I _think_ there might have been one that pitted Their Majesties against
Their Highnesses (probably over something like who could control the
tolls on the Missouri River), the old geezers vs the young bucks....
It's never been kingdom vs kingdom, as noted. It's never been household
vs household, since while we have households here they've never had any
real political pull as has happened in other kingdoms (it's never "which
household do you belong to?" but more "so, who's your peer?").
Informal as in it's more of a week-long get-together of a bunch of
friends who happen to do medieval history than it is a formalized
event (like, oh, Coronation or Crown Tourney) which has certain
things that have to happen by people who have to show up to do them.
You show up, you have fun, you take classes, you shop, you do a massive
amount of relaxing, you swim, you fight, you sing....
