Danescombe Tournament of Roses

February 15, 2014

Penticton and Kelowna B.C.

Autocrat: Chiara Fiamma device6593OP

Gentles, be welcome!  The Shire of Danescombe invites you to our annual Tournament of Roses.

Join us on Saturday February 15th, 2014, for a day devoted to Honour and Inspiration! The Shire will host tournaments to determine both Rapier and Armoured Defenders through their prowess in arms, and the grace and honour of their inspirations.  Both tournaments will be preceded by a grand processional, where the fighters will present their inspirations (and themselves) to the populace.  The winners of the tournaments will be heralded as Defenders of the Shire, and their Inspirations will be honoured for their role in the Defenders’ victories.

The Shire will be offering a light lunch free of charge to all those who attend the event.

After the tournaments, the Shire will also host a wondr'ous feast! Join us for an evening of food and entertainment as we celebrate our new Defenders and share our hospitality with those who journey from afar.

If you are from out of town and require crash space, please contact the Event Steward.
