"What a great event. Those who were brave enough to come and celebrate with those revolting "peasants" had a wonderful time.
There were many games of Hunker-hauser, target archery for the poachers hunting stuffed elk, stuffed boar and stuffed cows, Quail Racing and a Maypole.
And, of course, the annual Bread Joust. There were many "noble" warriors weilding their weapons of french bread. But in the end, there could be only a single winner.
The food was excellent and there was plenty for all.
It was a day well spent by the "peasants" of Caer Darth." - "Peasant" Juan Santiago
