Our 2013 tournament was held on March 2, 2013, and was a great time for all involved! We had five different schools participating in 3 events (shortsword, longsword, and dagger).

In prior years we have had events in unarmed combat, staff, single sword, and rapier. With enough volunteers and participant interest, we may will more events in future.
