[WES] Newcomer's & Warlord's Tourney Day

Greetings to the Populace of the West from the Misty Lands of its Southern Shores! We would like to invite all gentle folk to come share our company and/or demonstrate their fighting prowess at this year's Newcomer's and Warlord's Prize Tourney!!

We will be running our Warlord's Tourney after the traditional Newcomer's 1st year and 2nd year Tourneys. [Prizes to be announced closer to the event.] This year's Warlord's Tourney will be a snowball style and we'll be using it to choose the new Southern Shores Warlord, as well -- all are welcome to enter the Warlord's lists and vie for the prize and/or the honor of being Warlord!

For the non-fighters, we have several classes that will be of interest to both Newcomers and Seasoned Scadians as well. Potential subjects are: SCA 101, Illumination Basics, "Period" Camping on a Budget, Costuming/Period Patterns, Embroidery Embellishments, two cooking related lectures, and maybe even a labyrinth demo!

We are also offering TWO Rapier Tourneys to enrich the day: One for Newcomers and one that the White Scarf folks can get in on too...Prizes for each.

We of the Province of Southern Shores are VERY happy to announce that we have CHANGED THE SITE for our Newcomer's/Warlord's Tourney on April 14th!!

This year, the Tourney will be held at CUPERTINO MEMORIAL PARK!! Around the corner of Stevens Creek Blvd and Stelling Rd (near 280/85's intersection)

It doesn't have a specific address, but it's a sideways L-shaped park with one end on Stevens Creek Blvd and the other on Stelling Rd. DeAnza College is right across the street and the grassy part we'll be at is immediately west of the Quinlan Community Ctr at 10185 N. Stelling Rd. Cupertino, CA 95014.

There is parking at the Community Center and along the street that lines the park on Alves Dr. and Anton Way.
