Baronial Champion Tournaments

At this Sunday’s rapier/melee practice, we will be choosing our Baronial martial champions. Our current rapier champion (Master Wistric) will hold the field against all comers to determine his successor. Those who wish to vie to become our heavy champion will issue and receive challenges from those who wish to test them. We will choose the new champion based on the prowess and chivalry displayed in those combats.

3/16 Meeting Venue Change

Since many people are gone for Gulf Wars and there is another meeting at the Rec Center that may make parking even more difficult than usual, this week’s meeting (3/16/16) will be at Lorenzo and Adela’s house. Bring some food to share (the grill will be available if you want to bring meats) and come hang out.

Address: 3911 Rivaridge Ct., Marietta, GA 30062
