Frolic and Feast at Freeze Off 2014!

M’Lords and Ladies, may your ears hear, and your hearts jump at the
news of the upcoming 2014 Freeze Off tournament! Nestled among the
sun drenched hills of Ramsgaard lays an oasis of forest and fields,
soon to be blasted with the colourful tents and frocks of citizens
galore as we gather to frolic, feast, and fight! Heed the call and
join the festivities. Ring out the harvest season! Or simply gather
to eat, fight, and be merry.

Gates open at 8am on Saturday, October 18 at the grand fields of
Grandview Acres, 3499 Long Lake Road, Knutsford, BC. For the paltry
gate fee of $15 (an additional $5 for non members please make
checks payable to the shire of Ramsgaard ), you will be
treated to a full day of classes on Saturday, the epic Rapier
“Frozen Lily” inspirational tournament, the
stupendously silly “Wacky Weapons” Heavy tournament,
and for the first time – Archery and an A&S Champion!

Will there be Thrown Weapons? How about Cut and Thrust? I can’t say
… but there are rumors…

“This is simply too much wonder in one day,” you say!
But alas, no, it is not! Join us for a feast of magnificent

The lovely Sine at the hearth has a plethora of tasty treats to
make you salivate and grab for your feast gear. Reserve your space
soon, the more notice the lovely lady has, the more spectacular the
