From The Page (September, 2014):

Come one, come all, and witness (and participate!) in the second annual West Kingdom Championship. We combine a day of fun and adventure with competitions for archery, equestrian, and rapier to determine the next set of Champions to represent the Kingdom of the West!

Competitions will be held, designed by the current Kingdom Champions, to identify the Archery, Equestrian, and Rapier Champions for the following year. Participants are encouraged to test their skill and compete in as many different disciplines as they wish! The day is designed to allow for those interested to compete in one or all of the Championship challenges. Come out and show the Kingdom what you have to offer and how you will gloriously and graciously represent our wonderful home in the coming year.

On Saturday there will be a mini-clinic on lance handling offered by Lady Ella d'Artois the current Kingdom Equestrian Offi cer in Trimaris. Bring out your horses and your lances and learn some more tips and tricks!
