War College

Saturday January 31st, 2015 to Sunday February 1st, 2015
Manteca, California

War College - 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.  Come practice and compete with all those skills you have been working on with Ajax’s war practices. Don’t forget that there is a practice at 12th Night! Please see the invite: West Kingdom War Practice (12th Night) in your Facebook events!

The first half of the day will be classes - don't be late, we will be starting on at 10:30AM! Please bring the gear you will need for the class; some loaner equipment will be available but there is a limited supply.

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 someone 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 feedback or start teaching the next generation of war fighters!
