Feast of the Dragon

Poster: EmberNAsh@aol.com

Goode gentles,
It has come to my attention that evil gnomes have started a rumor that this
event is full...not true! There is plenty of feast and cabin space left! I
have spoken with the site owner and have had feast deadline extended -
please see below. Come and help celebrate the formation of a new Canton!

Pax Vobiscum,
AEthelwulf of Malmesbury, autocrat

Feast of the Dragon, April 23rd-25th, 1999
Mountain Rest,SC

Unto all of the Populace of the Known World, the Incipient Canton of St.
Georges poses invitation to come and
celebrate the spirit of St.George, with a weekend of fighting, feasting,
and revelry in the beautiful springtime foothills
of  South Carolina.
	Of course any celebration for St. George must include fighting! All
fighting events will be based on three man
teams.  Included in this tourney will be a DRAGON BATTLE, in which a three
man team will challenge “St. Georges’
Dragon”(a five man team tied together to form the body of a dragon). All
phases of the tourney will be worth points,
and the winners of this combat will be dubbed “St. Georges Dragonslayers”
and will be presented the beast’s heart at
feast. The captain of the winning team will also be awarded a lance in
honor of St. George.
	There will be a hound coursing.   Please contact the Huntsmistress if 
wish to bring your Greyhound for
this event.
	The A&S competition will cover dragons: illuminated, on garb or just 
any other form you can think of.
Since St. George is also the Patron Saint of England, Moscow, and Ethiopia,
the next category will be for tassels based
on designs from any of these lands. Of course there will be an open
category, so come and show off your latest project!
Also, simply because it is far too rare, we will be holding a competition
for practical period footwear; the judging for
this will be discretionary and all items must be worn.
	The feast will contain three removes and promises to be most sumptuous
(and filling!).Due to site restraints,
reservations for feast must be received by April 14th.  Please address any
dietary concerns to the Autocrat.
	Lady Glee of Falcon Cree (Deb Mullins) has graciously volunteered to
kidcrat for the day, and plans to teach
the children a “Dragon Dance” and let them perform this at feast.
	The site of the event is Camp Chatuga a beautiful private camp 
located in
the northwestern corner of  S.C.
Cabins are bunkhouse style and each has its own facilities, and are heated.
If you prefer, there is adequate camping
available as well. The site has a clear stream-fed lake which will be
available for swimming, weather permitting (please
bring proper attire). The site is discreetly wet, with no original
containers allowed. NO PETS (except for coursing
animals) - contact the Huntsmistress Lady Caitriona inghean Ghiolla
