Good ol' Pinnacle Peak.  I remember that from the ancient days starting 
in Phoenix, Arizona.  Yes, SCA people tried to go in there with 
chainmail ties.  They got wise to that pretty quickly and now stock wire 
snips for smartasses like us.  Their response to an order of Well-Done 
steak is to bring you an old shoe on a plate.  No joke.
