Danescombe Tournament of
Shire of Danescombe
Kelowna through Penticton, BC
Gentles be welcome! The Shire of
Danescombe invites you to our annual Tournament of Roses: a day
dedicated to the honour and grace of our inspirations.
Join us in Danescombe, Saturday March
17th for a day devoted to chivalry, honour, and the
power of inspiration. The Shire will host tournaments to determine
both Rapier and Armoured Defenders through their prowess in arms,
and the grace and honour of their inspirations. Both
tournaments will be preceded by a grand processional, in which
fighters will enter bearing the arms of their inspiration, and
present themselves and their inspirations to the populace.
The winners of the tournaments will be heralded as Defenders of the
Shire, and their Inspirations will be honoured for their role in
inspiring the Defenders to their victories.
The Shire will be offering a light lunch free
of charge to all those who attend the event.
Following the day of tournaments, and included
in the price of admission, the Shire will also host a wondr’ous
feast! Join us for an evening of food, entertainment and games as
we celebrate our new Defenders, and share our hospitality with
those who journey from afar to celebrate with us.
If you are journeying from out of town and
require crash space, please contact the Event Steward.

plenty to eat for all, including those who are gluten-intollerant,
and who are vegetarian. A sampling of the menu includes: pickled
goodies, meatballs as hedgehogs, a grande salat, turnips with
cheese, roast beast, and assorted finger cookies and cakes! There

Pomp and Circumstance! – A grand processional
is planned for both tournaments. But, with a twist – as this
day is dedicated to the glory of our inspirations, fighters and
their inspirations are encouraged to process in under the arms of
the Inspiration. All are encouraged to celebrate thier
Inspiration with banner, flag or shield. If your Inspiration does
not have arms of their own, use your creativity to show how much
they mean to you.
