|The Vikings are coming to Blak Rose! |
We are planning a day of all things Viking.
Fighters will be taking part in a variation of the Viking Holmgang style tournament. First blood is the name of the game in this confined space tournament. Any good hit is counted as a kill with each fighter getting 3 kills per round. The tournament will either be round robin or double elimination depending on the number of fighters. The winner of the tournement will receive 2 high table seats to the feast!
Archers, Help defend the shire from the Viking Raiders! The competition will consist of a woods walk ending with a stockade defense. The archery trail is handicapped and wheelchair accessible.
