Battle of the Bottony Cross XI
The Baron and Baroness extend their warmest invitation to all and sundry to join them and His Majesty, King Cornelius von Becke to celebrate Saint Florian de la Riviere's 10th Anniversary
at the annual Battle of the Bottony Cross XI.
The Battle of the Bottony Cross melee tournament returns once again, and this year it lands on the most auspicious occasion of Our fair Barony's 10th
Anniversary! Enjoy a fine afternoon of melee fighting with His Majesty and an honourable company of cohorts. After the battle is won, join in the merriment of the traditional tavern atmosphere of "The Masters Inn", where you can enjoy hearty, belly warming fare and plenty of far fetched war stories.
This year, an exciting challenge is extended to any member of the populace who cares to submit samples of their best and favoured brews. His Majesty shall decide upon the most tasty offering and a prize will be bestowed upon the victor!
