The Thirtieth Year

Pas D'Armes and Feast, Sponsored by the Company of St. George -- Mists
May 20, 1995 (AS XXX)

Tilden Regional Park
Berkeley, CA

From The Page (May, 1995):

As we desire to test our prowess and demonstrate our chivalry upon the field of combat, the Company of Saint George hereby offers a Challenge to any and all Nobles who will meet us in a Passage-at-Arms. "We beg all those noble knights and squires who are willing to proffer challenge, not to imagine for a moment that we are doing this out of pride, hatred, or malice, but in order to have the honour of your company and to get to know you better, a thing which we desire with our whole hearts." (J. Froissart, the invitation to the Tournament at Saint-Inglevert, May 1390.)

The Company will be arrayed to receive challenges beginning at 10:00 in the morning of Saturday, May 20, 1995. Each challenger, and likewise the defenders of the Company, shall bear with them into the lists a banner, or pennon, such as they may be entitled to carry, as well as the armour and knightly weapons required, being as follows: Shield, Sword, Axe, Mace, Poll-Axe, and Grete-sword. Challenges shall be received until 4:00 in the afternoon, at which time we shall retire to the feast-hall, where the honor and glory of the day will be relived, virtues extolled, and questions of Chivalry debated.

Site fee: $5 for the day, $10 for the feast; if you plan to attend the feast, you must reserve space in advance. We heartily recommend the feast - it is an integral part of the Pas D'Armes experience!
