms, Onions, and Garlic, Roast of
Beef with Garlic-Pepper Sauce, Asparagus with Melted Butter.  Dessert - Yogurt

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-
up one at the event.

Arts & Sciences: The A&S competition will be an open display for any item that
includes detailed, how-to instructions (diagrams are encouraged). Works will
be judged on the merit of the instructions. Best entries will be published in
the forthcoming Dun Carraig A&S newsletter (assuming permission is given, of
course!). Please direct A&S related questions to Countess Eorann O'Connor
(Nancy Cox) at (301) 855-3631 or email: nancycox@erols.com.
