UPCOMING PERFORMANCES AND EVENTS
Renegades & rabble-rousers! Are you ready for 2020?!
Well...so we were! But I don't think any of us were ready for the pandemic.
So unfortunately the shows were cancelled and clinics are postponed.
So what are we up to?
Training - physical and mental
Training - equids and hounds and felines
Dreamin', schemin', discussion', plannin', and constructin'.
Yessir, you can bet your sweet boots once the Knights of the Tempest are unleashed upon the word again 'tis going to be a veritable maelstrom.
And you will definitely want to get your tickets early for that.
The Knights of the Tempest Fundraiser Gala/Kryssi's Birthday Celebration was cancelled! However, donations to support patriarchy-smashing live theatre are still greatly appreciated. Please swing by our Support Us page.

THE TRIUMPHANT CONCLUSION OF THE 2016 MEDIEVAL MOUNTED GAMES CLINIC SERIES!
January 8, 2016
Kryssi spent the last 6 months teaching students to throw spears, handle a lance and use a sword a'horseback! Each clinic concluded with a competition to demonstrate the student's learned skills, and at the end of the series overall high point prizes were awarded! Prizes were leathercraft goods handmade by Kryssi herself at the Double H Ranch Saddle Shoppe. Congrats to Morgan: High Point Champion, Claire: Reserve High Point, and Andrew: Runner-Up!
A JOUSTING DEMO & CLINIC TO RAISE MONEY FOR AT-RISK YOUTH IN NOCO!
Just what the title says. Kryssi & Bryan (aboard Cherokee and Lachlan) demonstrated light armor jousting for a group of riders. Demo was followed by Kryssi instructing students in the medieval mounted games. This success led to the beginning of the Knights of the Tempest Medieval Mounted Games Clinic Series!
