The Fiftieth Year

White Shield Tournament -- Darkwood

March 12, 2016 (AS L)

Bolardo Park,
Tres Pinos, CA

From The Page (March, 2016):

One of the brightest of lands in all the Mists is the Barony of Darkwood. Mountains, forests, ocean, the random garlic plantation….

Is it any wonder that folks travel from the far corners of the Kingdom to come visit?

So, come out again to play with Darkwood as they host their Whiteshield Tournament at the beautiful Bolado Park

There will be incredible fighting! Both heavy and rapier lists with prowess and chivalry at its best. At his Majesty's request, we will doing the heavy list in the style that will be the official format for Crown tourney just two weeks later. Please see His Majesty's posting on this new format.

The traditional and epic silent auction will take place during the day. Come see what incred­ible goods are being donated to tempt your purse. Donations for the auction can be brought day of.

In the evening, a grand feast celebrating the cheer and generosity of Darkwood as well as honoring its current and past Barons and Baronesses shall be crafted by the amazing Seraphina van Eldstrom.

I am encouraging folks to show their Darkwood pride and dress in black and white. Certainly *not* a requirement, but just something fun to do.
