CROWN WAR OVER, KING DIRK VICTORIOUS (10/10/99)
The sun sails high over the battlefield and the bodies that litter the plains. In amongs the dead walks a figure of nobility followed by survivors of the onslaught. It was only a few months ago, when the child Queen, Cerdwin, offered to Her champion the crown in exchange for defending Her kingdom. If he should be victorious and survive, She would pass the crown from her tired brow to his.
Fergus, once of Avalon, now of Khatovar, led his crew to a great battle. In the end, he and what remains of his crew, limp home in defeat. The one saving grace in defeat was that the battle was hard won by the new king.
Now that the healing has begun in Avalon, eyes look toward the celebration of victory and the corrination feast. (Date TBA)
In other news... The Kingdom of Avalon has been removed from the University of Akron. In a nearly unanimous opinion poll of attending members, Trustees and officers, it was agreed to cancel Tuesday practices until a decision has been made on where the new facilities and home will be. Efforts are being made to find an indoor facilities at low or no cost to our organization.
To compensate, Avalon will be meeting EACH and EVERY Sunday at Hyre Park (Ellot, OH). Normal battle protocalls will be observed. Interested and new members should get their early for training and instructions. Battles will START at high noon. Checkin and weapons check start at 11am and close right before the battle.

Battles will be held EVERY Sundays of each month at Hyre Park in Ellet, unless noted otherwise. Because of the onset of winter weather, arrows will NOT be used if you can see your breath fog in the air. Arrow heads are considered too hard at this point.

ARTS & SCIENCE
There has been talk about starting an Arts & Science Guild (for lack of a better name). This is in hopes of bringing the non-combatants and the more creative people farther into our world. Any support or interest is accepted and highly encouraged. BTW if someone can come up with a better working title, please let me know.
At this time contact your local web master for additional info or ideas.
I am trying to organize a demo group to make a showing at Stan Hywet Hall. We would like to arrange a demo once a month at Stan Hywet (a tutor mansion on 65 acres of land). Those interested should contact me. A brief historically correct persona history should be prepared. Garb should be accurate (at least know what century and country your clothes are from). Additional bits of history is optional, but highly encouraged. Please no fantasy characters (ie I will NOT be an elf that day). If you lack an idea, simple peasant folk are encouraged. (peasents fought for home & hearth, king and country too ya know) This will not be limited to Avalon members. If you are from out of town, you will be welcome to fight.
11/4/99 I have to apoligize for my neglect of the web page. Issues, both related to and not related to the game have encroched on my free time. I've been wanting to revamp the page for a while anyway. So pardon us while the dust is flying.
11/3/99 Because of recent developments over the last few months, the Kingdom of Avalon has been removed from the University of Akron property. We are currently looking for a new home and have a few possibilities, which include an indoor facilities. We'll keep you posted.
I have everything that may have ended up at the Troll Booth (Rag 13). If anyone can describe the item, I can try to get it back to them.
