Knights of Valour

bobconnrennfaire

Kim, Connor, and I traveled South on Sunday to the Fishers Renaissance Faire. We had a great time browsing through the various vendor tents and Molotov the Gypsy put on a hell of a show, but I was there for one thing — the joust.

The Knights of Valour put on an amazing display of martial skill and we were treated to numerous shattered lances and even an unhorsing. While our champion, Josh “Wolfman” Avery, showed good form, it was ultimately Matt Hiltman who won the day.

If you’re never had the chance to take in a joust, there’s really nothing quite like it. Two men, atop mighty destriers, attempting to drive their lances into one another’s breastplate, looking to unseat their opponent and ride tall through this violent collision.

It gets the blood pumping, let me tell you.

I’m already counting down the days until next year.
