This just proves it's true what people say........... if you keep something long enough it will come back into fashion.

OK, I've seen plenty of jousts, but all have been carefully rehearsed and staged. This stuff is pretty extreme!

So, the Bristol Ren Faire is having one of these events by special invitation. I got an invitation this week, and I can't go! I will be living in canvas that weekend doing RCAF! It was a special members only invite, and being filmed for some extreme TV show. There is no link from their website, because the general public isn't invited...Shite!: http://ww.renfair.com/bristol/
