Festival.  This is actually the April Event Announcement...much more

Come One, Come All to the
Southern Regional Festival!
March 31 - April 2, 2000

A Grand Time will be had by all as we gather at The Stones of Ravensfort
to host a weekend of pageantry, fun, feasting and competition.

Celebrate our joyous return from war by lifting once more your weapons
in our Armored, Rapier and Archery competitions! A new Southern Regional
Warlord, and Rapier Champion who will fulfill a similar role, will be
selected from amongst the Southern Regional residents in these lists.
All may enter, however, and prove themselves victorious upon the field.
There will be several archery competitions, one of which will be an
archer's duel between Southern Regional residents, to select our new
Regional Archery Champion.

Arts and Sciences will feature a Laurel's Prize tourney, in which
Southern Regional residents are requested to display with their local
group, a single piece, with at least minimal documentation, created
within the last year.  Those from outside the region may display as
individuals or groups.  A firelight Bardic competition will conclude
with the choice of our final champion, the Southern Regional Bard.

Many other activities, including excellent arrow-funding breakfasts,
youth rapier and boffer, charter painting, a voice heraldry triathelon,
an Armored torchlight tourney, and a variety of classes, will take place
throughout the weekend!

Mistresses Clarissa and Meadbhb are once more teaming up, to prepare a
cool-weather medieval European feast.  It will feature herb cheese and
bread, chicken in bruet (chicken stew), roast beef with sauce, mushroom
tarts, carrots glazed with honey, pears in plum sauce and excellent
