From The Page (April, 1980):
Lords and Ladies,
The Shire of Windy Meads would like to request your presence at our Championship Tourney and Revel on the twelfth day of April A.S. XIV. The champion will be the high scorer of the activities held at the tourney and revel. Our chosen champion must be strong (to defend our small shire), intelligent (to converse with the learned populace), and skilled in the arts (to entertain and feed final weary students). In order to test these qualities we have devised these competitions.
Archery (Royal Round)
Contest of Arms (Single Elimination)
Cooking (Handheld Sweetmeats)
Team Melee-Body Looting
(Lists open at 10:30, archery at 11, and fighting starts at noon)
Pun-talk (3 min. speech judged on quality and quantity)
Entertainment (5 min., open)
Please bring a picnic lunch to the tourney and the dinner at the revel will be potluck (Shire members will be bringing main dishes).
WARNING - Our Shire has a five cent pun tax which WILL be enforced, except for the performers in the pun-talk.
Description of this event (if any), taken from The Page, or from memory of at least one person who attended the event.
