From The Page (June, 2007):

The Company of The Martillodores once again sends word to all challengers to come meet us and to do combat using the ideals of Chivalry, Skill and Camaraderie! All entrants who would come to the field of honor will prepare themselves to show their best display of the Arte of Defense (Rapier) and the skill of the Target Archer. The theme of the event is "Love, considering the noble virtue*' and we also invite all who would gather to witness this event to be welcome as guests in our shaded galleries for their viewing pleasure, the better to see all of the martial arts for the day. The rapier tournament will be conducted in the style of a Pas d'Armes and the target archery field will be open to all qualified archers and will pit you against The Martillodores in a modified royal round shoot.

The Company also invites you to sup with us on Saturday evening with a 3 course feast by house Regola della Donna! (Yes, its Anna Sera's awesome cooking!) *Please go to (website address omitted) for Directions, important event specific information, feast information and rules for the tournament* or contact the autocrat
