[WES] Turkey Tourney

Join us at the Canton of Hawks Haven's annual Turkey Tourney on November 1, 2008! One turkey will be awarded to the top belted fighter and one to the top unbelted fighter. Finally, you can bring home a turkey that will pay tribute to your heroism and martial prowess!

To add a little dramatic flair to our tourney, we would love for all fighters to bring along a banner or pennant with their device (AND A PORTABLE HOLE TO SUPPORT IT) to display during the fighting!

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 meal AND your company! All auction proceeds will be used to support future Hawks Haven events.

Stick around and enjoy a live-steel bottle-cutting contest! Bring your live-steel weapons and any spare (EMPTY, WITH CAP, OR RE-FILLED WITH WATER) two-liter (PLASTIC) bottles.

This event is being held in a public location and we are expecting some public attendance. To help introduce the mundane community to the SCA, please bring examples of your SCA hobbies. We would love to see fine examples of period needlework, dancing, music, leatherworking, armor or anything else you'd like to introduce to a potential new SCA member!
