The Forty-Sixth Year

Fool's Tourney -- Tarnmist

April 21, 2012 (AS XLVI)

Nipomo Regional Park,
Nipomo, CA

From The Page (April, 2012):

Please join the Barony for Fool's Tourney, a day of frivolity and complete silliness. Let your inner Jester come out and play. We’ll be sharing a potluck dinner. Park has very large BBQ and we provide charcoal. Bring meat/protein for yourselves and side dish to share (please, no coconut due to severe allergies). The fi ghting scenarios will be *unique* and challenging. Competitions: “Bardic Competition”-Jesters should come ready to make us laugh with their best limericks. Extra credit for haiku limericks. "Best Subtlety or Illusion Food"-Fantastical and deceptive edible creations to be presented. "Men in Tights"- Men! Do you have legs? Do you know how to use them? Ladies! Is there anything more fun than watching a man strut his stuff? We will be selling beads throughout the day. During the potluck, the brave, tights-clad men will be strolling through the park, stopping at your table to solicit your vote. "Come As You Aren't"-Do you have a costume, time period or persona that you'd like to try? Do you have a pun costume and no place to wear it? This is the opportunity you have been waiting for! There will be an all day costume contest judged by the populace. The winners will become the lord and lady of misrule.
