Allow me to add my voice to this praise. Vivat to all who
autocratted, marshalled, and cooked! This was my very first tournament to
fight in, (and after only about a month or so of training I can tell you I
was rather nervous) and it was a *wonderful* way to start.

I heartily agree with Tymo. I really enjoyed the melee tourney
because I had far more opportunity to remain alive and learn from the
honored knights and squires present than I would have in just a simple one
on one tournament, in which my career at this point would have consisted
of "Lay on!" <THWACK>. The melee style was great fun (another vivat to my
teacher Lord Mordraut) and I would love it if more events did this.
