Heavy List & Rapier Tournaments
One Rose team will challenge another, and the two teams’ heavy fighters and the two teams’ rapier fighters will compete against each other.  When all bouts are fought, each team will seek another team to fight.
The tournament(s) will be fought Bedford style.  Each bout will be best of three.  Heavy list and rapier fighters will share the same list and bouts will go on simultaneously.  There should be room enough for at least two bouts to happen at the same time. 
Archery Tournament
The archery range will be indoors, in the same huge warehouse building everything else will be.  Tournament details are TBD.
Arts & Sciences Competition
Each participant should bring one item that they created.  Items can be documentable, approximations, learning experiences, or clever ways of hiding modern items.  Participants can sit with their items if they wish, but they are not required to.  Documentation is not required.  If you feel your item needs an explanation, then keep it to no more than a single sheet of paper.
Judging will be Populace Choice.  Everyone is encouraged to judge – there will be a sign in sheet and each person will be given 3 beads.  Judges will vote by picking the three items that they like the best and putting the beads in the cups by the items.  Each bead is a point, and the item with the most points wins.  When they sign in, each person will be asked if they are on a Rose’s team.  Team members will win additional points for their team by judging the A&S.
