The tides of time move forward and
winter finally breaks its hold upon us.
All around us the world shakes off the
cold yoke of the winter season and we
come alive once again. What signals
best the coming of the new year is new
life and on May 16 we celebrate and
welcome those who have prepared in the
dark and cold of winter to display their
newfound skills in the light of spring.
Come test your mettle against your peers
in our annual Novice and Unbelt
Martial Activities: The Armored Combat activities will consist of a Novice Tournament, an Unbelted Tournament and a Tournament of Chivalry. The format for the Novice and Unbelted tournaments to be determined by the number of entries. A Novice is defined as an Armored Combatant who's INITIAL Authorization is less than two years from the date of the Tournament. Anyone who's Initial Authorization longer than 2 years, but no more than 30 months may request special dispensation of the AC MiC to be allowed into the Novice Tournament. No Promises. Following the Novice and Unbelted tournaments, the Chivalry in attendance will be invited to take the field and receive challenges from the unbelts and/or request opportunities for one on one training.
