Sunday we will be running ALL of the Queen’s Champion Tournaments. Yes, you heard right; the site has the capabilities of running all the tourneys on the same day. So after an evening of festivities and camping, join us for Heavies, Rapier, Youth, Equestrian, Archery, and Thrown Weapons Queen’s Champion competitions.
From Lachlan of Cromarty
The event announcement states that the coronation would be outdoors and that all of the Queen's champion tournaments would be held at the site. The weather did not cooperate with this. A constant drizzle required that coronation be held under the ramada and the archery and thrown weapons tournaments weren't held. Before the event, the equestrian championship needed to be canceled as well to safeguard the health of the horses from a virus outbreak. >sigh< Despite all of this, the armored combattants seemed to enjoy crashing about in the rain, and the rapier tournament was successfully completed in a corner of the ramada.
