-=][ Day Two Itinerary ][=-
In preparation of the main event of the day, all are invited to meet outside the jousting arena in warm clothes fit for being in the snow, and drinks will be shared, as a toast to the newlyweds.
The event of the second day is focused primarily on a 'Siege', where all members are split into two groups - Those on the side of the bride, Katherine, and those on the side of the groom, Asher. Within the jousting arena will be a newly constructed 'castle', to be defended by the bride and her group against those of the groom. No weaponry will be permitted and whilst some harm may be expected this is for fun and excessive violence will not be tolerated. There should be plenty of snow to use, however. The game will continue for about an hour, unless the bride is 'captured' before the time has passed.
To conclude the event, all are welcome to find warmth in the docks tavern, to linger as long as desired.
