Dallas: Resistance Is Feudal

Each year, there is always that person who is hard to buy a gift. I have found that buying an experience is great for anyone versus something they won’t remember next year. My family just experienced Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament for the first time. I’d highly recommend it for children 5 years and older and for those who aren’t too “proper.” ūüėČ

Medieval Times has recently offered a NEW show that has taken 2 years to make with many new elements and keeps some traditions. The live show will features two-and four-legged performers with a utensil-free meal serviced in a castle-inspired arena.

The new live production presents live jousting, swordplay, horsemanship and falconry. You are encouraged to cheer for one of six ‚ÄúKnights of the Realm‚ÄĚ named after historic regions of medieval Spain. With authentic weaponry and enhanced armor, the new production presents non-stop action tied to the tempo of the music. There‚Äôs a general theme of ‚Äúgood versus evil‚ÄĚ throughout the show.

Guests will even enjoy an upgraded menu for the utensil free meal during the new show.  The menu includes:

Tomato Bisque
Focaccia Bread with Olive Oil and Seasoning
Oven Roasted Chicken
Larger BBQ Spare Rib
Herb-Basted Potato Split into Two Quarters
Spiced Carrot
Braided Apple Strudel
Larger Beverage Servings and Coffee 

Guests can purchase tickets at the door or online at www.medievaltimes.com.

FCA Coaches Appreciation & Leadership Dinner

Come enjoy the third annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Coaches Appreciation and Leadership Dinner on Monday, November 14 from 6:30 PM Р9 PM at Prestonwood Church in Plano. It will feature speaker Jon Kitna and musical guest Brent Lamb.

Kitna is known for being outspoken about his faith. He has said that “When you don‚Äôt have a lot of success, as a Christian you really start to learn God‚Äôs character and how much He really loves you. And then you become grounded and rooted. Then when we have the success that I think God is bringing our way, we already have a solid foundation.‚ÄĚ

This evening was created as a way to say thank all coaches in the Dallas area who volunteer valuable time to partner with FCA through our huddle ministry and various student-oriented events throughout the year. Awards will be presented to honor coaches in the community who have shown outstanding service and leadership.
