  Debate Announcement

The Weevil State University Chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism is proud to announce that it will be sponsoring a debate between the ten current potential Democratic candidates for President.

Thad “Wolvenslay” Bointnut, WSUSCA Chapter President and a freshman majoring in Lead Smelting, told this reporter that he is very excited. “I am very, very, very, real excited about this opportunity to get all of these great candidates together to discuss what’s so important to each of us as we dwell here in the Shire of Craggy Cahddargh.”

Bointnut has sent invitations to each of the candidate’s election committees, and reports a very impressive response rate. “My varlet Knute [Bob Smith, 08Pre-law] and I sent out a nice invitation that we did over at Kinkos, and so far we’re hoping for a big bunch of them.”

As of this date, only Senator Bob Graham (D-FL) has responded, expressing his regrets, and two other invitations were sent back for postage. “That was Meadowmoon’s [Gina Boudreaux, Latex Science] fault, because it was her job to lick the stamps, and she said she did, but I don’t think she did.”

Bointnut said he is hopeful the candidates will address some of the concerns of his group. “I have been pushing for months now to get someone to talk to us about instituting some sort of FDA requirements for mead. We really can’t get good mead, and it ruins the whole mood. I also want them to talk about instituting some sort of medieval arts training in elementary schools, because I know how much I would have liked that.”

Asked why the SCA chapter is promoting this debate, Bointnut said, “Well, it just seems to fit—all of the candidates seem to really firm grasp of the past.” Bointnut was asked whom he will support in the election. “Well, it’s really too early to say, but I kind of like Clark, because he was in the military, and I figure he knows how to handle a sword pretty good. And Dean, because he’s like some kind of a Berserker or something. I don’t know.”

The debate is scheduled for Sunday, October 19, 2003 at 7:00 p.m. in Classroom 512 of the Ted McGinley Annex. Tickets are $5, with all proceeds going to replenish the Shire's supply of aluminum foil and to pay for the refreshments.
