 Sacred Stone's Baronial Investiture and Novice Tourney

 The date is Apr 17 and the site is West Mecklenburg High School in
NC.  It is BONE DRY!

Please come join us to say thank you to Baroness Rachel de Johnstone and
welcome our new Baron and Baroness.

TO ENTER the HEAVY WEAPONS Novice Tourney you must have been authorized for
two years or less in weapon and shield, or, one year or less in any other
weapons form. There will also be a variety of other fighting scenarios
immediately following the novice list.  Those scenarios will be determined
the fighters wishing to participate so be sure to bring your armor (no
how long you've been fighting!).
TO ENTER the RAPIER Novice Tourney you must be authorized for 2 years or

A&S is a general competition with a Novice Category (any area where you have
only 1 year of experience) however we prefer to emphasize these specific
Calligraphy, Illumination,  Leatherwork, Needle Lace, Bobbin Lace and
There will also be an open display as well as a few classes throughout the
day. Check at troll for specifics.

There will also be a "poison contest" to extend throughout the day.  At
you will be assigned a colored ribbon to wear on your arm.  Green means
playing.  Gold means you're playing with an alternate to almonds.  No ribbon
means you're not playing. The idea is to "poison" your intended by placing
their almond somewhere in their food or drink.  If their lips touch what
contains the almond, they are poisoned.  They do not have to eat the almond
be poisoned.  The dead person must surrender their ribbon to you.  The
that collects the most ribbons by the end of the day is the winner.
in this poison game is a Best Death competition. Those who die the most
entertainingly for the populace will also win a prize.

Matsudaira Toshiyori (John Sellers) will provide an incredible feast. A
simple lunch will also be provided.  Please contact him for any dietary
