Greetings, Good Gentles!
It's time, once again, for the Canton of Borderwinds' annual Protectorate and Prize Tournament! We would be extremely happy to welcome all to our event, which determines who the next Lady of Love and Beauty (or Lord of Love and Honor) and Canton Protector will be!

This year, the Protectorate is for locals only, but our Fabulous Prize Tournament- running concurrently- is for all who want to show their fighting prowess and Chivalry, enjoy a day of friendly competition, or even just practice against someone new. The site is beautiful, with grass and lots of trees. Be aware that there is also a deep-sided creek onsite.

There will be several contests, open to ALL:
1. Most Chivalrous
2. Best/ Most Entertaining Death
3. Best Song/Ode/Poem using the words LOVE, HONOR, and CHIVALRY
4. Yummiest Desert ( due to judges' severe allergies, NO COCONUT products, please.) 
5. Sweet and/ or Savory Loaded Breads (any kind of bread with edibles in them other than grain.Ex.: bread with fruits/nuts/cheese/etc. No coconut products please.)

There will be a potluck BBQ after the Tournament. Bring your favorite meat to grill, and a dish to share.
