The Choosing of the new Fool!
o In the past, the tournament has been decided by things such as:
• One original limerick,
• Your best tavern joke,
• Your best overall joke,
• Your best DAD joke/Groaner!
• This year, perhaps some improv!
o The format for this year will be announced prior to the event – stay tuned!

o Saturday evening we will have an event to celebrate the new fool!
• If you are the new fool and do not imbibe, Ravenshore will provide a stunt liver.
• Prizes, a Potluck Dinner on Saturday night, and more!
There may even be sightings of the Woodwose – don’t miss him (or her?)!
