The envoys of the heart should be
The noble deeds of chivalry; -
A daring charge, an escalade,
A knight or banner captive made;
A pass against a host maintained,
A name through trials borne unsustained-
Thus love most eloquently speaks;
This is the homage maiden seeks.
 



  

 

 

Heraldic shield for the Shire of Endewearde   Shire of Endewearde
   Tourney of Love

   Saturday, February 18, 2012
   9:00 AM to 10:00 PM


Event site is the Brick Church at 126 Union Street in Bangor, Maine

GENERAL INFORMATION

The coveted pink baldric of the "Champeen O' Love" has been held for two years by Lord Ané du Vey. It is well past time that his opponents come forward and attempt to win the affections of the gallery by besting Lord Vey in order to win the baldric for their very own! Verily, it is time to once again meet mid-winter to fight, fence, and make merry.

Fencing, Rattan, and Arts and Sciences competitions are the hallmarks of this tournament. Participants of the tourney may enter and win one or more categories. However, the Pink Baldric will be awarded to the gentle that excels in all three and displays that which the Lords and Ladies of the Gallery feel exemplifies a true "Champeen O' Love." The whim and affections of the Gallery members may very well weigh heavily on the outcome of the tournament; after all, this is the Tourney O' Love.

Held at the historic Brick Church, we offer in your entrance fee light snacks during the day and an "evening board," featuring stews, breads, and other hearty winter faire. Attendees are encouraged to bring a pot luck item for dessert! Please bring your feast gear!

Site opens: 9:00 a.m.
Site closes: 10:00 p.m.
