Laurel's Prize Tourney

Having missed the chance to get involved with last year's LPT, I've decided I really shouldn't make that mistake again. So...

The next Laurel's Prize Tourney will be held on May 6th in Bergental (western MA). The notion behind the LPT is that Laurels issue "challenges", where each challenge describes something to try doing. Entrants enter the challenges, and get a chance to talk with the Laurels about what they've done. That's the primary focus, IMO, but the at the end the Laurels give prizes (as they choose) to the entrants who they feel have impressed them the most.

There are already a number of challenges that have been issued, and the list continues to grow. I've decided to do two matching challenges: one to reconstruct a Renaissance Dance and one to reconstruct a period game. Yes, I'm throwing down the gauntlet to those of you who have been dithering about trying your hand at reconstruction -- give it a try, and let's talk about the results.

I can provide some general suggestions about how to go about doing it, although obviously I'll have to let you do the details on your own. If you have questions about how to do this, feel free to ask -- this is a topic I'm rather fond of...
