The Eleventh Year

Isles Anniversary Tourney -- Barony of the Isles
May 22, 1976

Held where? There were no entries in the cooking contests. Renfield of the Inland March (Edmund Renfield Wanderscribe) and Baron Maihe MacFergie each sponsored a darts contest. Colebear won Renfield’s standard 301 series. Robear du Bois won Maihe’s contest, which was played differently. Martin the Temperate won the Lists, and became the Champion of the Isles, receiving the Baroness Jessica’s favor and the Belt of Champions of Isles. A small revel was held at House Hellbender. Ruth Sutton received many entries for her contests: an SCA name and personal device. The winning name was Sharrana Llewellyn ap David, submitted by David the Ironlivered. A device design was not chosen. Hedwiga received an ornamental ring at closing court from Baroness Jessica in recognition of her extreme grace and dexterity during the day.

[Held where?] “Tucker's Grove (Santa Barbara)” – Martin the Temperate
