Great Helm

Saturday and Sunday, March 12th & 13th, 2022

 Great Helm is upon us!

 It is time to choose the new champions for Tir Ysgithr’s Baron and Baroness!
We will once again gather to watch our brave combatants take the field as they fight for the honor of becoming Captain of the Guard, Rapier Captain, Youth Champion and Hardsuit /Rapier Guardsmen. Details of the tournaments will follow closer to the event in consultation with Their Excellencies and Their current Captain, Sir Gregior.

 This year, we will accomplish all within one full day of Tournaments at Himmel Park.  Opening court will be at the discretion of Their Excellencies, Ruadhan and Thyri, with tournaments to begin immediately following.

 Sunday will see the return of the Gawd Awful Grail! 

 Wear your gawdiest garb and come help shun the plague!! Prizes for the gawdiest garb will be had by the best!

Unbelted fighters, come show your skills to the knights and bring your best fights to vanquish the plague from our lands!! Anyone can fight but only a Tir Ysgithrian can take home the grail! The weapons style will be chosen at random on Sunday, so Fighters are encouraged to bring all their weapons.


Due to Parks and Rec no staking requirements, we encourage everyone to bring banners, tapestries and anything to make a modern popup look and feel like a pavilion.  Prizes for the best decorations will be awarded.
