MERMAID’S TOURNEY
SHIRE OF FALSE ISLE
Powell River, BC

July 5,6,7, 2002

The Shire of False Isle invites the Populace of An Tir to their Fifth Annual
Mermaid’s Tourney. The emphasis for the tourney is pageantry and gallantry.
Heraldic display on helms, shields, surcoats, banners, etc. is highly
encouraged. This is a camping event. There will be a Pas d’Arms Fighting
Tournament, which will include Heavy and Rapier fighting. There will also be
an Archery Competition and a Boffer Competition. We are thrilled this year
to have HL Zoran Dolmar of Dragonhead, (Puppeteer Extraordinaire!) coming to
entertain all, with his puppet shows. Games and a scavenger hunt are also
being planned. We will have a communal meal on Saturday evening so we can
all gather together to sup and socialize. Several cooking braziers will be
available.

When darkness falls on Saturday we will have Moonbagging, shoot Flaming
Arrows into the Ocean (it’s perfected now!) and a bardic contest on the
beach. The reward for our Arts & Sciences competition will go to the best
tribute to our Mermaid, be it in song, verse, drawing, carving…….feel
free to be creative. The site will be Kent’s Beach Campsite. It is located
right on the ocean (not too far away from False Isle’s famous Mermaid under
the sea) and only moments away from the Saltery Bay ferry terminal. This is
a beautiful site on a lovely beach.

It is highly recommended that you plan on arriving early at the ferry terminal, as this is a very busy time of year. Also The International Choral KATHAUMIXW will be celebrating their 10th international festival, which could generate extra traffic.

I have ‘acquired’ the job of organizing camping spaces for False Isle’s
Mermaid Tourney (July 5-7, Powell River, BC). I will be taking
reservations for:
– camp spaces within the ‘Enchanted Area’
– camp spaces for large encampments
– camp spaces for those with extenuating needs
(others do not need to reserve).
Reservations will be taken up until Wednesday, July 3 after which it’s
take your chances when you arrive. I would greatly appreciate it if you
contacted me well before this date. I will respond to all requests for
space, so if you do not get a response from me within two days, you may
wish to contact me again to verify I got your request. (Note: I will be
away Friday June 28 to Sunday June 30 so will not respond during that
time.) Please contact me with the information listed at the bottom of
this message.

ENCHANTED AREA
This year we will have an ‘Enchanted Area’ around the eric. If you will
be camping in a period pavilion, you may reserve space within the
enchanted area.

LARGE ENCAMPMENTS
Those who require a large space for their encampment may also reserve
space in advance. This is recommended if you expect to arrive late.

EXTENUATING NEEDS
If you have some special requirements (wheelchair access, etc.), contact
me and I will see if we can find a spot that meets your needs.

RESERVATIONS:
Contact Alicia le Wilfulle – email jharcus@prcn.org (preferred) or phone
604-483-4642 (ask for Alicia or Stephen).
Please provide the following information:
* Camping area – enchanted or regular?
Note: no mundane looking tents, etc. in the enchanted area, please.

* Space needed – with and without guy lines, etc.?
Note: space may be tight in some areas, so please only ask for the space
you need. If you have guy lines extending out from your tent, please
provide dimensions both with and without guy ropes as we may ask you to
cross guy lines with your neighbor in some cases.

* If space is not square/circular, is your access on the long or short
side?
Note: this allows me to ensure you can get into your tent :-).

* Do you have special requirements? (wheelchair access, level ground,
etc.)?
Note: most of the areas I will be reserving are fairly level or with
only a very slight slope. If you must have an area without any slope,
etc. I will try to accommodate you.

* Estimated time of arrival?
Note: I will try to be on hand Friday evening and Saturday morning to
direct you to your reserved spot. Knowing when you are likely to arrive
(I know we have ferries involved here and therefore you may not arrive
when expected), it will better enable me to be on hand when you arrive.

* Best way/time to contact you if I need more information?
Note: Please provide me with as much information as possible as to your
needs. I will be reserving space on a first come, first serve basis.
If I have to contact you because you didn’t provide enough information,
you’ll be further down the list (I’m going to be quite busy so if you
make more work for me, I’m likely to get grumpy!)

To all my friends, whether I have met you yet or not, coming to the Mermaid’s
Tourney, greetings!

There will be a Bardic Circle around the fire on the beach on Saturday evening
where all are invited to join in and sing songs or tell stories.

In order to promote both creativity and “periodness” there will be a prize for
the best filk to a Period tune. Writing new words to popular tunes was a very
common practice in the Middle Ages (when it was referred to by the Latin term
“contrafactum” – “counterfait”) and Renaissance. Some documentation will be
required to establish that the tune is indeed “Period.”

If possible, give your documentation and intention of competing to Stephen of
Hunmanby prior to the Bardic Fire.

If you have any questions or need assistance finding period tunes, please
contact me.

We look forward to seeing and hearing you at the fire!

In Service to the Music and the Dream
Stephen of Hunmanby
