The Barony of Ramshaven invites one and all to come witness the Line of North be secured at Ealdormere’s 21st Crown Tournament, May 23-25, 2008 at the Blue Springs Scout Reserve.
The tournament itself will be held on Saturday, May 24th (exact time to be determined by Their Majesties).
Following the Tournament, there will be a plated dinner prepared by Baron Davin de La Baliene and THL Vladislav cel Inalt. Seating is STRICTLY limited to 40! Reservations (including choice of entree) are required. The menu has been posted to the E-list earlier today by Baron Kolbjorn.
Note: A Below-the-Salt supper will be offered by the Raven Tavern coincide with this exquisite repast.
There will be archery and rapier contests over the course of the weekend, and the Barony will be sponsoring a Frugal Garb competition, organized by THL Odette du St-Remy. Details will be posted to the website as they become available.
Sunday will feature a Chivalry Gauntlet with the Chivalry of Ealdormere holding the field against all who would try their swords against them.
In addition, the Raven Tavern will return for the weekend, hosted by Master Garread Galbraith and Mistress Eleanor Fairchild, serving a full lunch and dinner menu each day and featuring a number of musical guests. Breakfast will also be available Saturday and Sunday, prepared by other members of the Barony.
The site features plenty of flat, campable land and fire pits for campfires or outdoor cooking.
For those who prefer to "camp" indoors, bunks are available by reservation at no additional cost. The number is limited, but if we receive enough reservations early enough, we may be able to secure an additional building.
Finally (and this important!), the site is very, very discretely damp – no visible alcohol containers at all (not even the trash). Those breaking this rule or displaying public drunkenness will be asked to leave.
Sorry, but no pets allowed on site.
