The fighting for the day will be a fun tournament, hosted by our Lord Protector. He's got some wonderful plans to make sure your fighting day is grand!  The Court itself will be lots of fun with many contests, guessing who is who under the masks, and we'll have our annual AUCTION (Donations cheerfully accepted!). An Arts and Sciences Table will be avilable for displaying our Barony's bounty.
