Girl Scout Horse Lovers and Wanna Be Princesses

Calling all volunteers

to the Tournament of the Phoenix

A unique opportunity-

Like the Olympics, the tournament brings participants from all over the world together in teamwork and cooperation, and fosters international good will.

It is one of a kind opportunity for kids to participate in an event on both a local and international scale.

Adults, seniors, members of the military – anyone with a few hours to spare- can assist in a non-commercial, locally run event that is good for the community, local businesses and families.

Please help us bring this unique and important event to Poway!

The knights need YOU!

On October 26, 27 & 28 2012 the Poway Rodeo Grounds will be transformed into a scene from ‘A Knight’s Tale’ as armoured knights from the US, England, Canada and France compete to win the prestigious Phoenix prize.

In addition to world class international competition for adults, the event is one of the only G rated medieval themed events in Southern California. Games, crafts, music, storytelling and archery, we have loads of creative, engaging activities especially for kids and families.

The event is produced by a small Ramona family business. To maintain control over the content and keep it family friendly, we do not accept sponsorships from large corporations. The event depends on grassroots support from the community to keep it -for- the community. This is a huge event with many facets, and we can’t do it without you!

How you can help

Pre-event prep- folding T shirts, stuffing envelopes, tagging merchandise, distributing flyers, etc. There are loads of jobs which are great for anyone who doesn’t want to work the weekend of the event, but still wants to help.
