Society Cut & Thrust Rules Update
Greetings from Sir Duncan Mac Torquill, Kingdom Rapier Marshall for the Kingdom of Calontir.
As most of you know the Society Rapier Marshall has published some updates to the cut and thrust rules. The rule changes include additional requirements for hand protection and will affect all of us. The rules are set to go into affect July 27, 2018 so they will be applied at Pennsic but will not be applied at this upcoming Lilies War. That being said, I encourage you to get together the equipment you plan to use to meet the new requirements so we can discuss what will work at Lilies.
The War of the Lilies is an annual event held in the center of the Kingdom of Calontir in June. It has been said that Lilies is so much like a vacation, you may forget it is a war, and it is our hope to continue that tradition.
Events in italic AND bold are Royal events - no other official event can conflict.
