Pas d'Armes

Torchlight Cut and Thrust fights. This will take place Friday night.

Geas Competition

In Celtic Myth and Legends the greatest of heroes were all but undefeatable.
In many stories they could only be defeated by knowing what Geas, or hidden weakness,
could be used on them, eventually causing their defeat.
The Celtic Geas tournament re-enacts these conditions on the field.
There will be five rounds, where the combatants will spin each round for their Geas.
Only if your opponent hits your weak point can you be defeated on the field.
All other shots or hits do not count as a kill shot.
The weapon selection will also change each round.
Come see if you are as strong as Cu Chulainn, Fionn Mac Cumhaill, or Oision.
