Richard Garriott Jousts at Lysts on the Lake 2011

There was a surprise last minute entrant onto the jousting field on the final day of "Lysts on the Lake 2011". Although the jouster was originally introduced as Sir Thomas Collville (the name comes from "A Knight's Tale"), it turned out to be none other than the "Lysts on the Lake's" Royal Sponsor, Richard Garriott.
