Join us in Charlotte, NC for a 3 day event with 9 tournaments, plus workshops, lectures, and a masquerade ball with renaissance dancing! We will have cutting tournaments with Longsword and Sidesword. Sparring tournaments with Longsword, Sidesword, Spear, and Dagger. Our Longsword, Sidesword and Dagger tournaments will be split into Rose Division (fighters under 5’9″ tall) and Crown Division (fighters 5’9″ and above).
Daggers are allowed as a companion weapon in the Longsword tournament.
“Sideswords” may be any form of single-handed sword with a blade length less than or equal to 38” (e.g., rapiers, sabers, messers, and arming swords are all acceptable in addition to “true” sideswords). Daggers, Cloaks, Bucklers, and Targas are allowed as companion weapons in the Sidesword tournamnet.
Loaner sharps will be available for both cutting tournaments. You are also welcome to bring your own sharp.
