Their Excellencies Sim and Magdalen invite you to the Barony of Tir Ysgithr’s annual Knight Light Tournament. We will be holding a helm auction which includes all fighters in attendance (Heavy, Rapier, and Youth fighters). The event is a fundraiser to help keep the lights on for our Tuesday night practice. The tournament formats will be determined by the number of participants, but it will include weapon of choice. Prizes will be awarded for the winner and their financer. The festivities will begin at 6pm instead of the usual 7pm . Royal Court will begin at 630pm and the helm auction will follow at around 7pm, beginning with youth. We will continue to add fighters as they arrive. Baronial Court will close out the night at approximately 10pm.
Grilled hotdogs and burgers will be available for a small donation.
Their Excellencies also encourage all participants to display their heraldry and add to the pageantry of the tournament as best they can. Donations of prizes are greatly desired and side dishes or desserts to round out the table will be gladly accepted, as well assistance in setting up, tearing down, and manning the grills.
