It's the LUSTY MONTH OF MAY. Come a-Maying, practice the arts of chivalry; share in the festivities of sports, fighting and courtly love; enjoy music and gaiety and feasting. There will be a Defenders of the Heirs tourney, for both rapier and heavy, where fighters will fight for a child (not their own) for the title of Defender of the Heirs. An armoured 3 legged race and an obstacle course.
Make and bring your Great Horses and palfreys (stick horses, of course) to compete in races and Best in Show. For the more genteel arts: hand kissing, the ladies shuttlecock tourney, and a favour contest. The Baronial A&S competition is Dancing. And some surprises too.
