- Something Fishy This Way Comes...IV
(Lord of the Rivers III and Rampart Riot II Tournaments) (Ivyeinrust,
June 3, 1998
This just in from the Bailiwick of Ivyeinrust! We have obtained
historic Fort Mifflin (no street address) for a fourth year of fun and
a relaxed day. Once again there are rumors of an intrusion into our
peaceful port from hostile forces. The Bailiwick spies are most busy
to determine from whence the threat arises! Event staffs are
currently in discussion with both the Barony of Bhakail and the Shire
of Caer Adamant to plan joint activities and to put our best feet
forward during the day as the site is open to the public. Activities
currently being planned include both a heavy weapons and rapier
tournament. Weapons inspection is scheduled for 11:00 AM. Fencers
take note; this site provides many unusual opportunities including
ramparts, gates, bridges and more!
As the site is so close to Phila. International Airport we will have a
the Dragons" competition with a prize to the winner.
This year we have arranged to serve a hearty luncheon at 11:30. Note,
this is not an off board meal to all. The on board fee is $10.00 for
adults and $4.50 for those under 12. The site fee is $5.00 for adults
and $2.00 for those under 12. No separate fort fee will be charged
for those who can show proof of SCA membership. To participate in the
lunch an advance reservation is required. (Lunches will not be sold
the day of the event.) As the site has limited facilities our
alchemists have been hard at work developing disposable feast gear
which will be provided. The site is dry. We will start the day at
10:00 AM and close at 4:00.
The luncheon by Lord Harlequin Tomfoolery will be served at 11:30 and
will consist of cold roast beef, ham, hearty vegetable soup, breads,
butters, cheeses and fresh fruits. More than enough to fortify those
participating in the day's marshal activities.
Advance reservations should be sent to the autocrat Lord Lorcan
Dracontius (John Saint-denis) at 2035 Kater St., Phila. PA 19146. You
must include a SASE to receive a gate pass which, if on board, will
also serve as your token for lunch.
(215-731-1884, dracontius@...). No calls after 9:00 PM..
Merchants are most welcome to ply their trade at this event. We have
arranged for easy access to the fort inner grounds. There will be no
separate merchant's fee. Please contact the autocrat for details.

want to be headed towards Philadelphia International Airport. From

From the south take the exit immediately after Phila. Airport, and
stay in the right lane. Airport exit lanes will merge with you,
continue to move to the right. Just prior to crossing the Platt
Bridge you will see a sign for Island Ave. *

the left turn at the Hilton Hotel. When the road dead ends make a
left turn. Proceed about 1/4 mile and make a right turn at the UPS
