http://youthfighters.eastkingdom.org/Documents/CreatingBasicPEXSwords.pdf

Jehan’s Fighting and Fencing at the Fort: April 18, 2015

Barony of Endewearde

Saturday, April 18, 2015
10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Fort Knox Historic State Park
Prospect, Maine

Heraldic_RoseOnce again the Barony of Endewearde offers the chance to fight and fence within a granite fort – more atmospheric than a school gymnasium. Jehan’s Fighting and Fencing at the Fort will feature youth combat, youth rapier, adult rapier and armored combat tournaments, with some melees afterwards for the adults (think stair pit).

For those not martially inclined, there will be a tavern run by Lord Neville Sudlow with a warm fire, good company and a chance to purchase hot food and beverages from the canton of Basingestoches. You are also welcome to bring your own food, as there will be no day board. Please bring your feast gear and a chair for the day (you will want a chair for baronial court). Even if the weather gods do not smile on us, we will still be able to hold our activities, so don’t let the weather stop you from enjoying this event with us!

Event Fees

Site Fee: Because we are not providing a dayboard, our fees are reduced: $5 for adult members (adult non-members must pay $10), $2 for children and youth 5-17, no charge for those under 5. No reservations required or accepted.
