The Twenty-sixth Year

Boffer Tourney -- Golden Rivers

November 17, 1991 (AS XXVI)

From The Page (September, 1991):

The Province of Golden Rivers announces a tournament which presents an opportunity for all gentles to introduce their younger pages and charges to the gentlemanly arts of war. You are urged to invest in weapons produced by the highly skilled craftsmen of Nerf, and bring them along with your young pupils and portable feasts to a day of battles and picnics. Swords with blades 24" or less in length (30" overall) which conform to current kingdom boffer standards are acceptable substitutes. Javelins constructed of 1/2 - 3/4" pipe insulation may also be substituted for nerfs. Shields may be no more than 1/4" plywood or a foam equivalent, we must insist on Nerf archery equipment for any would be archers. Dress armor is permitted providing it has no sharp edges or corners. Some type of head covering and eye protection is recommended. Several battles are planned pitting page against page, mentor against mentor, and a bout comprised of mixed teams. Ample time and space will be provided for movable feasts and those wishing to pursue the gentler arts. So gather your warband-in-training and pack provisions and come to Royer Park in the City of Roseville, Province of Golden Rivers at 10 a.m. on November 17th.

Autocrats: Gryphon (name/phone) or Etienne (name/phone).
