I am very excited to share this combat archery, and siege event! Come join the missile flinging fun!

Friday and Saturday night, for those on site, we will be hosting a ‘laid back’ bardics featuring stories, tall or true, about yours, or others exploits with missile weapons!

The morning will bring classes, inspections and authorizations. So make sure you brush up on the rules, you have loads of time!

There will also be a Missile Weapon Tourney! We will be hosting at least the ‘Speed Round’ variant with multiple weapon types.

Rough Schedule:
10:00 a.m. Siege 101/CA 101
10:00 a.m. Battlefield strategy class (Sir Timothy)
11:00 a.m. Authorizations (siege, CA, armored)
Noon: Armored Tourney(s), target competitions (siege. CA)
2:00 p.m. All CA/Siege melee
3:00 p.m. Full melee (CA, Siege, armored)
4:00 p.m. Armoring class (Arailt); Combat archery 13th & 14th Century history (Rudolf)  Cancelled

 

Now this is primarily Combat Missile event, but we do ask that our rattan friends show up. We can use your help in authorizing, inspections and participation in exercises! Treat this event as a missile-centric ‘War Practice’ to focus on teamwork as well as coordinate with our melee friends so we work more efficiently with our army!

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the activities!

One thought on “Spring Fling III is upon us!”

  1. It looks like the armoring class will not be happening, but there is still plenty of other activities!

We await your missive...
