Grab two or four of your favorite friends to watch your back, and join us at Camp Graham Ball for this melee event extraordinaire!
Be on site by 10 AM to join the morning maneuvers as we storm the castle and take the bridge. After a sideboard lunch, take to the field once more for field melees and a town battle. Three Kings and Bordermarch Melees are around the corner... under the tutelage of some of the top Knights and Centurions in the biz, brush up on your commands and communication, your cooperation and coordination, and even your comradeship while you're at it! Wind up the night with a hearty game of Apocalypto-ball-- if that doesn't cinch it, what will?
Site fee is $10 for adults, $5 for those 13-17, and free for those 12 and under. This includes a sideboard lunch and dinner. There is a $3 non-membership fee, and a $30 family cap.
There will be melee fun designed to include archers, heavy, and light fighters. Don't fight? Classes are being offered for your education, entertainment, and enlightenment, including Waterbearing 101, Camp Cookery, and Silk Banner Painting.
