Brace your selves for a combat extravaganza of heavy combat and fencing that will blow your mind. Bring your sword and armor for a day of teaching and learning. Classes will be hands on and catered to the students in attendance. Those without armor, fear not: there will be a place for hands-on help building armor, hopefully with enough time to finish before Sunday's regional fight practice. There will also be an armor garage sale, so bring the extra armor you have just lying around, slap a price tag on it and see if you can get someone else to take it home!
