A & S competitions and Classes
Drums of war is just around the corner and it’s time to start getting your A&S projects ready.
Click HERE for the Schedule of Classes. 

Competition #1:
Nothing scares your enemies more than thinking huge armies are attacking.
One thing that opposing armies can see from a long distance are banners.
 So the competition will be for the best banner that will either show kingdom, barony, canton, personal and/or household pride.
 Rules:
1. The banners will be displayed all day long around the fighting field. Exact times to be announced closer to the event.
2. You must bring your own pole and portable hole. 
3. You cannot require any external lines/ropes to hold up the pole. We don’t want anyone tripping and getting hurt
4. You cannot use the list fence as support.
5. The pole can be no longer than 10 foot high. (see #3 for the reason)
6. No documentation necessary, this is all about making something pretty and showing pride.
7. There is no size requirement on the banner but please remember that you don’t want to make your banner so big it drags on the ground or hits people in the face.

Competition #2:
Fighters rarely get to participate in A&S because they are off defending their homes and loved ones.
Have a new helm you want to show off? A new tabard? New armor? Want an excuse to get some new things?
Want to impress the ladies (or men)? It’s time to get it out and show it off.
This year before they take the field, we will be having a fighter fashion show.

Rules:
1. The fashion show will be before fighting begins for the day. Exact times to be announced closer to the event.
2. You must be ready to walk the runway errr battlefield and show off how fierce you can be.
3. No documentation is necessary this is all about having fun and looking GREAT.
