Our registration page will go live soon!
Lord Baltimore's Challenge was created with a number of goals in mind. Here are just a few:
- To promote rapier and sidesword play on the East coast.
- To, accordingly, bring in several of the top instructors of the rapier and sidesword arts to teach at one location.
- To design tournaments that feature experienced instructors as dedicated ring directors and judges.
- To promote a robust inter-mingling of the HEMA and SCA steel combat communities.
- To offer up a chance for fencers to test themselves, stretch beyond their comfort zones, meet new people, and have a great time.
This is the third LBC! The first two ran smoothly and, according to the feedback, was well received by the attendees and instructors. I hope you attend for the tournaments, the classes, or both, and, if you do, I sincerely hope you leave with a smile on your face, new knowledge in your head, and new friends to look forward to seeing again.
