Schedule and Activities
Cut and Thrust: I plan on having a single elimination speed tournament, a bear pit, and hopefully some melees if we have the numbers. Also there will be authorizations.
Rattan: In honor of his Royal Highness the day will be filled with long swords and displays of great prowess. After morning court there will be a class on fighting with a greatsword to be taught by some of Calontir’s best. Following the class there will be time for authorizations for those without greatsword. After authorizations there will be a tournament for our men-at-arms and fyrdmen. This tournament will be fought with greatswords (no bastard swords). Upon the conclusion of the first tournament there shall be a second to be fought in the same format but open to fighters of all levels. Once all scheduled combat has concluded there should be time for plenty of pickups for those wanting more fighting.
