The Christmas Tourney: As is tradition, the entry fee will be 5 canned goods for the food pantry. We will also be accepting winter coats for Children in Need. 1 Coat = 5 Cans. The tournament will begin with fighters being sorted into even pools , exact numbers of fighters and pools will depend on the number of entrants . Double kills count as a loss for each fighter during the pool section. If time allows we will do two rounds of Pools. The top six fighters from the final pools will emerge into our double elimination bracket tourney. The finals will be fought best of three bouts. First round with Six Foot Spear. Second round with Great/Mass weapon. Third round with fighters choice.
The Largesse Tourney: Following the end of the Christmas tourney, a special tournament will be held. The 16 combatants who donated the most charitable goods at the list tables will be invited to take part in our Largesse Tourney. This will be a bracketed single elimination tournament fought with Sword and Buckler. To the victor will go a prize worthy of their Largesse and their skill at arms.
