Fighters Fighters Fighters!!

Chivalric Fighters. Rapier Fighters. This is a great demo to fight at.
The fighting always draws a large crowd and people really enjoy
watching us.

More fighters equals more fighting. Less downtime for the crowd and
more downtime for the fighters to breath and stay hydrated. Please
come out if you can. We need all the fighters we can get.

There are always singles bouts but if we can get enough people for
melees that would be even better!

This is a great place to try out new things, be it weapons, fighting
styles, whatever. Have fun and really ham it up for the people. Fight
for the honor and glory of a child. Practice that spin move! Try and
get an Oscar for the best death. Have fun and get the crowd's

I will be there to marshal and speak with people. I also have a
pavilion that I am bringing.

As long as the rain stays away this should really be fun.

Is there a "Plan B" in case we get rained out?
