Saddle your warhorse, polish your armor, string your bow, grab
your lance, broadsword or rapier, and make the journey to the
Hocktide Emprise!   We celebrate the return of Sol with 3
days of martial activities on foot and horseback, including a
Summits War Muster and general merriment.  See our
website for comprehensive information about the event and all
Tourney details:  www.hocktide.com.

On Saturday, we proudly present the Hocktide
Mounted and Principality Equestrian Champion Noblesse Oblige
Tourney, consisting of three parts:  Pageantry, Travel, and
Combat (including Javelin and Spear).  Riders are encouraged
to participate in all or in part, and the overall champion may
become the Outrider of the Summits.  The only entry
requirements are authorization and a prize contribution appropriate
to your rank. 

Also on Saturday are the Glyn Dwfn Defender
heavy tournament, a Rapier tournament, an Archery Tournament (plus
general instruction for children/juniors) and A&S
classes.  In the evening, there will be Court and a bonfire
gathering.  On Sunday, there will be a Summits Muster war
practice and alternative martial equestrian activities before we
say farewell.

New this year!  In order to add more pomp to
the various contests, we will be holding our first Voice Heralds’ Prize
Competition
.  Heralds are encouraged to hire
themselves to equine or martial competitors for tournament
introductions or to volunteer for general event notifications; the
most talented and entertaining Herald will be selected by a panel
of judges and awarded a prize at Saturday evening’s
Court.  Invite your favorite Herald to Hocktide today! 
Use of a Herald during the various tournaments can influence your
equine pageantry score or add a life to your
tournament. 

There are Period and non-Period camping areas
on site, as well as potable water.  Camping next to horse
stalls is available and is a mandatory quiet area.  Fires are
encouraged in above-ground fire pits, and some ground fires will be
allowed in the war area only (less noise restrictions).  The
site is discreetly wet in period containers only, but safe behavior
is our highest priority when camping around horses.

The site opens to everyone 10am Friday and
closes at 6pm Sunday.  Merchants and those bringing horses may
arrive 3pm Thursday and/or depart Monday morning by prior
arrangement. Merchants are welcome with no fee, but a donation is
requested; contact the Event Steward to reserve a spot.
