      Please join the Canton of Poll na Gainmhe under the shady trees of Holt Park, in the restful small town of Holtville in celebrating its final Insandity Anniversary. Bring your armor, weapons, and your best strategy for winning the competitions planned for all fighting forms, including the ever popular and competitive annual Croquet Tournament. Set up your pavilion or the shade of your choice under the majestic trees in the peace of this oasis in the desert. Fight or watch others fight, play croquet with past champions. With a little luck, you just might be the new Desert Croquet Champion and take possession of the Memorial Croquet Mallet, or just relax and enjoy good company and a fun day. Guilds are welcome to put out displays to attract new members or just display their artistry. Pets are welcome, but must be on a leash at all times.
