The Thirty-fifth Year

Cloondara/Kates War -- St. Katherine

September 17, 2000 (AS XXXV)

Cragmont Park,
Berkeley, CA

From The Page (September, 2000):

Once again the tensions between the Shire of Cloondara and the College of Sainte Katherine of Alexandria become unbearable. The Cloondarans take much offence at being put on torture wheels. The Kates are tired of having their sheep and occasional ponies defiled by Cloondarans. War must commence!!!

Come fighters and fencers to aid the Mighty Lemming Horde or the Valiant Defenders of Cloondara. Come artisarns and performers to awe the populace with your creations. War scenarios include open Field Battles, Hill battles, Bridge Battles, Reliquary Battles, and the Lemming favorite, Cliff Battles! There WILL be rapier combat!

Many peaceful activities are also planned, such as the Brawl of War, an open bardic, and the disturbingly popular insults competition (you can insult us even if you are not one of the warring sides!). There will also be two exercises of pure silliness — the best edible catapult ammo and the best WAR-related use of the Kates' THING. Come and look at the Kates THING at the Kates pavilion at any major event prior to the war.

Site info: Site open at 10am. Armor inspection will begin at 10:30 (really!). Combat begins at 10:37am. War scenarios start at 11:30. Site will close at 5:30. Site donation will be $3.

Autocrat: Aodh Deoradhan (contact info omitted)

Scenarios Coordinator: Dmitriy Shelomianin (contact info omitted)
