The Forty-Second Year

First Sword Tourney -- Esfenn

July 14, 2007 (AS XLII)

Los Cerritos Community Park,
Fremont, CA

From The Page (July, 2007):

The crops are in the fields, the herds in their summer grazing and the long halls are filled with the laughter of children; the time has come to once again gather the hickory staves and the ground cloth and come together to select the next First Sword of Esfenn. As in the past, there will be melees, melees and more melees, interspersed with one-on-one combats to determine the First Sword - consisting of a Holmgang round, a Dane axe round, a single sword at the barrier round and sword and shield round, with a final round for the winners of the separate fighting styles for the First Sword. There will be individual prizes to the winner of each fighting style. There will also be prize melees through out the day. Armor inspection at 10:30 and fighting starts at 11. There will be games for the children, an A&S display, and a potluck style sideboard for all. Please bring a dish to share.

Site Information: Los Cerritos Commimity Park in Fremont (corner of Alder and Nicolet). Site opens at 9 and closes at dusk. No site fee, but donations will gladly be accepted.

Autocrat: Baccus Kaloethes (contact info omitted).
