Blood and Axes the Third Event date: June 29th, 2019 - June 30th, 2019
Hosted by Canton of Northpass - Carmel, NY

Event details
Two years ago, Northpass decided that we should run my thoughts of a one-off martial focused event.  The (then) Seneschal insisted we find a use for the Veterans Memorial Park and this would be a good use of said site.  I (Wilhelm) decided that it would be best to focus on thrown weapons (due to the dearth of events that focus on that glorious activity) and so Blood and Axes was born!  Last year`s second edition of the event was fun but more was demanded by all and as such a third helping will be had. 

So, as it is the time where the harvest will be planted and Kings often go to war, we invite one and all, great and small, young and not young to hone their skills of martial activity.  We should be ready to defend our lands and the righteous honor of the Crown of our Eastern Realm!  I exhort you to come to compete and enjoy all things of valor!

We have been preparing a set of activities that will prepare all the willing for living off the land in our honorable quests for glory.  We also are looking to expand the possibilities of the Thrown Weapons tournament quite a bit.

So, come test your might and art of combat against all as we offer a field of chances to throw axes (and knives and javelins) shoot your bows, fence, fight...  We hope to celebrate our grand forests as well this year...  (I hope all this tempts you well!)
