St. Paddy's Day Bloodbath - March 14th, 2020
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 fighter's dream, featuring our usual bearpit tourney and as many pickups as you can stomach. Remember, this is for both light and heavy fighters. If there is interest, AND we can staff Youth Marshals, there will be Youth Fighting as well.
Please note: This is traditionally a *cold* event, so please dress appropriately.
A&S: Choosing the Baronial Champion for A&S and Bardic. More information to come.
Fighting: Heavy / Rapier / possibly youth fighting: We will be choosing the Baronial Champions for Heavy and Rapier
