Ed Levin Park,
From The Page (February, 1998):
Are you becoming too complacent, sitting in your home, with no fear of attacking armies? Do you strain your ears for the sweet cries of battle? Do you wish to demonstrate your prowess to all and sundry? Come then to the Wargy, which is indeed being held this year, Sunday February 8 at Ed Levin Park in Milpitas. The site will open at 10:00 A.M. and close at 5:00 P.M.
Wargy is traditionally a time for fighters and artisans both to display great feats, whether on the field or not, and this aspect of the day is emphasized by the challenge issued Twelfth Night by our own Princess. Tliere will be 10 categories of arts and sciences open for contribution from the populace to be donated as treasure for the Wargy. All contributions need to be finished works, although thay can have been previously created, and reflect the great talents of the populace. Princess Lydia herself backs up her challenge by entering an item made by her own hand in each of the ten categories. She will be awarding prizes to other members of the populace and groups who donate interesting, unusual, or otherwise "cooler than frog snot" things to the treasure. She is coiifident that the populace will rise to her challenge, and that the treasure this year at Wargy will far surpass the donations of recent years.
Land will be available to pillars of the West, geographic groups, households, and war units if they meet the necessary requirements. The usual restrictions regarding marshals, constables, and water bearers will again be in place. Also, the number of arts and science catergories your group presents entries in will determine the amount of land assigned to your group.
The categories are: 1. Metalwork, jewelry, or coinage, 2. Woodwork: i.e. wooden medieval games, toys, and containers, 3. Ceramic or clay work, containers, or drinking vessels, 4. Leather work, 5. Needlework, weaving, or beadwork, 6. Brewing, 7. Cartography, calligraphy, or drawing, 8. Cooking, preferably a meal for a fighter, 9. Costuming: a historically accurate and attractive article of clothing, 10. Cheese making: open. With the brewing, cooking, and cheese making categories, please provide enough for the competition and to be given to a fighter as treasuer.
What can be better than a great war? Come to the Wargy and make this a truly great war.
