The Fourteenth Year

Captaincy Tourney -- Winter's Gate
January 26, AS XIV (1980)

From The Page (January, 1980):

The Shire of Winter's Gate will hold its winter Captaincy Tourney on Saturday, 26 January, at the new Married Students Housing Center on the University of Alaska Campus in Fairbanks, Alaska. Besides the tourney there will be games, contests with prozes (including a crafts competition and a cooking competition (desserts)), a potluck dinner, and a bardic circle, among other things. Set up and games will begin about 10 am and the fighting about noon. The populace will be able to view the combat from inside the building, and the fighters will be able to armour up and await their combat inside as well. Everyone is invited, but anyone interested in coming should contact either the Seneschale, Lady Morgana n'ha Keridwen (contact info omitted), or the current Captain, Micheil, Younger of An Alltan (contact info omitted). In the event the weather is really bad -30 or more, for example, please contact one of the above to see if the tourney has been cancelled or changed.

Description of this event (if any), taken from The Page, or from memory of at least one person who attended the event.
