Valiant and Victorious

Last year when we attended the Medieval Festival, the knight we liked best, Sir Timothy, won the day.

This year, the kids were thrilled that he was back and even more excited that he was "our" knight, and they cheered him on with enthusiasm.

Before the tournament, each knight picked a lady to fight for and gave her a flower. Sir Timothy picked Grace, and she was delighted.

The games before the joust were all in fun, but the jousting was real. There is no doubt about it: Knights were tough.

Sir Timothy (on Monty - mustn't forget the magnificent horses) narrowly beat this guy (Prince Killam) and won the field. Erik got a broken lance signed by Sir. Timothy. I have no idea what he is going to do with it!

Sir Timothy, along with the other knights and horses, is a member of the Knights of Valour, a full-contact jousting group that has won world championships. They put on a great event.
