new friends to join Us for Wealdsmere’s FREE Sergeants Trials
and Newcomers Event!  

 Not only
will candidates be trying their hand at the Sergeantry Trials but
as well the Sergeants of Wealdsmere have a weekend filled with fun
and merriment.  It’s destined to be hot in the last
weekend in July but don’t let that scare you away because we
have taken that into account…

 Tournaments for Heavy, Rapier, YAC and
Combat Archery (not regular archery, come prepared to shoot a few
combat arrows at water balloons!) in the cool hours of the morning
and then lots of opportunities to cool down with Nap time, A &
S, games and even a Henry the 8th eating contest followed by a
Rukus Bardic and dessert social.  Wealdsmere will also host a
Newcomers Tour class with resources galore.  And what is even
better than all of this?  ITS A FREE EVENT!

 Why?  Because it’s FREE!
