|Hosted by Barony of Settmour Swamp - Livingston, NJ||Event Last Modified: February 10th, 2005|
|"L'homme, L'homme, L'homme arme|
L'homme arme doibt on doubter.
On a fait partout crier
Que chascun se viegne armer
D'un haubregon defer."
To celebrate the coming of Spring to our fair lands, the Baron and Baroness of Settmour Swamp have declared that there shall be a great tourney to celebrate the Arts Martial in all of their diverse forms. Fighters, fencers and archers are all invited to come and display their skills upon the field. There will be a tourney for youth fighters as well, and a thrown weapons competition. So polish your swords, shake the dust of winter off your armor, and come show your prowess!
NOTE: All combattants must troll in before they can sign up for any lists. There will be an express check-in available on the field for combattants who pre-register. Reserve ahead and avoid the morning lines at troll.
For those who practice the gentler arts, there will be a traditional A&S competition and display. Items relating to the event's martial theme are encouraged, but not required. There will also be a "practical" A&S competition for items actually used in any form of SCA combat (for example: armor, a buckler, arrows, etc.). Entries in the second competition will be judged for artistic merit, compliance with the relevant rules and usefulness -- so you can (and should) be wearing or using your entry!
Other diverse and sundry activities will be available during the day, including shopping at the merchants and auditions for the production of MacBeth to be mounted at Pennsic.
A combattant-friendly dayboard will be provided both on the field and in the hall. Refreshments also will be available in the main hall just prior to Baronial Court. For the evening, Lady Berelinde Cynewulfdohter will be preparing a splendid Anglo-Saxon feast.
