On Oct. 22 at Bolado Park in  Tres Pinos, Darkwood will be hosting our
annual Baroness' Masked Ball. The theme is All Hollow's Eve. The day will be
filled with fighting, dancing, games and other merriment. This year we will
be combined with Hawk's Haven's Turkey Tourney. We will have not two but
three turkeys available for the champions of day. There will be one for the
Chivalry, one for the unbelts, and for the first time we will be adding a
rapier list. The famous, or infamous, cutting contest will also be held (so
please bring your mightiest blades). There will also be a boffer tourney for
the next generation of warriors of our fair lands (bring boffers, gloves,
face protection, etc). Thought about period dancing? This is the perfect
event to try it for the first time.  Classes will be offered though out the
day, with the Masked Ball in the evening. The day will be completed with a
marvelous feast featuring many wonderful fall treats. Children will have the
chance to go trick or treating during the feast.  There will also be a table
decorating contest to see who can be the most creative.  Don't forget this
is a Masked Ball, so be creative, but if you forget a mask, don't worry
there will be supplies on site.
