Event details
Spring flowers into summer.  Their Excellencies, Baron David Vázquez de Valençia and Baroness Mistress Suzanne Neüber de Londres, set out across the lands of An Dubhaigeainn to collect tithes on their way to the Pennsic War. 
The Canton of Hawkes Reache welcomes them with a Summer Faire, replete with two fencing Tournaments, including a Pas D'Arms Tournament to select the new Baronial fencing champion; the Baronial Thrown Weapons championship; an Archery practice with Royal Rounds, Heavy Weapons if a marshal is available and many other games and activities for all.  Merchants are most welcome to help the populace get into fine shopping form for Pennsic.  The Canton invites you to bring your chairs, blankets and shade to take respite upon the lawns, participate in the wide variety of activities, and visit with old and new friends. 
There will be a hearty day-board served throughout the event.  No feast will be served, yet fear not!  None shall leave hungry, as the table has groaned under the bounty of our day-board these past seven years!
The Tournaments:
Fencing
Our current Baronial fencing Champion, Lord Ronan FitzRobert (Scott Petritsch), is hard at work designing the formats of the fencing tournaments.  There shall be two Tournaments:  the Hat Tournament and the Pas D’Arms Tournament. 

Inspections and authorizations for the Tournaments will begin at 11 AM.  At noon, just prior to the start of the Hat Tournament, the Canton will once again hold the ever-popular Hat Auction, where members of the populace can bid for the favor of a fencer as symbolized by the fencer’s “hat”.  A prize is awarded to the bidder whose fencer wins the Hat Tournament, which shall immediately follow the auction.

At the conclusion of the Hat Tournament, there shall be a short respite, followed by the Pas D'Arms Tournament, which is based on a demonstration of period skill.  Everyone is welcome to participate.  The Pas D’Arms Tournament places a strong emphasis on pageantry.  Each fencer in the Tournament must be introduced by a herald.  It is expected that each fencer’s herald will be vividly "over the top" (as in “A Knight's Tale”).  A prize and recognition will be awarded for the best heraldry. 

The demonstrations of both skill and pageantry will help Their Excellencies to choose the next Baronial Champion from amongst the An Dubhaigeainn participants, and the overall Tournament Champion from amongst all participants.

Please contact Lord Ronan by e-mail at spp516@hotmail.com or by phone at 631-456-2028 before 10 PM with any questions. 

Thrown Weapons

Our current Baronial Thrown Weapons champion Lord Ronan FitzRobert (Scott Petritsch) will have a very busy day as he will be running the Baronial Thrown Weapons championship as well.  He promises tests of skill and accuracy!  For more information, please contact him by e-mail at spp516@hotmail.com with any questions.
