This event will help provide funds directly to a community organisation helping youth in our community, and we would ask anybody interested in watching or participating medieval swordplay to encourage us by coming out, cheering us on, donating to support your favourite fighter, and getting some delicious BBQ food available on site, proceeeds of which will also benefit the YSB.

Prospective fighters will be sent invitations, and they may register through the website. Pledges can be donated either through the fighters themselves or by visiting the website and supporting a fighter or simply making a donation.
