LORD DEFENDER MID-WINTER TOURNAMENT & FEAST
The third annual Lord Defender's Mid-Winter Tournament & Feast of the North will be held on January 19, at Returnagain Lodge on Elmendorf Air Base, in Anchorage Alaska.
A tournament to determine the successor to the Lord Defender will be held. This meeting of arms will occur on Saturday during the daylight; be prepared to fight at 12:00 noon. To be eligible for the title, you must reside north of the 55th parallel. After the tournament, melees will be fought. The winner of the tournament will be proclaimed the Holder of the Key, and later succeed to the Lord Defender's position.
After nightfall, preparations for the Feast will begin. The fare will be Pot-Luck, and each is asked to bring a dish. One dollar will be collected to help defray the cost of the hall rental. Afterwards, a revel will begin. Sleeping space will be available for those not wishing to travel.
