For me it was a jackpot too.The white knight breaks his lance, the jagged pieces scattering all over!
Had a fabulous time during the event. A big thank you to the jousting knights: (Ridders te Paard) and “De Ridders van de IJssel”.

The tournament and the Medieval event organized by “De Ridders van de IJssel” in Kampen the Netherlands 2011.

Till next year!
