A grand DUCAL PRIZE TOURNAMENT is once again being held to benefit the Land Fund of the Kingdom! Come one and all for two days of competitions and revelry at the best event of the tourney season -- and support the Land Fund at the same time! This year, Ducal Prize is being held on the weekend of June 30 and July 1 in Southern Shores. The general schedule is as follows:

Many competitions are being sponsored in fighting and in various of the arts. In addition to those listed in the May PAGE (Accessories, Cloved Anything, Performing in Armor, Fair White Bread), there are three new competitions which entrants will need to prepare for [details of the competitions omitted]:
USE OF HORSE IN ORNAMENTATION is being sponsored by Cliveden de Cheux.
HERALDIC THEME IN DECORATION is being sponsored by Rowena d'Anjou.
A competition in WAR STORIES is being sponsored by Merewyn de Lyonesse ...

If you too wish to sponsor a competition at Ducal Prize, please let me know. To be a sponsor, you must donate a prize and run the competition at the tourney. All entry fees for the competitions are given to the Land Fund of the Kingdom. We will also be holding an auction, so please donate anything you have that would be appropriate and useful to others.

There will be many more contests besides those described here. Be sure to attend this event -- you will have a great time! And it will be in a good cause.
