The theme this year is the Hundred Years War. There will be games and activities related to this theme, so start thinking about which side you wish to support – the French or the English. Keep in mind that the Delftwood Baron is English, but his lovely Baroness is French... :) Alliances shifted frequently during this time period, which could make for an interesting day.
There will be a variety of fencing tournaments, including the selection of the Delftwood Baronial Fencing Champion in a one hour bear-pit tournament with wounds retained. Other tournaments will follow. The site opens at 9am, and closes at 9pm.Click Here for the schedule of events!
