Delftwood Championship Event

It's time once again to choose among the battle hardened fighters to see who the fiercest, strongest, and most honorable of them may be. As Lord Conrad MacCallum wearily steps down from his appointed place, he searches for a worthy replacement. Who will it be? Will it be the savvy and deadly Sir Yngvar, Earl Aethelmearc or the good natured Olafr Thorvardarson? Perhaps our young Ulfar of the Sword will rise to the challenge. Above all, a strong protector of the baron must be found! Fighters are encouraged to bring an SCA list legal dagger. Join us for what looks like an extremely entertaining tournament. Location:
Barony of Delftwood (Central Square, New York)
