INVITATION: Chateau de Camville, residing in the lovely lands of the Shire of Mountain's Gate (El Dorado County California), is hosting its second Combative Arts Retreat on NOVEMBER 2-4, 2007. The focus of the weekend will be to improve the skill sets of the attendees. Each day will begin with fighting classes in the first part of the day and armored drills/focused sparring in the latter part of the day. Sunday we will conclude with a mock-tournament. Please note that this is not a "beginner class" and all attendees should have a basic grasp of the foundational skills used in armored combat. Attendees should have a complete suit of armor and their own weapons. For the newer fighter (still needs to have armor/weapons mind you-grin) a Friday Basics Review Class will be offered. Various guest instructors will also be on hand. If you missed the first Combative Arts Retreat in February don't miss this one!

On July 14th Tarnmist will be holding its annual Protectorate Tourney. This year we will also be holding the Captain Of The Guard Tourney at the same event. For the first time in the history of the Barony Captain of the Guard will we vied for with rapiers, and in order to lure some rapier fighters down here I am providing a prize for the incoming Captain of the Guard. As the Captain of the Guard will be the commander of The Baroness's Personal Guard and will hold a position of command in the Army of Tarnmist he or she will require a token not only of the Captain's authority but a symbol of what happens to the unruly Tarnmist fighter who does not follow orders.
