Feast Pics

The feast was not only a meal, we also had a "medieval faire" to go along with it. Each family set up a booth or activity for others to enjoy. There was fencing, catapult, archery, chess, wood-splitting, jousting, coats of arms, and a few others. We also had a group come and display swords and armor and demonstrate how chain mail was made.

Robin Hood and the wood splitter


Fair ladies and archery.... notice my friend Laura cringing, and I don't even have the bow strung! :)
This is probably my favorite picture from the event... the knights and woodsmen protecting the maidens! It was so cold that Sarah kept her cape wrapped up around her, and we never really saw her dress!
