From The Page (March, 2006):

Join us for the last Saint Torvaldr's Day Celebration. At the end of June, Torvaldr Torgarson will be leaving us for the Midrealm. Come celebrate with him, and allow him the opportunity to say good-bye. This will be a Norse prize tournament. Cost is $2 per event to enter, all proceeds donated to the Arthritis Foundation. Other contributions will be gratefully accepted. The events scheduled are: Holmgang - Heavy fighting with matched weapons, first prize is a Norse Battle Ax; Oar Dancing, first prize is a Thor's Hammer; Spear Throwing for distance and accuracy, first prize is a Norse Spear; Kings Table, first prize is a hand made hardened leather Kings Table set; Best Broken Fighter Story, first prize is a set of Viking Home Companion CDs. We will also be holding the Championship Tourney to choose Torvaldr's successor as Champion and Commander of the Vinhold Army. But what day would be complete in Vinhold without good food and drink? We'll have Siege Cooking and a Cordial competition.
