[WES] Spring Captaincy

Warmer weather is finally here and so is the time for tourneys!!!! Tourneys, do we ever have tourneys!!! Join us for our annual spring contest to choose a Captain for the Winter's Gate militia and a Rapier Commander for the Winter's Gate Cavaliers.

In addition, there will be a second rapier tourney for the honor of being Baroness' Champion. These will be L'Emprise du Loup tournaments, so here's your chance to upgrade your kit, polish your armor, and look as shiny & authentic as possible.

Along with the tourneys will be classes! Mistress Margery will have a class on making Viking whipcord. Mistress Annora will be journeying to our fair lands, and has most graciously offered to teach a class on the history and uses of saffron, as well as a second class on how to do research and documentation.

A&S contests are cordials and food with flowers. On Saturday, there will be a picnic lunch auction. Contributors, please bring an enticing lunch for 2. Dinner is potluck - please provide a dish that will serve 8, along with a card listing ingredients.

The second drive on the right is to the canoe rentals, and that parking lot can be used for loading. To reach the pavilion, follow the signs. From the main parking lot off Airport Road, meander towards the back left corner of the park.
