The Baronial Guard Tourney will be held at this event. (Baron Patrick has advised it will be single combat - not teams as done in the past. He will provide additional information at the event).
Otherwise,the day will be given over games, dancing and conviviality. There will be a potluck feast with beast and/or bird provided.
