From The Page (February, 2008):

Cast off the shackles of propriety and answer the call of mischief, mayhem, and madcap frivolity. Join in the silliness and fun that is March Madness. There will be a Fool's Tourney for both heavy and rapier. Heavy Tourney first will be a Fool's crested joust (on stick horses of course), second will be the crested tourney (without the horses). There will be a competition for the Best War Horse and one for the Best Fool's Crest; also Most Outrageous Death. Rapier will include a Fool's Crest Tourney also with competitions for Best Fool's crest/hat and Most Outrageous death and fanciest kill. A 3rd competition will be held to determine the champion of the day - a Japanese tourney of Ro-Sham-Bo. Other amusements include: Bardic - the Court Jester - performance of the famous Chalice from the Palace scene from the movie Court Jester. Cooking- the Seven Deadly Sins - dishes to portray the sins (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride) Example - for sloth something that can be eaten with minimal effort or wrath something very spicy, other activities - circlet finials even if you don't wear a circlet make one with finials; Quick the Bard (combat musical chairs)/ Quick the Bard - Scavenger Hunt/ Stomp the Duck. There will also be a Riddle quest to challenge those whose wits are at their best. The feast is potluck with meat dish being furnished.
