Greet the day Unbelted Fight Fans!
Only 3 tournaments to go before the series is OVER!!!
On Saturday, the 23rd of August at 2 PM under the tall cool pines of Ruidoso at the Shire of Nahrun Kabirun's Clann War event, the tenth of the Unbelted Tournaments shall be fought. The style of the tournament shall be GREATSWORD (no butt spikes). You must be authorized in this weapon style to participate. As is now the usual practice, he who Wins the list will receive a weapon of some type. He who Places will receive silver and lo, he who Shows will receive... something. Don't forget that THL Anastasiia or her representative will be on hand to give victors of the list the opportunity to get a better (or worse) prize! Points will be given for Winning, Placing and Showing and do not forget that Most Chivalrous and Best Death on the Field will also receive points. The tournament will be fought best of three, double elimination.
Please remember that to gain entrance into these Lists, a toy is to go to THL Anastasiia (or her representative) for the Toys for Tots drive or you may present to her (or her representative) at the time of the List the sum of $5.00 for her to purchase toys on your behalf. One toy or the price of one toy ($5.00 minimum) is all you need to enter although if you deem it necessary to donate more, the children will appreciate it, I am sure!
For those of you interested in the standings for the Unbelted Tournaments to date, after nine tournaments, these are they;
THL Dietrich von Andernach Citadel 16 pts.

Please know that there are many unbelted fighters who have not partaken of this series of tournaments. No worries as there is no time like the present to jump into the series. Fight when you can and do your best!
Please see the Nahrun Kabirun website for directions to "Clann War" and the tournament there!
