Originally held in February (Valentines Day), Daffodil was a premier tournament of the An Tir tourney season. Regularly, the winner went on to become the An Tir sovereign. The date was later moved to March to avoid conflict with Estrella War and to improve weather expectations. The advent of Ursulmas in January removed its 'premier' status.
This is the Barony of Seagirt's prime armoured and rapier tournament event, where the Defender of Seagirt and Captain of Her Excellency's Own Grenadiers are chosen. This is also the time when applicants for the Baroness' personal guards (Sergeant, Yeoman, or Gallant) present themselves.
This year's Daffodil Tournament and Dance has been CANCELLED. Please check back for updates regarding rescheduling.
Originally known as "Bitterwaters War" held on Salt Spring Island, Sealion is the annual war between the Barony of Lions Gate (Vancouver) and the Barony of Seagirt (Victoria).
