Event details
Hail and well met!  Once again, Duke Balfar and the Barony of Dragonship Haven welcome the great fighters of the East Kingdom to test their mettle in our annual multi-marshallate competition.

****** This year we have an exciting NEW site location, which is larger than in past years.  Also more parking will be available.  ******

Teams of three heavy fighters, fencers, archers and thrown weapons.  There will be prizes for the best in each martial category.

The usual rules apply to the three person teams in all areas.  There may be no more than one Knight per rattan team or High Order of Merit on any other martial team(Sag.,OGR).

For fencing there will be buildings to fight for control over, and streets to fight in.  The fencing at this event will be schlager ONLY.  We are hopeing this can be a nice warm up for the town battle this summer. 

As in the past, Archery will have fun novalty shoots. 

Youth fighters, we would not forget our future warriors.  A fun day is planned for you as well!

As always, a spectacular running dayboard will be provided by Jaji.  Please direct all dietary concerns to the Kitchener prior to the day of the event.
