Barony of Mons Tonitrus displays martial skill in Sierra Vista

"Saturday was a day for using nonlethal weaponry — great and broad swords and maces, none sharp or heavy enough to do bodily harm. But in the right hands, a well-delivered, telling and glancing blow could be struck, as some of the contestants learned," writes reporter Bill Hess of the Sierra Vista Herald/Review of the fighters of the Barony of Mons Tonitrus.

Hess reported on the group's recent event and on its celebration of its 22nd anniversary as an SCA chapter. The Barony of Mons Tonitrus is located in the Kingdom of Atenveldt, in the modern state of Arizona.
