Bhakail Champions and Commons

Hosted by Barony of Bhakail - Media, PA

Event date: August 27th, 2017

Event Last Modified: June 18th, 2017

Event details

Their Excellencies of Bhakail, Baron Rowen and Baroness Suba, call upon their Champions of Arms and Rapier - as well as their Ladies' Champions of the same - to create a day of challenge upon the field to determine successors.

Come join the Barony of Bhakail and friends as we hold Championships for the Rattan and Rapier martial arts and see the mantle passed from Champion to Champion.  Our existing Champions will determine the format of the tournaments this day, with more information to come along those lines.

The dayboard will be potluck, and everyone should contribute a dish for 4-6 people to share, with a list of ingredients.  If anyone would like to coordinate potluck efforts, please let Mael Eoin know.

Garb is encouraged but not required, being a low-key, free event, though it pleases Their Excellencies to see pageantry on display in the park.

Site Opens: 10am
Site Closes: 6pm
