Thursday we will welcome our guests and assist, construct and create a martial academic environment where we will re-learn unit tactics and build upon the talent of our populace.  This day is dedicated to conducting authorizations, repairing equipment and ensuring the encampment that we regularly displayed at wars like Pennsic and Gulf Wars is up to standard.  

 Friday is Training day. We kick off the day at 9:00. Armored training will begin on the field. Movement, Contact, Drills and formations will be discussed and trained on. Many who day trip may need to arrive early if they require authorizations. The training will run until noon. There will be a 3 hour break from 12 until 3 where we will resume training in specialized areas like Spear work and Triads picking up at 3:30. We end the day with 10 man scrimmages which directly support Saint Aidens 10 Warrior melee competition at Pennsic. Combat Archery Training will run their courses of rapid fire drills and refine their techniques. There will be a 3 hour break from 12 until 3 where we will resume training and conduct a training drill called CoG’s Alley.

Friday evening sides will be pre-determined to offer units who fight together to remain together. Sides will be evenly divided prior to the start of Melee activities.
