It went well, the weather was beautiful. Perfect for singing around a bonfire.
The numbers were fewer this year than last unfortunately, especially with so
many leaving right after the lists or court. They missed out on some of the
best parts of the event.

The Chivalric combat had fighters of all levels of skill and expirience. Viscounts
Axel and Galen graced us with their fighting. I didn't get to play 'cause I busy
tending to the feast.

On the rapier field were Don Brendan (the current Queen's Champion), Don Navarre,
and Dona Leah amongst the worthy combatants.

Since His Majesty was unable to attend, Court was graciously held by Their
Excellencies of Elfsea, Llewllyn and Zara Zina.  It was fairly short and
feast was served immediately after.

We had a large bardic fire going as well as gambling and a wonderful A&S competition.

The new Champion of Black Oak Keep is: (drum roll) Don Miguel O'Porto, Centurion.
The Cavalier is: Don Brendan McEwan, Queen's Champion
The Artisan is: HL Zara Zena, Baronness of Elfsea
The Huntsman is: Don Brendan McEwan (much to his surprise)

bring tupperware. 

It was hot and evidently tasty and actually served on time!
