"There once was a saint named Geronimus

Whose name has become quite synonymous
with fevers unjust
and nasal disgust
His saint-day will soon be upon us!"

Pagus Sancti Geronimi Anniversary Celebration and Tourney

March 6, 2005 Pagus Sancti Geronimi invites one and all to come and join us as we celebrate our anniversary on March 6, 2005.

Our own Saint Geronimus was so plagued by his afflictions of the nose, he did remove the offending member. On this, his day, we recognize his sacrifice and attempt to do him honor with games and contests devoted to the nose! We challenge all of the populace to enter our arts and science competition and help solve his nose woes by designing a faux nose. Any medium, any materials may be used; imagination only required.

We will also have a children's art coloring contest, on site, in honor the Their Excellencies Malcolm and Robynne; a "pin the nose on the saint" game; and a "common scents" contest.

Additionally in the spirit of our renowned patron we will hold our tradition best miracle contest. It is said that those that pray to Saint Geronimus for a miracle will have it granted - only with an unfortunate twist. We encourage you to tell your true story of a miracle gone awry to Baron Malcolm Alberic. We also invite all to compete in our best relic of St. Geronimus, which will be added to the saint's reliquary for display at future anniversaries. Documentation is required, please.

As it this weren't enough fun, we will be holding our traditional tissue and nose melees. Fighting will be round robin for the rapiers and double elimination for the heavies.

A raffle will be held in lieu of a helm auction.
