      Landsknecht Musterung V
      (Eisental)
      June 17, 18, 19, 20 1999

      Once again the sound of cannon-fire and drums will herald the onset of
      war. In Eisental, the landsknechts have gathered at the musterung
      with the promise of good pay, plunder, and adventure. This year's
      musterung will be held at the Ukrainian Homestead, R.D. #2, in
      Lehighton, PA 18235. The rattan tournaments will feature a
      traditional double-elimination tourney with weapons of choice, a
      bear-pit, and a three-man great weapons tourney. Other pursuits will
      include a surprise archery scenario, a bardic bonfire, a codpiece
      contest (for real!), scheduled activities for children, and the
      merchant's area. The site also boasts a full-service bar and a motel
      at additional cost.

      For those early arrivals, the site will be open from 4:00 PM on
      Thursday, June 17. Troll will be open all day Friday and the site
      closes at 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 20. Saturday will feature
      breakfast, a lunch sideboard, and a hearty feast in the evening. The
      feast hall is limited to 125 gentles. Please note, alcohol consumed
      in the hall must be purchased from the Homestead. A buffet-style
      breakfast will be served on Sunday.

      As usual, merchants are most welcome to ply their wares, and should
      include a request for space with reservation. There is room for
      merchants both indoors and out, at no additional charge. At the
      request of the Autocrat, merchants and campers with period pavillions
      will be given choice spots around the tourney field.

      The costs for this weekend of fun and debauchery is as follows:
      On-board: 2 nights, $18.00; 1 night, $16.00. Off-board: 2 nights,
      $14.00; 1 night, $12.00. Children 7-14 are half-price, and kids 6 and
      under are free. Inquiries regarding the limited number of motel rooms
      available on site should be directed to the Autocrat, Lady Ysabeau du
      St. Wandrielle [Roseann Zona, 405 East Abbott St., Lansford, PA 18232,
      tel: (570) 645-8661]. Please make checks payable to: SCA, Inc.-Shire
