Atlantia 30 Year: Pretty darn good

So, August 20th, Dante posts this:

Funny?  Yes.

Especially since he, at least, knew this was going to happen on Saturday:

So… yeah, it was a good weekend.

My foot there, with the flame duct-tape?  That’s Das Boot.  They still made me fight my prize, and I think I acquitted myself decently.

I have no idea how the fighting was at that event, somebody else should feel free to comment.

    Vivat Wistric, OWS!

    Fighting? There were like a dozen provosts. It was glorious. And upon meeting him for the first time, I may have made some thoughtless commentary on Dominyk’s height (the rumors of his battlefield prowess somewhat stoked the imagination). I’m sure that’ll haunt me.

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations again!

    Being as muggy as it was Saturday and being as hungover as I was Saturday and how hot it was Sunday, my memory’s not 100% on some of the details, but as far as I recall:

    Saturday:
    5 round Bedford points tourney – Dominyk won
    5? round Bedford Points tourney – Connor? won

    Dominyk got a Sea Stag

    Sunday:
    Iron spike tourney – single elimination free scholars only – Armand won against Benjamin in the final
    Double elimination tourney – sword and rigid parry – Geoffrey won from the losers’ bracket over Armand in the final

    Overall, I felt like I didn’t get much fighting in. There were pretty long periods between rounds in the tourneys on Saturday so the tourney took a long time, but involved maybe 30 passes combined. I seemed to have the *luck* of drawing nearly all of my fights against provosts and, while I fought okay, I didn’t last very long in Sunday’s tournament (using a buckler which I don’t really do). I had heard Sunday was supposed to be a bearpit tourney and I was really disappointed that it wasn’t. I did a couple pickups after the tournament, but everyone dispersed pretty quickly.

    Ruairc,

    Dominyk made a facebook post about that last night

    Congratulations on becoming a Broken Provosts.

  • Dominyk

    I thought your comment was hilarious Ruairc.

    Dominyk – giving hope to short fencers everywhere.
