The province of Southern Shores invites all Heavy and Rapier fighters, Archers and Artisans to its Mid Summer Tourney and Demo.

Saturday Aug 4th: Mad Dog Style Charity Tourney, Archery, & Artisan Demo

Mad dog style tourney where each entrant gets 2 lives. Once those lives are expended, the fighter may buy themselves back in with the cost based in their fighting order of precedence. Viewers may also buy a fighter back in. The winner with the most victories gets to select a charity from a pre-determined list. A portion of all proceeds will be retained by Southern Shores while the remainder goes to the selected charity. Armor inspection starting at 11am fighting to commence at 12noon.

Archers will have targets available and for the Artisans there will be many an interested onlooker for you to share your love of the arts.
