From The Page (September, 2004):

In the far north, the sun is setting once again and there is a chill to the evening air. Who shall lead the defense of the gates of winter? Who has the stout heart and strong arm to lead our mighty warriors and defend the gates of winter against all comers? Who shall inspire that mighty warrior to deeds of renown? Come celebrate the bounty of the northern fields with the Barony of Winter's Gate as we select the Captain and Heart who will see us through our long winter nights. The Captain's tournament will be on Saturday. There will be a potluck feast Saturday evening, the theme is the Bounty of the North. There will be an open cooking competition, using Northern recipes.
