From The Page (April, 2010):
We invite you to attend the annual Newcomers Tourney and Brute Squad tryouts. A King and Queen of misrule will be randomly chosen to 'reign' during the event, adding to the fun and uncertainty throughout the day. Activities for everyone are planned, such as foam weapons fighting for all, the Baroness's rapier guard will be taking on all comers on the field of honor, and many of the favorite Rivenoak games like hunkerhouser, bocce ball, croquet, and a bardic competition, with the prize going to the best filk song using the word "Rivenoak"
The Baron has determined he needs fresh meat new recruits for the Baronial Brute Squad, he will be looking to find those with characteristics worthy enough to join during a special warlord tourney with fun melees to be held, with the unbelted victor being named Captain, aka "The Big Boss" For the shopper of good bargains, the very popular white elephant silent auction returns to this event, as a fundraiser for the Barony. A good opportunity to get rid of all the stuff cluttering your SCA closet and to bring home more. And be aware, the groaning board will be open at this event, so remember to bring a dish of finger foods to share. All attendees are invited to an after event party that will be held at Seamus' Castle in Chico.
