The Fiftieth Year

Cherry Blossom Festival -- Eskalya

May 9, 2015 (AS L)

Jewel Lake Parish,
Anchorage, AK

From The Page (May, 2015):

Spring has reached us once more, and it’s time to gather to celebrate it! We invite you to join us once again May 9, 2015, at the Jewel Lake Parish ((address omitted), Anchorage, AK 99502),

It wasn’t uncommon for idle samurai to duel each other to settle issues of honor or prestige. We offer a prize for the best duel challenge issued by a fighter (heavy and rapier, both). You need not win the duel, merely deliver the challenge in the most dramatic/amazing/hilarious way. Contest begins when the site opens, but sign-up is encouraged to be certain that no entries get missed.

We will have a Go tournament, with a prize for the champion. Sign-up will be available any time from site opening until the beginning of the tournament.

For the children there will be paper bead folding for necklace creation.

Finally, on the tables there will be provided both flowers and zen gardens. There will be a prize for the best decorated table. Feel free to bring your own supplies, as always, but the provided decorations should be incorporated in some way.

Dinner will be served around five in the afternoon. White rice, miso soup and matcha tea will be provided by the hall. The rest of the meal is potluck style. Bring what you feel like; it was yummy last year. Dessert of daifuku (red bean stuffed mochi cakes) will be provided.

Site information: Jewel Lake Parish, (address omitted), Anchorage, AK 99502.

Site opens at 12pm (noon) and closes at 8pm.

Site Fee: Adults: $10 Children: (ages 6-18) $5 Under 5: Free Family Cap: $40, $5 non-member surcharge applies
