GALACTIC CHAMPIONS

A long time ago,

in a Barony far far away….

The wild LOAT endlessly terrorized the good people of Lions Gate.

The brave CYNERIC and ARIANNA, Guardians of Peace and Justice,

assembled Their CHAMPIONS to bring balance back

to the radiant CAPITAL of An Tir.

Knights of the Shield, and Warriors of the Blade,

Guardians of the Bolt, and Defenders of the Axe

All are SUMMONED to join us on the hallowed

May the Fourth

To decide which CHAMPIONS shall carry the banner of Lions Gate

Against the COMING DARKNESS

 

Lions Gate “Galactic Champions” will be held on May 4th, 2024 at Warner Loat Park in Burnaby, BC. Beyond the four primary championship tournaments, all with themed surprises and goodies, we will be hosting a variety of activities including: Paint-your-own illuminated bookmarks, Stormtrooper Shoots, Nerf Combat of Sword and Bolt, Lightsaber Combat Demonstrations, and thematic delights aplenty!
