Early summer Wednesdays give us mild temperatures, fresh air and ideal conditions for heavy fighter´s practise. While all the cracks are away for 30Years (have fun!), we use the time for getting better. So come and join us this evening for some improvement in our skills.
Springtime is here and our heavy fighters preapare to fullfill their duty for society. Heavy Fighting combines, in the spirit of the Society for Creative Anachronism, arts and sports (that is, why it is called “marial ARTS”). Join our weekly heavy fighters practise at the lovely, green Vienna Prater hockey stadium.
A Crown Tournament is a peak level event in each Kingdom. At Spring Crown Tournament Drachwenwald´s keenest fighters were assembled at the muddy fields of Ittlingen (Knight´s Crossing) to find heirs for Drachenwald´s crown.
14 fighters, lords and ladies, left- and righthanded met in heavy armored fighting. Ad Flumen Caerulum sent Lord Flose Thordson and Saidra ad Iscula. Alienor de Salignac chose to consort Master Aelric of Battle to underline the friendship with the Shire of Meadowmarsh. They where accompanied by a huge number of companions, meanwhile known as “AFC Ultras” (best away fans ever!).
After endless struggles, glorious triumphs and sad losses, Sir Sven Gunnarsson won the honour of being Drachenwald´s next king.
Our thanks go to the marvellous event staff, who managed reservation, feast kitchen and of course the tournament organization. So many helping hands from different regions working together show the solidarity between the regions. May there be many more!
Here are some heavy fighting videos from the Crown Tournament => Videos on Flickr
The 2023 boot camp at the Shire of Meadowmarsh is over. We still think over the lessons learned and the new friends we have gained. We had some of Drachenwald´s finest fighters with us, who loved to share their experiences in theory and practise. Of course we took the opportunity to such a large bunch of heavy fighters for melee. Nothing is more exciting than the clash of two heavy fighter groups in full armor and full speed. Once more the superior tactics has more influence on the result as the induvidual quality of a fighter.
To be guest at an event is always a great honour. We appreciate the countless hours of preparation by the event crew, the endless time spent for preparing, cooking and cleaning by the kitchen staff and the many helping hands that make an event unforgettable. Therefore we wish to thank our noble hosts, their supporters and the trainers at Meadowmarsh Boot Camp 2023. It was a great weekend!
