From The Page (June, 1995):

Greetings, Gentles of the West Kingdom!

Caer Darth in conjunction with Clan MacKensie cordially invite you to join us in the Celtic celebration of Lughnasa: The harvest festival. In honor of this bountiful time of year we shall be holding what we hope will be a yearly feast and tourney. The tourney will be a Mad Dog / Bean / Prize Tourney. Lists begin at 9 AM with armour inspection at 10 AM. Fighting will commence at 11 AM with the closing of the Lists. There will be a $2.00 list fee.

Our Celtic feast will follow the tourney with the hall doors opening at 5 PM and the feast beginning at 6 PM. This will be a three remove feast with traditional Celtic fare - but before you turn away at the thought of bland food, remember that the Celts covered the world before Rome was even a town. So be prepared for some really wonderful food.

We shall also be holding a Raffel with 'Darkwood'ian Famous prizes. Raffel Tickets are only $1.00 each.

And much, much more! So come and join the fun .
