Sorry to intrude: a few years ago, I dimly recall that Bryn Gwlad's
"Renaissance Day in the Park" had Whack-A-Knight.  Those in armor were
one or two SCA fighters, so they had fighter authorization and waivers
on file.  The public were the ones with arms -- I think it was
children given boffer weapons.

If this sounds interesting, you might ask in Bryn Gwlad about all the
grungy details, especially whether this sort of thing is still
allowed, and if so, exactly how it was done.
