So come all ye Bards, Fighters, Fencers, Archers, Throwers of weapons, Makers of things (A&S), and Sellers of stuff, and those who enjoy watching. There will be a knowledge tournament (check Blackstonemountain.net for more details)for the fighters which will prove interesting to watch as well. And don't think we have forgotton about food...a roasted "Piggy" at feast to feed all the hungry gentles. A two part Bardic competition will be held following feast to entertain the masses. All will come to glorious fruition with the launching of wishes and dreams in the redemption fires of the Wicker Man.
