Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye!
Let all people of An Tir, and of all the known kingdoms, who are not banished or enemies of the king our lord, know that there will be a great festival of arms and a very noble tourney, both mounted and on foot, with archers, crests, banners and horses covered with the arms of the noble tourneyers, as is the ancient custom, hosted by the very noble and very powerful Barony of Madrone.
There will be five different tournaments at the Emprise this year, all inspired by the 1460 treatise of René of Anjou and overseen by four noble judges.
A hand-crafted prize will be presented to the overall winner of each tournament.
Emprise XVI will be at a new site this year in Granite falls, WA. The Emprise is now a camping event! Activities will span from Friday, September 28 through Sunday, September 30 2018. More site info.
Please note that only service dogs are allowed. For the safety of the horses and riders, dogs are not permitted near the horse paddocks nor in or around the arena, and must be on a leash at all times.
