The Twenty-seventh Year

Dance Revel / Warlord Tourney -- Cloondara / St. Katherine

November 21, 1992

Site: Moscone Field House, San Francisco, CA

From The Page (October, 1992):

Put on your dancing shoes and try to best your opponents in combat to become the next Warlord of the College of St. Katherine's. Yes, don your armor and ready your weapons and learn new dances of grace and fun. The Shire of Cloondara is holding its annual dance seminar and revel. Classes start at 11 A.M. and run through the day (with breaks for lunch and dinner). Meanwhile, just outside the College of St. Katherine's will be hosting a tourney to choose its new warlord. List sign-up opens at 10 A.M., armor inspection at 11, and the tourney begins at noon. A revel of dancing and toasting will begin at 6 P.M.

To be eligible to fight in the tourney you must be: 1) Breathing, 2) an authorized fighter in the SCA, and 3) able to put up with the members of the College. The Warlord will be expected to lead the massive forces of the College of st. Katherine into any war with the forces of the West and any war between the College and her adversaries.

To be eligible to attend the dance classes and revel you must be: 1) Willing to have fun. Dancers will be expected to dance and have fun.

No feast is planned because there's no kitchen, but there is a wide variety of restaurants in the area. Everyone is encouraged to bring finger food to eat during the ball.

The site fee is $5.

Autocrat: Gwenyth of Whalsay (name/contact info).
