( ... L&t=m&z=14)

Troll opens - $25 for the weekend

24/7 Ditch lights for night fighting
(likely some kind of dinner served)

Michael Hammer of God's tournaments
Jugging tournaments
Playtesting QUIDDICH
Regular ditching 24/7

Main quest/themed battle on the DnD module (Descent into the Depths), in the wooded area we have for woods battles. No where is off limits to go except for the outer rim of the battle area, anywhere within is fair game. Although beware of the thorns and spider webs, there are lots of them out in the middle of the brush.
Ditching 24/7
(breakfast and dinner feast and possible lunch served)

Clean up camp
Head home
(breakfast served)

Nightlife will be karaoke Friday and Saturday as well as 24/7 ditch lights in multiple locations for the different games. Possibility of Mayan football tourneys and pit fights as well both nights, and Saturday will entail a full open bar for the event as a whole. Last year Bardic and Karaoke were combined and it was turned into an "American Idol" style deal and people got crucified by Sol Invictus if they got booed off stage (which was usually a humorous occasion) and fun was had by all.
As you may have gathered by looking at the website or having heard about it before hand or through pictures, this event includes the three big foam fighting games. (Amtgard, Belegarth, and Dagorhir) A feeling similar to Lord of War, this is the closest foam fighting is currently to a "foam fighting convention". During the day Amtgard will do it's thing with quests and ditching and field battles, and Bel/Dag will do it's thing, such as what I listed. We will be doing a combined weapons check taking the looser rules from each game for Bel/Dag weapons check. We are open to dividing the games and the fighting, but need successful numbers and involvement from both games as well as interest in splitting fighting before we are able to do so.

But come on guys, only an hour and 15 minutes from Champaign and 2hrs from Bloomington, some of the best stick fighting PERIOD, 25$ for 24/7 ditch lights, 5 meals, and an open bar on Saturday night. Michael Hammer of God's tourney is the biggest tourney I've ever seen, and most competitive. Fox and likely Caleidah have already volunteered to help with weapons check and heralding, you guys should SERIOUSLY come to this!
Last year we had 350ish attendees and great times and even better fighting had by all, definitely a do not miss event!

Crossgame, because who the hell ever played just ONE game on the playground?
