Feast of the Dragon
FEAST OF THE DRAGON
April 23-25, The Incipient Canton of St. Georges
Unto all of the Populace of the Known World, the Incipient Canton of St.
Georges poses invitation to come and
celebrate the spirit of St.George, with a weekend of fighting, feasting, and
revelry in the beautiful springtime
foothills of South Carolina.
Of course any celebration for St. George must include fighting! All fighting
events will be based on three
man teams. Included in this tourney will be a DRAGON BATTLE, in which a three
man team will challenge “St.
Georges’ Dragon”(a five man team tied together to form the body of a dragon).
All phases of the tourney will be
worth points, and the winners of this combat will be dubbed “St. Georges
Dragonslayers” and will be presented the
beast’s heart at feast. The captain of the winning team will also be awarded a
lance in honor of St. George.
There will be a hound coursing. Please contact the Huntsmistress if you
wish to bring your Greyhound
for this event.
The A&S competition will cover dragons: illuminated, on garb or just about
any other form you can think
of. Since St. George is also the Patron Saint of England, Moscow, and
Ethiopia, the next category will be for
tassels based on designs from any of these lands. Of course there will be an
open category, so come and show off
your latest project! Also, simply because it is far too rare, we will be
holding a competition for practical period
footwear; the judging for this will be discretionary and all items must be
