You are most happily invited to share a day of glory and renown with us as we choose our new First Sword! This year the First Sword tournament shall be comprised of a 'Two on One' tournament, with a variety of popular prize melees interspersed between the rounds. The tournament portion shall be a third of the fighters called across in order of fighting precedence, and the remaining fighters shall make teams of two of their own devising. The tourney list shall tlien be run as usual, with each match being one fighter against a team of two. The position of First Sword shall be the winner of the list, with the members of a team fighting for the honor amongst themselves if their team is victorious in the list.

Site Information: There will be a potluck feast after the tournament. The Shire will be providing the coals, BBQ, and protein! Please bring a side dish to share. There is no site fee but donations are gladly accepted! Site opens at 9 am and the tournament starts promptly at 11 am. This is a public park site, so pets are allowed on leashes.
