Myrg A&S Championship is a month away. You still have time to join. You will get to be part of the fun of A&S competitions and receive feedback by highly talented people on your craft.

You can also choose not to run for champion and just come show off your art/craft/skills. Do you make arrows, come tell us about it? have you made a new piece of armor, we want to know how it was done? Have you tried different medieval recipes, come tell us about it? We will plan out the display area around what people want to talk about. Myrg is full of high talented people.

Hello Avacal
Myrgan Wood Anniversary is right around the corner and with it comes the Myrgan Wood Armoured Championship.
Long have I stood on guard in this land as Champion, and I would see this post filled.

Tournament format will be decided depending on the number of entrants.
All legal weapon styles shall be permitted.
We wish all to have a inspiration but due to a variety of Covid comfort levels we understand if your inspiration is unable to attend.
There will be a prize tournament for all fighters, but the Armoured Championship shall be fought by those with the Blood of the Wood in their veins, both those who live in the Barony and those flung far.

Finally, all entrants should have a SCA membership in good standing, and make themselves presentable to myself and the Baron and Baroness of Myrgan Wood.

I look forward to seeing everyone!

Sir Dmitrii Korsak,
Myrgan Wood Armoured Champion
