ST. DAVID'S CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNEY
UCSC, Porter College Field
Sunday, April 10, 2005
11am to 9pm
Come heavy fighters! Come fencers! Come boffer warriors! ...Heck
*everybody* who's not going to La Prova Dura should come on up to Porter
College's Field at UCSC this Sunday. Bring your weapons, food, feast &
picnic gear, and even your dancing shoes to help us choose and celebrate
St. David's new Champion.
*Championship Tourney:* The College of St. David needs a new champion -
an avatar to exemplify St. David'sness in both the SCA and mundane
worlds; someone to issue colorful challenges of war on behalf of the
college, lead us into battle, and escort the Seneschal during delivery
of St. David's tax payments to the appropriate pointy hat(s).
The new champion will be chosen by rite of combat (heavy fighting,
fencing, or even boffers - depending upon who shows up). Lists open at
11am. Armor Inspection begins at noon. Lists close 12:30pm. Tourney
will commence at 1pm.
Should it come to pass that insufficient numbers of compatible warrior
types are in attendance, physical combat will be foregone in favor of
competitions allowing candidates ample opportunity to demonstrate their
possession of other talents likely to be needed by the Champion of St.
*Competitions:* Either a "Shakespearean Insult" or "Silver-Tongued
Devil" contest, then a "No Shite, There I was..." competition wherein
the participants shall strive to produce the best tall tale detailing
the "Martyred Slug incident". There may also be a dancing contest
and/or a "Pun 'Til You Die" competition.
*Auction:* Please bring items to be included in a not-so-silent
auction, the proceeds of which shall go towards funding future St.
Potluck Picnic on the Green:* Begins either shortly after conclusion of
combat, or 5pm - whichever comes first. Please bring (by SCA first
name): A-H, Dessert; I-M, Salad; N-Z, Side Dish. Roasted chicken will
be provided as a main dish, and water will be available to all, both
during the competitions and the meal.
*Dancing:* Dance Master Needed!!! We have musicians, but no one to
lead the dancing. Please contact the autocrats if you can help.
*Other Entertainment:* Aside from one or two musicians, we are woefully
short of entertainers. Therefore we ask of you musicians, vocalists,
poets, storytellers, dancers, gosling jugglers, and anyone else who
feels like pitching in to entertain the populace: PLEASE come ready to
do your thing.
*SITE INFO:* No site or parking fee, but donations are welcome. Event
will begin on the green next to UC Santa Cruz's Porter College Hall,
near the large metal sculpture that looks like a squiggle (aka "the
flying IUD"). This is a dry site. No chairs or tables as yet grace the
green, so you may wish to bring your own. Site opens at 11am and closes
