Video from the First Day of "Lysts on the Lake 2013"

Despite heavy rains the night before, "Lysts on the Lake 2013" started as planned on Thursday, October 31. The tournament will include tilting(what most people consider actual jousting), a Mounted Melee and a Chivalric Equitation Obstacle Course(similar to a Mounted Skill at Arms course). A total of 10 jousters are competing in this year's tournament:
  • Steve Hemphill -- whose company, a'Plaisance Ltd., produces "Lysts on the Lake"
  • Dave Wise
  • Federico Serna
  • Galen Bevel
  • Jeffrey Basham
  • Jim Myers
  • Peter Barclay
  • Sarah Hay(who came all the way from Australia to compete)
  • Scott Wilson
  • Sean Gulick

Several other people will be competing in the Mounted Melee and/or MSA-course, but will not be competing for overall tournament champion.

Here are a few short videos from the second session of tilting during the first day of the tournament:
