    1. Hello Garrett. You should join "The Jousting Life" Facebook group ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheJoustingLife/ ). It's a good place to make the contacts that you need to get started in the sport. I don't know of anyone jousting in Kansas, but that doesn't mean there isn't anyone there. You might check with the local chapter of the SCA ( http://sca.org/ ). Some SCA groups include jousting, and they might be able to help you.
