From The Page (May, 1999):

The noble Company of Saint George invites all who love honour to join us on the fifth day of June at mid-day for a friendly passage of armes, to be followed by feasting, revelry, and discussion of the glorious feats of the day. Let all who come forth to offer challenge upon the field do so for no other prize but the greatest of all, that of honour and of the joy of fellowship.

Site open at 11 AM and closes at 8 PM. Requested donation for the feast is $10. Since we have an imposed limit on the number of people at this site, tickets MUST be obtained in advance from the Autocrat (or any other member of the Company). Make checks payable to "SCA, Inc. - Southern Shores".

Autocrat: Constance of Lincolnshire (contact info omitted).

From The Page (June, 1999):

The Ancient, Honorable, and Frolicsome Province of Southern Shores invites fighters of every rank and station to join them for a day of good-natured competition. This year we are combining our annual Newcomers tourney with our Warlord tourney to ensure an event that has something for everyone!

Three lists are planned for the day: First-Year Newcomers: open to all fighters authorized for one year or less; Second-Year Newcomers: open to all fighters authorized for two years or less (including those who entered the first list); and the Warlord Tourney: open to ALL fighters. Prizes will be awarded in all the Lists, and the winner of the Warlord tourney earns the honor of wearing the gull and leading our troops to victory this season.

Other activities include the Hunt for the One True Brick, a Raffle, Hunkerhauser, games, dancing, and a coloring contest for kids of all ages.

Competitions: Arts - Art for The Gull; bring or draw on site some artwork for The Gull (pen & ink drawings preferred). Sciences - Ironmongering (the "Geoffrey Scott memorial competition ..." ).

Site Info: The site will open at 8:00 a.m. List sign-ups start at 9:00 a.m., and fighting starts at 10:00 a.m. The site fee is $2.
