April Fool!!! -- Rivenoak

April 1, 2001 (AS XXXV)

Durham Park,
Durham, CA

From The Page (March, 2001):

Their Excellencies Bjorn and Hilary, Baron and Baroness of Rivenoak, invite you to spend a fun-filled day in Their Barony (Durham Park). You can expect to see many foolish things happening this day. The festivities will begin with a King and Queen of Misrule who will preside over the day's events.

There will be two prize toumeys; the first-back by popular demand-is the "Hopscotch Tourney," the second will be a "Bear Pit Tourney" using foolish weapons. The weapons should resemble item found in a medieval household (fire poker, haunch of mutton, pitchfork, etc.) Contact Rivenoak's Marshal (and autocrat) for details on weapon construction. After the fighting, there will be dancing and games.

Site info: Site hours are 10am to dark. There will be a side board during the day with lunch type food. Donations to the side board are very welcome.

Site donation: We recommend a site fee donation of $3.00

Autocrat: Francis Bull of Kent (contact info omitted).
