Sails appear on the horizon, led by great dragon headed prows, and studded with the shields of victory. The warriors have returned home to celebrate the turning of the year with family and friends. Here, at the dawn of the new year, we invite you to share our hearth to welcome home our Nordic kindred for "Yule 2012: A Homecoming Celebration".
Site Address: Thomas Jefferson Unitarian Church 4936 Brownsboro Rd. Louisville, KY 40222
Spend your morning warming up in scenarios inspired by various Nordic excursions throughout history, then face both your friends and enemies in a breadth of tourneys to determine our new Yule King or Queen. Tourneys include:
- 2 Man - 1 Dagger
- Single Blue
- Punch Shield & Javelin
- Random Draw
- Peasant & Blue
- Sword & Board
- Mongolian Wrestling
The top three fighters in each tourney receive points and extra points will be awarded to the fighter considered to display the “Spirit of Yule” throughout the event. The fighter with the most points at the end of the tourneys will be crowned Yule King at our Feast.
"A Homecoming Celebration" will feature tastes of the Nordic homelands to welcome our kin and guests alike to our holiday hearth. Our holiday meal will span 3 hearty courses and feature a variety of traditional and holiday foods.
