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.
