For those more martially inclined, there will be fencing and fighting also available (fighters, in order to use the indoor space, we need to protect the gymnasium floor- please be prepared). And, if that was not enough to fill your day- there will always be merchants, dayboard, youth activities and, most important, socializing with friends.
