as examples of bardic documentation. Please make sure your
documentation includes a bibliography.

even cardboard signs with their names if they wish) Children are
not expected to process with their armor on, but Parents are
required to walk with their children.

There will be a full YORK round run for the archery portion of
this event. This will not be for competition but for official


We will be running a prize tourney royal round for thrown weapons.
Just like archery these rounds are recorded and throwers get ranked
for their scores. However, if there are too many participants then
we can modify the royal round to make the tournament shorter. A
royal round in thrown weapons is 20 throws each of the axe, knife,
and spear. To shorten the tourney we would merely change it to 5
throws each.



This tournament will be
a basic round robin, hold the field. This means in essence each
fighter takes a turn holding the field against everyone else. Each
fighter ends up fighting every other fighter twice. There will also
be a cut and thrust tourney, details of which will follow later.
Come and enjoy the challenges of rapier
