[ATE] Pillage, Plunder, Pluck and Poke

It is time again for the Shire of Granholme's annual Pillage, Plunder, Pluck and Poke. We invite you to join us for a day of tournaments, camaraderie and feasting. This year's event will be held at the Villago Park in Casa Grande, Arizona in Ramada D at the back of the park.

The Shire of Granholme will be hosting a hard suit and rapier tournament. There will also be a Youth Combat tournament and bardic competition. Entry into the tournaments will require a donation to the plunder table. This year there will be a Shire donation of  $100 gift certificates to Windrose Armoury and Zen Warrior Armory,  along with bottles to be filled by Clariandra of Atenvledt's Brewers Guild. Contestants will choose a prize in order of final ranking, ensuring that every participant will walk away with a prize.

An A&S pavilion will be set up for all to display  arts and sciences projects.

There will be a heraldry consultation table set up by the Parhelium Herald Mistress Marta as-tu Mika-Mysliwy.
