Thanksgiving is trotting towards us and timidly tempting our taste-buds with the tantalizing yet tender taste of turkey! Unfortunately, buying a turkey at your local grocery store just doesn't speak great tales of heroism and martial prowess. Finally, you can bring home a turkey that will pay tribute to your awe-inspiring sword-work!
Hawks Haven Turkey Tourney
November 3, 2007
Morgan Hill, CA
Autocrat: Michael of Hawks Haven
The site opens at 10 am. Fighting begins at 1 p.m. The site closes at 6 p.m.
Site Fee: There is no site fee, but donations are gratefully accepted. ($5 recommended donation)
Three turkeys will be awarded at the Turkey Tourney: One for the top belted fighter, one for the top unbelted fighter and one for the top rapier fighter! Throw your armor and weapons onto your noble and valiant steed and drive on down to the Canton of Hawks Haven!
Before the fighting starts, we will be hosting a Helm Lunch Auction! All fighters are encouraged to create a picnic for two. Your meal will be displayed next to your helm and auctioned off to the highest bidder - who will then enjoy both your tasty meal AND your delightful company! All auction proceeds will be used to support future Hawks Haven events!
After all of that noble fighting, be sure to stick around and enjoy a live-steel bottle-cutting contest! Bring your live-steel weapons and any spare two-liter bottles.
Finally, participate in our Groveling Contest! Grovel before Their Excellencies, the Baroness and Baron of Darkwood!
