The fall tourney season is quickly approaching. Come join the Shire of the
Shadowlands to kick off the season as we celebrate Shadowlands Shenanigans
and 35th Anniversary this Saturday, September 1st. Compete in the
chivalric, rapier, and archery tournaments. Come prepared for anything
since you never know what the Shire may do! Partake of an A&S class in the
covered pavilions.

Chivalric tourney will be bear pit with 7 rounds including unusual weapon
style. Rapier tourney will be a ribbon tourney including off hand sock
puppet. (Bring your own or make one site.) Archery tourney will have 6-8
rounds at various challenging targets- crossbows and handbows both welcomed.

Participate in diverse entertainments including active games, dancing, and
a potluck dinner in the evening. The shire will be providing meat. Bring
something to share for the potluck. Enjoy the lush shade of this public
city park with permanent pavilions, restrooms, and water access. No
showers. Site is open to the public at all times. Monitor your possessions.

You do not need to bring your own pavilion. Some tables provided; please
bring your own chairs.
