It is a time for gathering of the clans and Celtic games. A tournament will be held at noon to test the mettle, hone the skills and liven the spirits of our men and maids at arms, brave and fair. Contests of strength, skill, stamina and kilts! Don your best Celtic dress. Kilts, Irish dresses etc. Learn the meaning of such terms as 'spun wool'. Individual contests - axe-holding, tug o'war, Scottish wrestling and Best knees in a Kilt. Three person teams - tug o'war and heavy fighting (melee). There maybe a twist, (so sayeth the Mad Baroness) RULES: Enter as many contests as you want, the more entries, the more points you accumulate. Points will be awarded for entering and for winning.
