Melee Madness: Central War Practice

description:
Madness comes to the Barony of Endless Hills. Melee Madness that is. We have not one, but two events at the same time and place! If your interests are towards martial pursuits, you are in for a treat! Heavy weapons activities include a singles tourney, a warlord tourney and melees, melees, melees! Combat archery is allowed at this site but target archery is not. Martially inclined, but heavy weapons are not to your liking? We will be having both a fencing tournament and a thrown weapons tournament to satisfy those inclinations. An Arts and Sciences Competition will be held as well and don't forget, for those camping Saturday night we'll have our famous Melee Madness Bardic Circle. Location:
Barony of Endless Hills (Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania)
