[ANS] Bjornsborg Academy of Defense

Come join the Barony of Bjornsborg as it hosts a tournament of the four leading schools of the Art of the Rapier.

The Masters of England, Germany, Italy and Spain will test your weapons skill to determine your worthiness as a Provost in the Bjornsborg Academy of Defense. The tournament will have 5 parts, so everyone will get more than enough fighting time. Armor inspection will start at 8 am with Field roll call starting at 9:30am.

Be witness to the return of Hunkerrapier!!!

Rounds are as follows:
• In field challenges, Masters of each country will set up pairs within their field.
• During the Field vs. Field challenges, Masters will set up matches between their country and another. (Gulf War champion tourney style)
• Masters Challenge
• Training Scenarios are fun little ways of testing your ability of handling a rapier.
• The Grand Melee will pit the newly chosen Provosts against the rest of the field.

The Ansteorran Longship Company will be serving lunch on Saturday for a minimum $5 donation.

Stay for our traditional Evening Pot Luck dinner. Bring something you enjoy and can share with all.
