goes home empty handed)
List opens at 9am
Tourney begins at 10am
Games will be held after lunch
We humbly ask that you join us on this day for the beautiful changing of the autumn leaves for a day of fighting, fun, friendship and whimsy! All who attend are requested to show plenty of fancy and pageantry, don their best clothes and trappings and bring a sense of fun! On this day we will hold a Heavy Weapons Tourney, a "Passage of Arms" to test the mettle of any who are brave enough to challenge the elevation of the Mountain Pas' and stand with honor before their Peers to meet the challenges set before them and earn the right to be The Champion of the Mountain Pas'!
It is our hope to challenge and inspire our fighters to great feats of skill, honor, pageantry, and remind them that humor and whimsy are also desirable qualities for any noble. There will be pixies and other woodland creatures about who will be watching closely for the best death and other things...and remember we want humor and whimsy.
The Highland games are open to all and will start at 1 pm Games will include: Sheep throwing, Rolling pin toss and Bocce Ball just to name a few.
If you have a game you would like to bring to add to the fun please feel free to do so.
Closing cleanup at 4 pm
