Come join us for the final of our Summer Twilight Tournament Series.
This Summer’s Twilight Tournaments are centred around important Saints. Rounding out the fourth and final summer twilight event for AS51-52 we will be honouring no other than the Patron Saint of our College, Saint Monica ( c.331 – c.387).
For those that may not be familiar with our College, we were founded here at Monash university in 1988, so at this event we will also be celebrating our 30th birthday.
The evening will begin with a short opening court, followed by a heavy tournament, A&S competitions and a potluck dinner.
This event is garbed and you will need to bring your own feast gear, however if you are lacking in either there will be hospit (loaner garb and feast kits) on site for those that require it.
It seems only fitting that this event be held here on the grounds on the College of Saint Monica, yet it must be noted that parking at Monash is almost constantly evolving. A map of the site and nearby parking will be uploaded presently. For those coming by public transport, we are practically a hop, skip and jump from the university bus terminal.
