First Day of the Sherwood Forest Faire Jousting Tournament 2014

Saturday, March 29 was the first day of the two day competitive jousting tournament held at Sherwood Forest Faire. Jousters from the New Riders of the Golden Age and the Knights of Mayhem jousting troupes as well as a couple of jousters unaffiliated with either troupe were there to compete. There were some spectacular hits including two double unhorsings.

The tournament continues on Sunday, March 30. For more information about the faire and the jousting tournament, check out the Sherwood Forest Faire website and Facebook page.

[Editor's comment: The jouster facing Charlie Andrews in the picture and video was previously mis-identified as David Schade. It is actually Ryan Scammon. My only excuse is that I created this post at the end of a long day at the faire while struggling to overcome a massive sinus infection. I offer my sincere apologies to both David and Ryan.]

  2. Hey there! The knight in the last pictures and video (Riding the Percheron, Marcus) going against Charlie is Ryan Scammon, not Dave. I have to say, this was a fantastic tournament! The crowds were electric, the knights were on fire and that squires dodged a lot of shattered lances. A great time was had by all!

    1. You are absolutely correct, and I was absolutely mistaken. Thank you for pointing out the problem. The article has been updated with the correct identity.
