There will be an SCA Personna Wedding between Lord Cian the Smith, "Tempus" and Lady Hadassah of Starhaven Saturday Afternoon at 3 PM in the Feast Hall.
The Feast is based upon Thracian cuisine because St. George was supposedly Bithynian, a Thracian tribe in the NW area of modern Turkey on the Hellespont (Dardanelles). The Feast Minister has drawn upon their 6th century culinary traditions to lend the Feast an ambience of the period of our Hero.
The Fighters will be led in the Procession by their ladies on a chained lead. Period style, to show their devotion to the Chivalric virtues of courtesie to and protection of ladies alle.

Helmschau, Helm Show, displayed the finery of Crested Helms for the delectation of the Ladies. And also gave them the opportunity to obtain redress for any "Discourtesies" perpetrated by the Helms' owners by placing a token on the Helm which caused the Local Baron to call him up to redress his acts. We give it a positive slant by giving each lady a ribbon rose to place on her favourite Crested Helm.
Highest Rose Count merits its owner a St. George and the Dragon Fired Stained glass SunCatcher.

The Ladies' Gallery also names the Pavilion with the Best Heraldic Display earning a Prize of a pair of Heraldic Banners.

Following the Behord, there will be a Baston Course List consisting of pairs of Fighter and Mount who tilt at the Barriers with Lances, on foot. In period the jousters practiced on foot (safer than ahorse) tilting at rings and the quintain and betimes each another as we do or using wooden horses or boats,

There will be many other prizes for the Crested List, or Behord and the Baston Course. The Victor of the Behord receives the illustrated novel Dragonhenge by Eggleton & Grant, and first choice of the Prize Table. The Baston Course Victor receives a leatherbound, gold edged Diary and first choice at their Prize Table – if the jousting pairs were auctioned then their "owners" pick the prizes.
There are separate Prize Tables for the Behord and the Baston Course. Then the fighters, or rather, their ladies choose from the Prize Table, usually 40 to 50 items, in order of the final ranking in the List. There are usually at least 3 rounds of prize choosing.

Donations are solicited for the Prize Tables – garb, bling, Feast gear, etc. gratefully accepted.
