The Fiftieth Year

Turkey Tourney -- Hawks Haven

November 28, 2015 (AS L)

Machado School,
Morgan Hill, CA

From The Page (October, 2015):

Come and fight off all that feasting! Greetings from Hawks Haven, in the congenial Barony of Darkwood! Please join us at our annual Turkey Tourney November 28, 2015 at Machado school in Morgan Hill.

Armor inspection will be held at 11am am.

The Mad Dog Melee starts at 12 pm and ends at 2pm. "Turkeys" will be awarded for belted and un-belted fighters.

There will be a foam-weapon melee for the kids, with prizes as well as period games.

Please bring festive comestibles to share for the post-melee leftover madness potluck revel. (Remember, no kitchen on site.) We will also be contesting the art of subtle courtly criticism – bring your best veiled insults, original and period preferred, for your entertainment during the repast.

And don't forget your live steel, because the bottle-cutting contest starts at 3:30 pm! We encourage everyone participating in the Bottle Cutting Contest to start saving your empty 2-liter bottles NOW and bring them along to ensure that we have plenty for all to slash at. (Or -if Thanksgiving revelries are at your house, this is a great re-use opportunity!)
