SCA Easter Grand Tourney, April 21-25, 2000

Let all lords, barons, knights, squires and men at arms of Ildhavn, Darchester, Southron Gaard, Reannag Fhara and of all the lands in the southern reaches of Caid, and all others of whatever Kingdom of the Known World who are not banished or enemies of the King our Lord, know that on the twenty-second day of April at the field known as Rimu Park, in Southron Gaard, there will be a great festival of arms and a very noble tourney with crests, coats of arms and much show of arms of the noble tourneyers, as is the ancient custom.

The event went off well, despite the weather, although attendance was a bit low. I don't have all that many photos of things because I was mostly busy doing things and unable to take photos.
