[OUT] Caer Galen Toys for Tots

description:
The time draws nigh for people of the Outlands to once again come forward and show the world how things should be. How the concepts of Chivalry, Courtesy, and Honor didn't die in the Middle Ages, but live on today in those of us who think those things still matter. Time once again for us to help those less fortunate find hope in these troubling times.

I ask you to join me in Caer Galen on November 15, in a celebration of all that is best in the SCA: The Caer Galen Toys for Tots Championships! All year we've been raising toys in monthly tournaments. We've seen Don Max win his first tournament in the Outlands (ever!), and we've seen Baron Bjarki run face first onto the end of a glaive. Just imagine the sites you'll see at the main event! For example, we'll have:

Armored Combat (Run by HE Bjarki) - starting around 11:00
Rapier Combat (Run by HE Signy) - starting around 1:30
Archery Shoots (Run by Lady Cera) - Starting around 9:30
Equestrian (Where else but Caer Galen!) - Starting around Noon
Foam Weapons (Kids vs. Adults melee, anyone?) - TBD

Please note that horses will not be allowed on-site before 11:30

A donation lunch will be provided (with the proceeds going to purchase more toys), and the attendee bringing in the most toys will get a special prize.

Posters and invitations for corporate participation are available from the autocrat for anyone willing to put a box out at their office or favorite shops!
