In the dawning of our world, the last pair of dragons flew through skies of sapphire blue. With their great ages one landed to fall into his last sleep. Grief stricken for her loss, the last mighty Lady Dragon cried tears until she as well passed for this world into myth and legend.
In their beauty and grace we gather every year to remember them. With honor, chivalry, selfless service and the passing of knowledge, their memory lives on with the Shire of Stan Wyrms' Dragon's Tear Event. We would be honored to have you join us July 8th, 9th & 10th. Site will open noon Friday & closes 3pm Sunday. This is a wet site in period containers with above ground fire pits allowed according to the fire hazard rating for the area at the time.? Also bring swim gear since there is a small wading creek close on hand.
Squire Giovanni will run the Heavy Tourney as he steps down from carrying the Shires Banner & the War hammer BAM. Who will be next to carry the Honor of the Shire & let their story be added to BAM to be carried down through the ages. The Championship Tourney will be open for all un-belted fighters. We will also host a Grand Tourney Champion open to all fighters un-belted & belted. Our traditional prize of a sword can be won For the Shire Heavy Champion and a most valued prize for the Grand Champion.
Test your skills in Archery as well and do us all proud. Last year we had a tie for the Archery Champion. With much skill it was decided after 8 rounds of the contestants staying equal between a crossbow & recurve. I would love to see that kind of skill shown once again this year. A unique prize most valued by archer's to be won.
Light Fighters come one and all & show your lightning quick skills with blade.? Show off your skills and grace for all to see.? A wonderful prize is up for the best to win.
