Dragonslayer

July 05, 2013 to July 07, 2013
Montengarde

Calgary, AB

Autocrat: Peter von Setzingen

 

 

Ill omens have been seen. There is unrest in the Barony. The old Baron and Baroness have stepped down. The new liege lords have taken their place, but they are untested.

 

And the Dragon knows this.

 

From its lair in the mountains it smells the unease in the Barony, and would strike at us while we are divided. With razor teeth and fiery breath it would sunder our lands and destroy our people. Baron Kraig and Baroness Una call upon their people to unite as one to face this threat to land and life; to take up arms and defend homes and children. And they would call upon their people to choose two champions – a champion of sword, and a champion of arrows – champions with the strength, courage, and honour to slay this Dragon and protect the Barony and its people for the year to come.

 

The omens all point to a summer battle, therefore Their Excellencies would invite you to join them, July 5-7 to choose their champions and slay this encroaching menace.

 

During the day there will be a Heavy Championship; an Archery Championship; the always popular archery “roving range”; a rapier tournament; an archery night shoot; youth combat; youth activities; a thrown weapons tournament; a bardic tournament, and A&S activities. Royal Rounds will be run on the field range throughout the weekend for those wishing to record scores. Due to the mundane rules of the club, crossbows are not permitted.

 

This year will also see the return of the Heavy Fighter Intro contest. There will be a prize for the best introduction of a heavy fighter entering into the Dragonslayer tournament lists. The fighter does not need to be vying for Champion. Also, on Saturday night, we will once again hold a Torchlight Charity Tournament. More details to follow.

 

The Green Cauldron will be on site providing delicious meals from Friday supper to Sunday breakfast, however no supper will be provided on Saturday. For menus and pricing, you can find them here: http://thegreencauldron.webs.com.
