Pearl Tourney with Armored Rugby and a Tailgate Party!

Supported by the canton that brings you the family focused It Takes My Child To Raze A Village, North Woods brings you an event with a more adult focus. 

It may or may not be obvious that the name of this event is a play on words. (hint: The words of the University of Michigan Fight Song.) Being North Woods, well it was inevitable. How could we resist?

New This Year

A Warlords tourney will create 2 teams that will play armored rugby. Points from Warlord's Tourney will count for points in Pearl Competition. Included is a half-time show! This is followed by a Tailgate Party Feast!

Categories for Pearl Competition:

  • Armored (Warlord's Tourney)
  • Rapier (Warlord's Tourney)
  • Archery
  • Thrown weapons
  • A&S (includes Brewing and Vinting)
  • Service (Half-time show)
  • Youth Armored
  • Youth Rapier

All Barons and Baronesses - landed or court - may bring their own team (or possibly buy mercenaries on site?)

Note: Yes - a Baron may field a separate team from the Baroness (this is strongly encouraged)

This is a wet site. Beer, Ale, Wines and Cordials are included in A&S competition.
