From The Page (January, 2011):

The Shire of Cloondara announces a quest. The Chalice of Cloondara is to be returned. It will be gained by the most chivalrous of champions. There will be many trials along the way. There will be fights as well as subtler challenges.

We have also received word that an enemy of love will be among us and must be identified and defeated! Force of arms will NOT be enough! Hone your wits as well as your blades!

The ladies will earn recognition as well as the fighters. And a prize will be award for our champion, our most gracious lady, and the first to defeat our enemy. Gentles everywhere are invited to witness the sport and admire the gentility of the combatants and ladies.

At midday, there will be an outdoor repast complete with period food, drink, and merriment. The populace will be encouraged to relate stories of what they experienced during the day. And, perchance, some of the fine bards amongst us will honor us with music to enhance the occasion.
