Turkey Turney

Saturday November 28th, 2015
Morgan Hill, California

Come and fight off all that feasting at the Post-Turkey Turkey Tourney! Greetings from Hawks Haven, in the congenial Barony of Darkwood! Please join us at our annual Turkey Tourney November 28, 2015 at Machado School in Morgan Hill.

Site opens at 9:00 am. Armor inspection will be held at 11:00 am. The Mad Dog Melee starts at 12 noon and ends at 2 pm. "Turkeys" will be awarded for belted and un-belted fighters.

There will be a foam-weapon melee for the kids with prizes, as well as period games.

Please bring festive comestibles to share for the post-melee leftover madness potluck revel. (Remember, no kitchen on site.)

We will also be contesting the art of subtle courtly criticism – bring your best veiled insults, original and period preferred, for your entertainment during the repast.

And don't forget your live steel, because the bottle-cutting contest starts at 3:30 pm! We encourage everyone participating in the Bottle Cutting Contest to start saving your empty 2-liter bottles NOW and bring them along to ensure that we have plenty for all to slash at. (Or, if Thanksgiving revelries are at your house, this is a great re-use opportunity!)
