Yes, Polearm, the one true weapon's form where your shield is your skill.
During this Pennsic War 36, Tarl Shadowraven is hosting the second annual
"Tarl's Little Polearm Tourney." It is to be held on SATURDAY Aug. 4th with
MOL sign in starting at 1 p.m. in the White list.
The only requirement is to show up with your polearm and be ready to have a
good time. Any skill level will be admitted. There will be a multitude of
prizes including but not limited to massages, T-shirts, gift baskets, and
gift certificates to armorers as well as training with great fighters like
Duke Sir Brannos, Duke Sir Ragnvaldr, his Majesty Rurik of Aethelmearc and
more. There will also be a grand prize that will be personally defended by
"The Tarl." But this tournament isn't about winning. It is about glory,
telling stories, and PRIZES. Yes, prizes will abound for everything from
'best fight,' 'most chivalrous,' 'fighting the longest (as in years),' best
polearm name, ugliest helmet, and any other reason we can come up with to
give out prizes because we aim for EVERYONE to get a prize!
The tournament format will be a bear pit with a preference for small lists
to ensure more fighting. Lists may also be divided by skill level, so if you
are new to the form or an old hand, there is a place for you. Weapon and
armor standards will be as per Pennsic rules. If anyone wants to come out to
watch and help pick who gets prizes (like "ladies choice" or "crowd's
favorite") or to marshal, you are more than welcome to join us. Last year we
had close to 50 fighters and hopefully it will be even bigger this year.
I know even you hardcore sword and shield types prance in front of the
mirror with a polearm when you think no one is looking just to see how cool
you look. So if you love polearm or simply want to punish me for my
insolence, then join us.
Local listings, incredible imagery, and driving directions - all in one
