Tir Righ A&S and Bardic Championship

September 22, 2017 to September 24, 2017

Penticton and Kelowna B.C.

Autocrat: Yrsa Ketilsdottir
Their Highnesses of Tir Righ invite you to bear witness as A&S and Bardic candidates compete for a place as Their Champions. In addition to the competitions there will be space for both Rapier and Armored fighting. Merchants are always welcome at no additional charge. Please register with the Event Steward for space.

As the schedule comes together and we know how much space we need for judging, we officially have room for classes - 2 classrooms for sure. If you would like to teach a class please let us know. If you would like to do a drop in class or host a stitching circle please let me know.

Artisans of Tir Righ, there will be a Super Six Largesse Competition happening at Tir Righ A&S! Come and show off your talents as you vie for the Princess' Choice (winner to be determined in court). If you wish to help out your principality but do not wish to enter the contest, simple donations are always welcome!

Here is the Schedule Framework.
There is an indoor and an outdoor space for fighting. There is no firm schedule for the fighting but the space is available all day (except the indoor space is busy during court).

Food: The shire is providing a Turkey soup and a Vege soup with buns for lunch free of charge. There will be coffee and tea all day long. Over the dinner hour - because of the tight judging schedule - there will be pulled pork in the room during the Laurel's meeting and a few servings for sale in the kitchen.
There are MANY food establishments close to site so if you have dietary needs or your tastes are for something different we can assist you in finding something.
