Our annual Gyldenholt Unbelted Tournament will be held at Cedar Grove Park on Saturday, January 25th, 2019. The combat shall be single elimination, except that a second life may be gained by demonstration of a recent art or science project. Entries will be on display throughout the day. If you plan to take your entry into combat, please provide a photo and brief description of the piece for the display. Fighters with an arts entry will be given a token to be redeemed at the list table for a second life. There will also be a people’s choice arts and science competition, which will be open to all. A prize will be awarded to the Most Well-Rounded Fighter of the day. Entrants are encouraged to sign up at gate and enter all the contests throughout the day which are designed to not interfere with the fighting.
