Lions Gate Champions – Barony of Lions Gate 2023
The Barony of Lions Gate welcomes all to a tournament to choose our next Heavy, Rapier, Thrown Weapons, and Archery Champions!
Lions Gate Champions is traditionally held at Warner Loat Park, so this year the theme for the event is the Loat!
We will be exploring the earliest documented history of the Loat as well as how it has evolved over the years through storytelling and artistry.
Several of the Championships, such as Archery and Thrown Weapons, will incorporate this idea into the tournament.
The Artists village will be a space for artists to gather, work and share their process.
We will also be holding an Arts and Sciences competition!
Artisans from far and wide are encouraged to create a Loat in the medium of their choice.
The symbol of the Loat has become intertwined with acts of service.
On a smaller scale, continuing the Lions Gate tradition of service, we want to invite you to try out service types and activities that you may not normally engage in with the Loat Service Challenge. You will be asked to challenge yourself to provide service and participate in a broad range of activities, from set-up and sitting gate, to the various martial disciplines, and helping out wherever possible.
