    I have plans on Saturday, April 25 ... I'm attending a wedding on Baja as part of the 'Dragon Guard'. Then we have another Market/Bazaar. Would someone please take screenshots of the tournament? I'll try to be there as soon as I can following the bazaar.
    Thanks!

    Correct me if I'm wrong but this is 10:00 AM Sat Morning? I'm not usually up that early on Sat, or barely at best but I'll try.

    You can get to the PvP House/Arena by using the vortex in front of the Counselor Hall, Britain, Felucca. There are runes to the Fel Counselor Hall placed at Fel Yew Gate, Fel Despise Docks Entrance, Fel Brit Bank, and Tram Counselor Hall.​

    In addition to the healers, a stablemaster has been added to the area outside the PvP house for convenience in stabling pets.​

    While talking with EM Faine Morgan this evening she mentioned that we should be getting chickens bonded and trained ... I suspect a chicken fight is in the near future!​
