Come practice your SCA war skills before the spring war season starts up! This will be an event that focuses on getting the rust knocked off our war skills and getting new war fighters underway. Classes will focus on helping fighters gain the skills they need to advance as single war fighters and create units that will be effective in all situations. This will be a day full of fun for individual fighters, existing units and new units that are just learning to work together.
Facebook Site: West Kingdom War College 2014
Autocrat: Anne of Bradford
The first half of the day will be classes, with war scenarios for both heavy and rapier fighters in the afternoon. See the Facebook site for class listings. Don't be late, we will be starting on time!
There will be a hot dog fundraiser to benefit the Equestrian Clinician's Travel Fund.
The second half of the day will be war games: 7-man teams competing in various war challenges, there is no rule against having more so you can swap out guys if some one gets tired or hurt. There will be many scenarios that will test each unit on their leadership skills and technical skills.
More info: Each Unit will be scored on four aspects for EACH scenario they compete in.
1. Over all look of the unit (Do you just look like a thrown together band or an actual unit)
2. Is your unit ready to go?
3. Effectiveness and Cohesion as a unit
4. Over all victory
Please come join us in this opportunity! This will be a day full of fun for existing units and new units that are just learning to work together. Don't miss this opportunity to get feed back or start teaching the next generation of war fighters!
