The Meridian Grand Tourney 2007 was an incredible event. The tournament started with the cool crisp morning fall air blowing and caring the many proud banners aloft. Everyone could sense the excitement as over 80 fighters took the field for honor and glory. Over 300 good gentles attended filling the many colorful sun shade pavilion surrounding the field. There were also a host of activities. Each of the orders not only sponsored one of the tournaments, but they also provide tasty treats for the populous. A great many also brought there A&S projects to work on and display field side. No matter what your interest everyone had something to entertain themselves with.

DragonCon 2007 is over...but what fun.
I took no pictures...as always when the great costumes came by I did not have a camera. The one I loved this year was the evil White Queen... amazing dress and hair. We did have some knights on crusade and some Stormtroopers on march and many many others. This was great fun.
But I did not get a picture of them either... just the memories. Ahhhhh.
I will be going again next year....for sure!
