              The Shire of the Shadowlands presents the twelfth

	                TOURNAMENT of the ROUND TABLE

My Lords and Ladies, you are cordially invited to attend the first event
of Spring as the Shadowlands searches for the twelfth gentle to join
membership of its round table. As in the past, the one to be chosen must
endeavor in many fields. This year the level of diversity has increased
as the number of fields a contender may enter has grown to eight. It is
asked that those who would take up the challenge compete in as many
areas as possible, for the next champion must be well rounded. To aid
you in this task, the schedule of events will be arranged so each
category of competition will end before the next begins. For spectators
this will remove the difficulty of having to choose which part of the
event to watch, as you can see it all, including:

        Arts & Sciences            Games              Dance
        Heraldry                   Archery
        Bardic                     Combat, Armored & Rapier

After the day's activities, Lady Crystal will serve a hot feast of
roasted meats, backed fruit cobblers, breads and cheeses, and other
delicious side dishes, all to be served under the pavilion near sunset.
Announcements and awards will be made in court following dinner. There
will be a raffle of donated goods to benefit the Kingdom Office of the
