Heavy Championship Holmgang: The Shire's Premier Event. This will be ran in two 30 min sections with a 10 min break between. 
Rapier Championship Holmgang: This year we are pleased to have Rapier in a Holmgang inspired Tourney! From our Rapier Marshal HL Luaithrenn the Falconer's Wife: "Rapier Championship, Hold the Field tourney (Holmgang Style)
Depending on the number of entrants, we will have one or two fights going on at a time.  Any combination of authorized weapons is permitted.  Fighters do not need to match weapons with their opponent.  The winning fighter remains on the field to face the next combatant, while the losing fighter reports the result to the lists.  Winners are not required to keep wounds from fight to fight, but may not remain in the eric for longer than 5 fights in a row.  The tournament will be won by the fighter with the most wins.  (As the event is an outdoor event, falling down when dead is at the discretion of the fighters.)"
Archery Championship: TBA Bring your bow and arrows and be prepared for a surprise! Our Archery Marshal has an amazing day planned for you! 
A&S Championship Tourney: This year we are asking participants to make an item with the theme of Rabbits! Only one page of quick documentation is needed, something that describes what the item is, how it relates to the themes and an overvire of your insperation and research. Items will be judged by our current A&S champion and a Laurel. 
YAC Championship: We will have a Holmgang style tourney for the YAC fighters, and the most Victorious Dragon division fighter will be our new Champion! 
Bardic & Thrown Weapons Champions: Will be determined at Warren War this summer!
