Itís looking to be a great Tournament this year Vanidel, with many knights seen at the Winterhaven Joust joining some new faces from across the world. The knights have been practicing the last few days, but are taking their rest break before the Opening Ceremonies tomorrow.

With the knights off the field we should be able to get a look at the jousting grounds and maybe a few behind the scenes interviews with the event staff. First though lets take a look at the Marketon Jousting Grounds, known locally as the Marketon Tilt.

As you can see the Tilt is a purposely built competition ground. With jousting becoming more and more popular itís made sense to build these grounds here in Marketon, the neutral crossroads of Pavelonia and Sweetwater.

Weíre out here at the tilting wall Sir Edward, can you take us through the basics of a match?

Sure thing Vanidel, itís a pretty straight forward affair. Each knight will hold his shield in his left hand, that being closest to the wall and the opponent as they pass left shoulders. He will hold his lance across the back of his horseís neck with the goal of striking the opponent with the tip of the lance.

From the point where we are standing the knight would be riding directly towards us on this side of the tilt wall from the far end. His opponent would be starting off from just to our right and they would meet somewhere close to the center This should be close to directly in front of where we will be sitting on the grandstand side, while the Marshall of the Lists who will be acting as judge will be directly opposite us on the judging stand.
