The Provence of Golden Rivers would like to extend an invitation to our annual Championships. We are combining both heavy and rapier this year. Come and enjoy a day of fighting, learning and eating. We will be having two Arts and Sciences competitions and many informative classes. 


  • Fighting Kits – Items made by yourself or your consort for use in your kits. No documentation required but items must be what would be found in period. Submit a brief description and how each item would be used. Include as many or few items as you wish.   
  • What did you bring back for the Crusades – Create something that would have been found in the crusades. Please explain how and why the item would be used. Be creative. 
  • There will be the annual bard of Golden Rivers Competition. Bring your best piece and perform for your friends. All forms of the bardic arts are welcome, so bring your song, story, poem or interpretive dance.
