For ARCHERY, we will have a fabulous fun shoot, with both competition and general shooting, as well as the Barony Beyond the Mountain Baronial Archery Tournament.  We invite the archers of BBM to come out and take part in a challenging but fun shoot for the honor of representing your Barony.

Fencing for the day will include the Barony Beyond the Mountain Baronial Rapier Championship.  All are welcome in the regular tournament and we can't wait to see fencers from all over BBM coming to fight to become our next Baronial Champion!  Pennsic is coming up shortly and this is the only way to fight in the Known World Baronial Fencing Tournament.  Come represent BBM and show the Known World what kind of fencers BBM has!

If your game is thrown weapons, it will be a day of Thrown Weapons instruction, guidance and if there is enough interest, competition.  Newer people will have the opportunity to work with experienced throwers on techniques.  MiT's will have the opportunity to work with experienced marshals and get some valuable range time.  Royal Rounds will be available for anyone who wishes to throw them. 

We have a wonderful day planned for you with many tournaments, classes, and other fun things to do.
