From The Page (April, 1980):

The House Briarwood Founding Fair is a village fair to celebrate the founding of the new household in Seagirt. It will be held on Saturday, 5 April, from noon until dark at House Briarwood, (address omitted). Peasant costume (i.e., grubbies) is requested. Bring picnic food, board games, and boffers, if possible.

There will be several contests: poetry -- on the new household (extravagant flattery is encouraged); on village fairs. An arts competition is being held for the best design for the household badge/arms, in any medium, must include an ourobouros and a briar, and a nine men's morris tournament is being staged. If possible, there will be some crafts stalls as well as food and beverages for sale.

Games planned are hoodman blind, pillow fight, jingling match, grinning through the horsecollar, leaping in sacks, tug-of-war, and a blindfolded boffer tournament.

Call House Briarwood for further details; (phone). Members of the household are Marc le Goliard, Linnet Kestrel, Edmund Adamant, Helena of Terra, Stephan the Pilgrim and Mikhaila of Sevenoaks.
