Baronial Hunt V
11-13 June, AS XXXIV

 The Canton of Spiaggia Levantina cordially invites one and all to our
annual event, Baronial Hunt.

 In appreciation of our wonderful Baron and Baroness we have decided to
theme this year's event after a "traditional" Mongol Hunt!  Exactly what
do we mean by "traditional" Mongol Hunt?  You'll have to attend to find

 We have a multitude of activities planned for the weekend.  If there is
enough interest, we will hold a torch-lit tourney on Friday evening.
Everyone remember to remove their horsehair crests!

 And the fun doesn't stop with the burning of heavy fighters!  We have
plenty of tourneys planned for Saturday, including the selection of the
first Canton Rapier, Heavy, and Archery champions (Remember, you don't
need to be a member of the Canton participate!)

 For those who are not so marshally-inclined, we also have a multitude
of other activities planned.  Our original theme for the A&S competition
was creative use of Yak Legs, but seeing as how they aren't in season,
we've changed that to several other, more manageable themes.  The
first, in keeping with the theme of the event, is "East of the Oder
which is centered on the arts and sciences of Eastern Europe and Central
Asia.  If the Mongols came in contact with it on their way to Europe,
it's fair game!

The second competition is one specifically designed to showcase the
newest talents of Atlantia.  If you have a skill you've been working on
for less than a year, this is the chance to display your newfound
knowledge.  While documentation is not required for either competition,
it is strongly encouraged, and judging criteria will reflect this.

Children's activities will be organized by Katerina Volokhovna.

 The evening will conclude with a wonderful feast by the Cooks Guild of
the Barony of the Bright Hills and Dancing.  For those with dietary
concerns you can either contact Lady Maeve at besears@erols.com with
