The young adults of Atlantia bid you welcome to a day of tournaments to celebrate martial prowess and chivalry. The Shire of Isenfir invites one and all to attend the third Tournament of Chivalry on 15 April 2006 in Madison, Virginia>
As the focus of martial activities, Atlantia's Knights shall challenge any who would face them on the tournament field in a variety of weapons forms. A small area shall also be available for those who wish to ply their skills outside of the tournament. Though no points will be kept during the tournament, Her Majesty and her Ladies will be casting watchful eyes upon the field, and taking particular interest in chivalric acts. Prizes shall be awarded for valor and prowess.
