Freeze Off

Kamloops, BC

Autocrat: Conn McRoy device6535OP

Frolic and Feast at Freeze Off 2015!

M'Lords and Ladies, may your ears hear, and your hearts jump at the
news of the upcoming 2015 Freeze Off tournament! Nestled among the
sun drenched hills near Ramsgaard lays an oasis of forest and
fields, soon to be blasted with the colourful tents and frocks of
citizens galore as we gather to frolic, feast, and fight! Heed the
call and join the festivities. Ring out the harvest season! Or
simply gather to eat, fight, and be merry.

Gates open at 8am on Saturday, October 17 at the grand Arena of the
North Thompson Agriplex, 4856 Dunn Lake Road, Barriere, BC. For the
paltry gate fee of $15 (an additional $5 for non members please
make checks payable to the shire of Ramsgaard ), you will be treated
to a full day of classes on Saturday, the epic Rapier “Frozen Lily”
inspirational tournament, the stupendously silly “Wacky Weapons”
Heavy tournament, and for the second time – Archery and an A&S

“This is simply too much wonder in one day,” you say! But if there
is enough interest, we may be holding a Rapier and a Heavy tournament
on the Sunday as well! Join us for a feast of magnificent proportions
for only $10/person. Try and find prices like that for a
multi-course meal surrounded by hordes of your dearest friends...
The lovely Alisian at the hearth has a plethora of tasty treats to
make you salivate and grab for your feast gear. Reserve your space
soon, the more notice the lovely lady has, the more spectacular the

October is still lovely weather here in Ramsgaard, and for those who
are brave, there is plenty of camping space to lay your war weary
bones. Gates close just after 3pm on Sunday, and the Ramsgaard hosts
look forward to lazy Sunday morning visits.

For more information, or to book your space, please contact
HL Conn McRoy (Stephen Cole) at 250-320-8001 or via email

The citizens of Ramsgaard look forward to sharing the celebration!
