There is perhaps no more evocative image of the Middle Ages than that of a warrior astride a mighty war horse and thus many will be glad to learn that Lady Sylvia du Vey, the current King’s Equestrian Champion has announced that Their Majesties, Gregor and Kiena, have rescheduled Their Equestrian Championship. It will now be held at the Northern Region War Camp, July 4 – 7, 2013 in the Shire of Glen Linn (Warrensburtg, NY). The Championship had originally been scheduled to be held at Panteria in the Shire of Panther Vale over Memorial Day weekend, but had to be postponed due to rainy and therefore unsafe conditions. Lady Sylvia has expressed a great deal of gratitude to the event steward and the Shire of Glenn Linn for so willingly helping to reschedule Their Majesties Equestrian Champions Tournament.
Throughout much of the East Kingdom the unofficial start of the camping season is Memorial Day weekend (this year it falls on May 24 – 27th) and the Kingdom Event Calendar boasts two excellent camping events for you to get out of your winter habitation and spend some time “on campaign” with your fellow medievalists. Soak up the late spring sunshine, get in the first big melee or woods battle of the season, shop ’til you drop, and get your garb and equipment a fresh infusion of wood smoke as you join in the revelry around the campfire.
Greetings Unto those good gentles attending the festivities at Mudthaw! We invite you to help in the effort to pad the war chest as the drums grow louder toward this Pennsic War! A fundraising effort will be taking place that will pay homage to our four legged friends. Those loyal steeds that ride into battle and those who stay by our sides in comfort. Make ready the fan fare as a great tournament approaches at the Coronation of Gregor IV and Kiena II! Your donation will sponsor one of the horses that will be taking part in the festivities at Coronation. You may bestow the honor on the horse of your choice if you are attending Coronation or you may send your honors to the steed with wishes of luck.
Cookies/Muffins suitable for horses will be the tokens for purchase. There will also be dog treats for your own four-legged companions as well as some gentle friendly fare. We encourage you to show your support and declare for these brave and gallant riders and horses taking the field for the celebration of the Coronation of our Monarchs.
All proceeds benefit the war chest.
