Freeze Off

October 18, 2014 to October 19, 2014
Ramsgaard

Kamloops, BC

Autocrat: Asilian
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 wi...ll 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 proportions for only $10/person. Try and find prices like that for a multi-course meal surrounded by hordes of your dearest friends... 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 spread.

October is still lovely weather here in Ramsgaard, and for those who are brave, there is plenty of camping space to lay your war weary bones. Gates close just after noon on Sunday, and the Ramsgaard hosts look forward to lazy Sunday morning visits.

For more information, or to book your space, please contact HL Asilian (Adina Mounsey) at 250.318.9604 or via email at iam_adener@hotmail.com

The citizens of Ramsgaard look forward to sharing the celebration! See you on the field.
