Dragon’s Mist Defender Tournament
DMDT  June 6-8
Washington County, Oregon

Help!  The shire of Dragon’s Mist has been raided!!! Maidens have been
captured and held for ransom by raiders. Small raids continue across the
bridge to the village. The warrior who shows the best skill at arms,
bravery, and chivalry defending the bridge becomes the new shire defender.
They will then lead the rescue.

Heavy and Rapier bridge battles against raiders. Those who do not wish to
vie for the defender title are welcome to be raiders. There will be an
archery tournament for the Shire archery champion. Final scenario is a
battle lead by the defenders to rescue the maidens. The winner of this
battle gets the ransom (and/or maidens).  There will be battles plenty,
maidens fair, merchants, and fun for all. Volunteers for raiders and maidens
are welcome.
