You know, I've heard nothing but good things about the Laurel Prize 
Tourney, and I remember the first one being a great deal of fun even 
though I didn't participate in the displays or the fighting.  There's a 
need for it, and it _is_ different from the A&S competition routine 
which so many people dislike.  I wish they would have more like it.

Not entirely true.  I remember.  Interkingdom, wasn't it?  And you 
won your own prize, those marvelous embroidered circles.  
I was thrilled. :-)
