Dust off your weapons and armor and fight and fence to your hearts content, then we will feed you, and let you dance until you are too tired to stand. What more could you ask for! We are inviting everyone, fencers, fighters, dancers, musicians, bards, comedians, storytellers, EVERYONE to come play!
If things go well and everyone shows up for the fencing tournament on time we will try to fit in a couple of fencing melees before we yield the floor to the heavy fighters.
John the Pell has promised a tournament format that will be well worth the trip! There will be games and activities for children. We will also be having a silent auction to go toward our loaner gear equipment.
we are still working out the details, but there will be plenty of food for all, and we ask musicians to entertain during the feast. Dancing, YES DANCING! We have live musicians, we have space to dance, we have people who are not afraid to teach dance.
