Here is a nice shot that Neb took of our friend Devon as she was cantering down the tilt towards an opponent today at the Gig Harbour Renaissance Fantasy Faire. Emphasis on Fantasy of course. But Devon was great! She's jousting for the AJA at the moment (this is not an endorsment by me of the AJA, simply a mention of them, and their site) , because she's a masochist, and she loves to joust! Needless to say, when this shot was taken she wasn't actually going to be hit by her opponent, it was a "game" in which the other rider held the shield and wore a helmet. Since Devon wasn't going up against a lance, no need for the shield or helmet.
We also met folks from the "Acadamia della Spada" which we hope will develop into other interesting venues. All in all an enjoyable day spent at yet another Renaissance Faire.
