The Thirty-fourth Year

Prize Tourney -- Montaigne du Roi

February 26-27, 2000 (AS XXXIV)

Ford Ord,
Monterey, CA

From The Page (January, 2000):

Hear ye! Hear ye! The canton of Montaigne du Roi invites all good gentles to participate in and witness the great deeds done on the tourney field as we hold our annual Prize Tourney.

Saturday will be filled with contests of skill, strength, and daring for combatants and noncombatants alike. Activities will include the tourney and assorted melees. For those unsatisfied with rattan carnage, a life-size dummy with SCA legal armor will be on hand to withstand the blows of your live steel or the provided flange mace. There will be a basket lunch auction (the silent kind) for both Lords and Ladies; all are encouraged to participate. An open display of Arts and Sciences will be set up to encourage the showing of winter projects.

Archery will be held on Sunday, including target and a light's trail upon which combat skills may be honed, and the sad remains of Saturday's dummy will be set up for bodkin points. The potential site is the former Fort Ord (see the February Page for confirmation) and camping will be available from noon on Friday through the end of Sunday's events. The site will open for the day Saturday at 9:00 a.m., with fighting to begin at 10:30 a.m. Sunday's activities will begin at 11:00 a.m. Site fee is $5, good for either or both days.

Autocrat: Garrett Todhunter (contact info omitted)

The Autocrat would appreciate forewarning by those able to bring pavilions and / or sunshades- the more the merrier.
