[ATE] The Hunt

Come and join us this Sunday (December 16, 2012) for THE HUNT – A Pas d'Armes in the Barony of Tir Ysgithr.

There will be a very great Passage of Arms called THE HUNT whereupon all challengers (Venans) shall hunt noble prey from among them (Tenans). Those who intend to fight in the lists must acquire a free invitation from the Baron and Baroness of Tir Ysgithr or must request the ability to fight from the Seven Knightly Virtues Incarnate, represented as Courage, Loyalty, Courtesy, Honor, Franchise, Prowess and Faith. These ladies shall be on watch for examples of the virtues they hold dear. All shall be conducted with good camaraderie and with good cheer.

There will be fighting opportunities for all armored combatants, fencing combatants and youth combatants. Fighters need not have a specific kit, but are encouraged to dress in their best fighting armor appropriate to their own persona style. The display of pageantry is highly encouraged with banners, colors and the like.

The combat in the Hunt is for the expressed pleasure and entertainment of the consorts' gallery.  The Gallery will be hosted by the Lady Virtues who will bring light snacks and LIBATIONS for the pleasure of the consorts.  

We will have snack foods provided for sale by the College of St. Felix to include meat pies, vegetable pies, and non-alcoholic beverages for a reasonable fee.  Proceeds will benefit the College!

Site fee will be $3.00 per adult; $1.00 per child 8-17 years old. The non-member surcharge will apply.

Site opens at 9:00 am Sunday morning and closes at 6:00 pm Sunday evening. Site is discreetly wet; period containers are encouraged; NO GLASS bottles.

Himmel Park is located at 1035 N. Treat Avenue, Tucson, AZ .
Court will be at the discretion of Their Excellencies of Tir Ysgithr.

We will set up the Baronial pavilion, consorts' gallery and the fighting eric just South of the Himmel Park Library. Please bring your own shade to add to the festivities. Parking is available in the parking lots and on the curbside.
