St Georges Day Jousting Tournament in Australia

Post by Rod Walker »

Hi all, just thought I would post some opics of the jousting tournament we had on the weekend. My wife Michelle and I as Full Tilt The Original Sport of Kingshosted this tournament. It was sanctioned by the International Jousting Association

It was a teams event with our team of 4 from Australia (the Order of the Sable Hart) vs a team of 4 from New Zealand (the Order of the Black Rose).

Australia won the teams joust 142-115 and my wife Michelle won the highest individual score.

Here are some quick pics.

Hi Rod,
The pictures were great, it's fantastic to see the great quality of kit you all have. Incidentaly I met you at the 2005 Upper Hutt joust and was on the ground as foot crew, I was the annoying English chap who came back to Callum's. Hope your well and nice to see you riding!
