St. Paddy's Day Bloodbath - March 12th, 2016
Banners of the North, weep! You shame your noble King with your winterís lethargy! It is time to seize your swords and grasp your shields. Time to check your kit, increase your might, work out your kinks, and share in the joy that comes only with the bonds of brotherhood forged during war. Arise and shake off the rust of these past frigid months. Sound the battle horn and muster again. Let all the banners of the north fly and fan our hearts to acts worthy of song!
Join your fellow Atlantians at the Barony of Ponte Alto's Annual St. Paddy's Day Bloodbath where the fighting is fierce and the lunch is free. We present a day that will be sure to satisfy even the most bloodthirsty fighter. This event is a fighterís dream, featuring our usual bearpit tourney and as many pickups as you can stomach. Remember, this is for both light and heavy fighters, and this year we will be adding Heavy Youth Combat to the schedule.
There will be a Bardic bear pit taking place between 1-3pm. No other A&S activities are scheduled, but all are encouraged to bring projects to work on.
Please note: This is traditionally a *cold* event, so please dress appropriately.
