The Nineteenth Year

Vakkerfjell vs. Rot Mahne
October 20-21, 1984 (AS XIX)

From The Page (October, 1984):

For those old-time SCA types who are interested in going to a tourney and simply having a good time, Francois of the Three Hills and the Shire of Elan are hosting the conflict between Vakkerfjell and Rot Mahne at Frenchie's Castle. This site is on 2 1/2 acres of land with a castle sitting in the middle of the lot. Fighting events will take place in a large open field on the left side of the castle. At each end o fht efield there is a large oak tree which is the only shade, so please bring some sort of sunshades. Water for drinking, cooking, and some washing is provided as well as privies. A small store for supplies is located within 1/2 mile of the site. Mundane forms of entertainment are also provided. There will be a large open-pit fire in the castle courtyard for a bardic circle. The weather at the time the event is planned is usually very mild. In case of inclement weather, indoor space will be provided. Roads leading to the site are mostly two-lane highways and are in very good shape, except for the last 1/4 mile or so at the site, which is a very rough road.

This promises to be a very fun event with lots of fighting and entertainment with a large castle providing a realistic atmosphere and good photographic background. Merchant space is available at no cost. Site is open for setup on Friday night.

For more informaation, please contact Caristiona Bhan (AUTOCRAT), (phone); Francois of the Three Hills, (phone); or Aaron of Wolfskrag, (phone).

DATE: October 20 and 21.

Site rules: 1) No open-pit fires allowed (too much fire hazard); however, a huge fire will be available for a bardic circle within the castle courtyard. 2) Please, no young children below teenage level, due to loose livestock and building architecture not designed with children in mind. Pets are OK only on leash. 3) This site is on private property and could turn out to be a good site for future events; please remove all of your own trash when you leave, and make sure site is left clean.
