Altavia Anniversary May 3, 2003

Come join Altavia in the bloom of youth as we celebrate twenty years with a whirl of May flowers. We will be doing everything with flowers. Join the lovely ladies of Altavia as we festoon ourselves with floral wreaths. Test your knowledge of The Bard’s blossoms with a quiz on Shakespeare’s flora. We’ll even be eating flowers! Dame Selene is sponsoring a cooking contest for the best dish containing edible flowers – anything from candied violets to broccoli.

But don’t think this event is just for sissies! There will be plenty of opportunities to impress the cheering throng with your prowess and chivalry on the field. Lists for Heavy Weapons, Lights, and Rapier will be held. However, there will be a twist. These will be single elimination tournaments unless a fighter has a consort to grant a second life. Bring a friend!

Starting immediately after closing court, we will serve a hearty barbecue buffet-style dinner. Following the meal, the Monsters of Dance™ will invade the hall, while outside around the firepit, a more sedate (?) bardic circle will tickle your ears and your fancy….
