Heavy Championship :

It's going to be a six round multi weapons tourney. Each round will be a single,weapon style...Single,Sword, Sword and Shield, Mass Weapon and Shield, Great Weapon, Pole Weapon and Two Weapons. 

We'll fight it using what is known as Hocktide Rules. Fights will end with traditional sca death or if two strikes land on a limb. For each limb strike, the fight will pause and reset, acknowledging the blow.

Points will be awarded as follows...1 point for entering, 1 point for a reasonably period kit as judged by TEs, 1 point for a Heraldic Surcoat or Painted Shield, 1 point for a voice herald or heraldic banner and 6 points from fighting.

Archery Championship:

A Royal Round, whatever the SSAC shoot for the month of August is going to be, an Apples and Oranges Shoot (this is something I made up and am still working on finalizing. Basically a target with apples and oranges, points for hitting apples and negative points for hitting oranges, with a few fun things thrown in.)  Finals would be a wand shoot. Starting at a distance to be determined, finalists will get to shoot 5 arrows. After retrieving we will move up a few steps and repeat.  First to hit their wand 4 times will be the winner and new champion.


There will be mounted gaming and a "Noblesse Oblige" challenge course competition, as well has mounted archery, foam jousting, and mounted archery (assuming we have riders authorized for these activities present.)

This is always a fun event and this year should be no exception.

Over night boarding is available, but limited, so I will need to know in advance who intends to bring horses with the intent of having them stay over night on site.

Contact me via private message here on Facebook or via email to let me know you are bringing horses or if you have any questions.

Long and Short Rapier Activities for 2017


This years Rapier activities will start with the settling of a challenge between Msr. Christian and Lord Samwell Langdon to determine who has a better grasp of command in Melee tactics.  This will be a 6 on 6 melee with the details worked out by the two team captains.


After the initial melee we will then just use the time we have left for additional melee scenarios as participants desire for a fun afternoon of melee activities.


Any garter challenges that happen will be held at this time.

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
