Authorizations - Important note! It has become obvious in the past few years that it is sometimes difficult to find marshals on Saturday morning before the war practice due to the start time. We HIGHLY encourage anyone wishing to authorize to show up Friday night at the Cookie Tourney and authorize at that time. There will be primary authorizations in the morning IF enough marshals show up early enough - past history has shown you should not count on this. If you already have your primary authorization and are looking for secondary authorizations we are likely to schedule you for Saturday afternoon following the war practice.
As usual we're looking for any marshals who don't plan on fighting to help out with some of the larger activities. Please contact Bjorn Arnaldsson if you are interested in helping.
Cookie Tourney and Authorizations - On Friday night we will once again be running the cookie tourney. Each fighter that signs up will get 10 tokens. Every time you fight you and your opponent each wager 1 or more tokens. The winner of the fight will receive the tokens. Should you run out of tokens you can purchase another 5 for $1. (All proceeds will go to the Royal Travel fund.) Audience members will receive 3 tokens at sign up and may also purchase tokens at 5 for $1. They may then make make wagers with other members on the outcome of the fights they watch.
At any point in time you may trade tokens for cookies to give you energy for your fighting and wagering. A tally will be kept of tokens you exchange because at the end of the evening the person who has traded in the most tokens will receive the grand prize! Will you earn it by buying tokens, wagering, or simply killing everyone you fight?
Rapier War Practice - On Saturday Morning the Midrealm Army Rapier Commander will be in charge of several battle scenarios.
Saturday Tournament - Details TBD
Youth Rapier - There will be youth rapier in the afternoon. Depending on turnout we're hoping to have a small tournament for each division. If we can get enough marshals we will open the list for pick up fights in the morning but that may not happen due to timing conflicts with the Rapier War Practice.
