Jon the Jouster

I met Jon and Ursula at the Jousting and Medieval Tournament at Arundel Castle on July 22 whilst in England for a study abroad course.  We traveled to Arundel to attend the jousting and Medieval festival, as well as to tour the castle.  The Duke and Duchess of Suffolk live at the castle. You can see the English Channel from the top of the Keep of the castle. I would also suggest visiting the gardens — simply beautiful.

The jousting event was very interesting and great fun.  You can view the video below to hear an informal interview with Jon and me about jousting rules, Medieval jousting gear, and Twin Peaks‘ owls and why they inspired Jon to create his shield around the nocturnal bird.
