This weekend: Kingdom Fighting Collegium and Southern War Practice!

Greetings, populace of Mons! This weekend brings two great fighting events for our martial members in the form of the Kingdom Fighting Collegium and the Southern War Practice. The locations are as follows (as per the Barony of Tyr Ysgithr):

“The steward for Kingdom Fighting Collegium was onsite today and verified that our normal reserved area (near the library) at Himmel Park is untouched by construction and ready for this awesome and informative event!

Southern War Practice, as stated in the event article, will be at Lincoln Park due to the soccer fields at Himmel Park undergoing repairs on the irrigation systems. Mistress Blossom has graciously posted maps of the site and the SCA directional signs will be up to point you in the right direction. This is a great site with tons of room to help us get ready to send the Outlands packing at Estrella this year!

Can’t wait to see everyone Saturday morning at our usual Himmel Park spot for classes, fighting, and an all-around educational day!”


If you are attending or interested in attending, here is the link for the Kingdom Fighting Collegium Facebook event. Don’t have Facebook? Here’s the information from the Kingdom of Atenveldt calendar:
