Please don't assume that!  The hand-and-a-half sword previously mentioned
is the prize for a competition called the "Gauntlet", to be held on 
morning, independent of the actual Elfsea Defender competition.  The 
Gauntlet is a fighting activity that has been postponed from Gothic War
to Elfsea Defender, and the organizer and the prize are coming from 
Bonwicke.  I believe they're still looking for a prize for the Defender
of Elfsea.

I wish I had the means to offer you a lift.  Have you inquired on the
Central Region or Ansteorra lists?  Perhaps someone coming down from
the North might be able to give you a ride.
