Event details

Hear ye!  Hear ye!  As the plague wanes, the First Baronial Champions of Buckland Cross, Sir Tiberius Nautius Maximus (heavy weapons) and Morwill MacShane (Fencing), wish to designate their successors. 

Therefore they and the Baron and Baroness of Buckland Cross, Aurddeilen-ap-Robet and Sigridh Bengstdotter, call on the interested fighters and fencers of the kingdom to gather on Oct.  2, 2021 to battle it out for the honor of representing our fair Barony.

For the heavy fighters, it will be a round-robin tournament, with the two best combatants fighting in the final in a best of 5 fight (Sword and shield, polearm, greatsword, two-weapon, best form).

The fencers can contact our current champion, Morwill MacShane, for details.
