Fencers, Fighters, and Artisans! Come demonstrate your prowess and talents at the Tourney of Love. Three competitions to test your skills. A winner for each, though only entrants for all three may vie for the coveted pink baldric as the “Champeen O’ Love”.

Who will challenge Syr Cedric of Thanet this year for the admiration of the Ladies of the Gallery?

Fencing, Rattan, Arts and Sciences competitions are the hallmarks of this tournament. Participants of the tourney may enter to win one or more categories. However, the Pink Baldric will be awarded to the gentle who excels in all three and displays that which the Ladies of the Gallery feel exemplifies a true Champion of Love. The whim of the Ladies of the Gallery may very well weigh heavily on the outcome of the tournament; after all, this is the Tourney of Love.

Regarding the A&S competition, any period projects created in the past two years are welcomed. Display or perform your best works! Documentation is encouraged but not required. Tell the viewer about the historical basis for your project and what materials and techniques were used in period to create the original item your piece is based on. Then explain your process and the decisions you made in regards to construction, materials (if they differ from period materials, tell what you used and why), and techniques used. You can also talk about what you might do differently next time.

Site Opens: 10 am
Site Closes: 10 pm
