Fools Tourney (Chico, CA)

Sunday April 7th, 2013 to Monday April 8th, 2013

The Barony of Rivenoak wishes to invite all to join us for a day full of fun and adventure in our majestic Bidwell Park.  The King and Queen of Misrule will be chosen through Rivenoak’s arcane art of Divination by Cupcake.  The King and Queen of Misrule will then be properly invested and the revelry will commence.   We will have heavy and rapier fighting, games, challenges, silliness, fun and foolishness.  Yes, the Rivenoak Boffer Smack Fish will be present. This is Rivenoak’s Newcomer’s event.  We look forward to having lots of Newcomers, in a high-profile area of our lovely park.  So, break out your weapons and armor (heavy and rapier), as you may find an opportunity to quest for prizes in the forest, if you are indeed foolish enough.  There will be a silent auction with some fantastic items to challenge your best bidding war skills. Bring your finest (or silliest!) samples of your Arts and Sciences for the A&S display, and join our Barony in a day of revelry.
