The Twenty-ninth Year

Defender of the Shire -- Jabal al-Samira


April 1, 1995 (AS XXIX)

Mills Park,
Carson City, NV

From The Page (March, 1995):

All are invited to Jabal al-Samira's Annual Defender of the Shire Tourney.

Any fighter residing or working in Jabal al-Samira is eligible to become defender of our glorious "Shire of Dancing Women". And to show our hospitality to our friends from other areas we will be holding a prize tourney open to all fighters. Both will be double-elimination if enough fighters answer our call to arms. As if that weren't enough to give spectators a thrill, our own Romany Rye Ie Ragozany will be putting on a rapier combat demo after the tournaments. For those gentles who don't fight there will be a Bocce Ball competition (Yes, fighters can play too, but it will be going on the same time as the fighting.)

After the fighting, we will be having a potluck feast. Please bring your own main dish and a side to serve four by mundane last name: A-F Breads, G-L Fruits/Veggies, M-R Desserts, S-Z Salads. The shire will provide sodas. (Yes, the autocrat is bringing her Baklavah!) Following the feast, there will be the Bard of Samira competition and Belly Dancing by all who wish to participate.

Mills Park is in a relatively visible area, so all possible Medieval display (i.e. banners pavilions, etc.) are encouraged. This site is a 'damp' one, so keep all alcohol unobtrusive. Site fee is 4$ adults and 2$ for children under 12. The site opens at 10 a.m. (Those with pavilions to set up may set up at 9 a.m.); the lists will be open from 10 a.m. to 12 noon; armor inspection and fighting will begin immediately following. As the mundane constabulary is rather strict, all gentles will need to depart by 10 p.m. Anyone needing crash space needs to contact the autocrat by March 25th.

Autocrat: Beatrix Anastacia von Dunsel Turm (name/contact info).
