NEW DIRECTIONS TO SITE




Poster: Marybeth Lavrakas <lavraka@ibm.net>

****NEW DIRECTIONS TO THE FEAST OF ST GEORGE****
The Park system double booked our site!  The event will now be held at
Camp Whispering Pines in Umstead State Park in Raleigh NC.  This
campsite cannot be accessed via Hwy 70!!  Instead, from North or South,
take I-95 to I-40 outside of Raleigh.  Follow 40 west until you reach
the Harrleson Road exit (if you come to RDU airport, you've gone too
far).  Turn right;  the road dead quickly dead ends into the park.  If
you're traveling from the west, simply turn left at the end of the exit
ramp.  Follow the internal camp signs to Whispering Pines, and drive
straight back until the road ends, right in front of the "troll" cabin.
This is a smaller site than we reserved, FEAST SPACE IS VERY LIMITED.
We now only have cabin space for 64 people, but tenting space is now
available as well.  Please let the reservationist know which you prefer.

April 9-11-The Feast of St. George
Canton of Kappellenberg, Raleigh, NC

 Join us in celebrating the return of spring!  Chivalry and mayhem will
reign side-by-side as our heavy armored combatants participate in period
style tournament fighting, while all will be dazzled by the wit and
skill of the rapier fighters.  Music, dancing (a Carouso ball in the
afternoon and masked ball following feast), period games, classes,
CAMBOK, and children’s activities will all run during the day on
Saturday...and make sure not to miss the Dragon Parade!
 Rapier authorizations will begin by 10 am, with a tourney to follow.
Heavy authorizations will begin around noon, and a 14th C style 'shield
tree' tourney will last the afternoon.
 Lady Sveva la Lucciola will be coordinating the A&S competitions. As
spring will be upon us and flowers bursting out all over, a static A&S
contest will be based on this theme. Entries must either depict flower
motifs (such as an embroidered flower, painted heraldic flower) or
utilize flowers as a construction element (dyes from flowers, or cooking
with flowers).  Let your imagination bloom!  The second main A&S
competition focuses on representations of dragons (not surprisingly!),
any medium, and might include banners, masks, 3-D dragons, dragons on
scrolls, dragon shaped food, etc.  Portable entries will become part of
the Parade, of course.  Lastly, as this is a 16th C themed event, we
will have a late period garb expo (verbal documentation only) late in
the afternoon.  Lady Sveva’s contact info is
mohaj001@onyx.dcri.duke.edu, or Leila Mohajerin (919-309-0236).
 Windmasters' own Baroness Aileen and Mistress Ceridwen are sponsoring a
SONNET COMPETITION.  Entries may be prepared ahead of time or composed
on-site.  They warn that judging will be highly subjective, and they
might look favorably on such things as beautifully calligraphed sonnets,
or sonnets related to the theme of the event, or ones composed on site.
 Cost are $6 site fee, $6 for feast; children age 6-12, ˝ price.  There
is cabin space for 64, and tenting space is now available.  Please note
on your reservation the number of spaces required, and the names of
those joining you.  Most cabins have 4 beds each.  Send reservations to
Lord Nikulai Ivanovitch (Neal Atlow) 1720 Euclid Rd. Durham, NC  27713
(919-572-1730)
 The autocrat is Lady Kathryn Rous, who may be reached at 919-408-3008
