Yesterday, about 50 armoured fighters and almost as many others converged upon Jefferson, WI for It's Only a Flesh Wound. A new event idea for our area. A day of tournaments with impressive prizes donated for each one. Great Axe (won by THL Corydon Rathbone), Florentine (won by Lord Damiano Cioli del Castello di Linari), Great Sword (won by THL Evan Jons), Weapon and Shield (won by Lord Torsten Lichtenstein), Atlantian Speed Tourny for the unbelts (won by THL Roisin ingen Aillel), Unbelted Champions vs the Chivalry, Pole Arm (won by THL Evan Jons), Mixed Weapons (won by HG Sir Siegfried von Kulmbach, and a 3 person Melee only 1 member of the Chivalry per team. In addition to the fighter (won by "Ton of Fun--Sir Gunther Kegslayer, THL Evan Jons, and THL Stephen DuBois). In addition to more fighting than most fighters could shake a stick at, there was an A&S Competition with Lady Ailleanne ingen Faelin taking both the populace bead count and Baroness Ethni's Choice prizes; Lady Fiona Kittrege who took the performance category prize and Princess' Choice; and Lord Reinholdt von Trollenhagen taking Prince's Choice.
