Invitation to a BIG HAREY* DEAL - March 13, 1999
Greetings to all good and mischievous gentles near and far.
The Incipient Cantref of Ynys y Gwaed (under kind and humane sponsorship of the Barony of Ruantallan) invites all to attend and participate in BIG HAIRY* DEAL (a.k.a.: March Hare), March 13, 1999, 12 noon until 11 p.m. (Atlantic Time). (All those who stay until 11 p.m will get to help us with clean-up!)
In the true HAREY* tradition, there will be remarkable events in the unparalleled HARREY* distinction!
FENCING Competition: To gain and/or retain the title for the new HAIREY* champion will be run by the most able, fearless and hairy Lord Stefan Locke.
CHILDREN'S Activities: Our autocrat, Katherine of Tameside, sayeth these activities include a Boffer Tourney. Parents must give their permission for their children to participate. If parents are unable to attend BIG HAIRY* DEAL events with their children, they must appoint a guardian and give permission for children to participate in the Boffer event.
The Arts and Sciences activities thusly include, but are not limited to, the 2nd Annual Favour-making contest. We will provide the cloth, thread, floss, needles and "sizzors" and you provide the talent! (There is no word yet on the subject of the favours!).
As daylight dims and night sets in, all are invited (though they must pay if they wish to eat) to the BIG HARRIE* FEAST.
The feast will include enough food so no one will go hungry, but please help us with the following:

FROM the BRIDGE, follow the TransCanada Highway to Charlottetown. Watch the turn lanes as you will CONTINUE through the city just past the University of PEI. There is a set of traffic lights for the campus. After that set of lights, get into the LEFT TURN lane.
At the next set of traffic lights (intersection of University and Belvedere) turn LEFT onto Belvedere Ave.(Landmark: A Subway shop is on the corner.) Continue on this road through the 1st. set of lights at Mt. Edward Rd. intersection.
At the 2nd set lights (Brackley Point Road), advance RIGHT to face the building marked "LEONS", TURN Left onto St. Peter's Rd. (known as Route 2).
Continue straight on St. Peter's Rd. PAST the next set of traffic lights.( It is a major intersection for St. Peter's Rd. and the By-Pass) (A Landmark is Kentucky Fried Chicken 'palace' on your right).
Prepare to take the 2nd LEFT onto MacRAE Dr. and take the first RIGHT onto AVONLEA DR.
The East Royalty Community Center is the building on the corner of MacRae and Avonlea. It is a white building with gray trim. There is a large parking lot.
IF you get lost, side-tracked, hi-jacked by highwaymen or chickens (fire-breathing palace guards for the Kentucky King), call us at (902)629-1513 after 12 noon.
The site is the East Royalty Community Centre; 1 Avonlea Dr.; Charlottetown, PEI, Canada. The name "Malcolm J Darrach" is on the building
(***Harey spelling is "inconsistent" for many reasons, but mostly "We wanted YOUR attention!")
