In these days of turmoil and cancelations creativity gets the job done. On Tuesday, September 8 the Shire of Stan Wyrm had a very special Fighter Practice. We invited our local populace to put on their finery and join us. Since we have not had an event since February many of our participants have never been to an event, so we held our Armored Champion Tournament to help our new people get the feeling for a real event. Please enjoy a little taste of our world!
Please note: This was a practice, no site fee was charged. Currently local Health Department regulations allow for practice for groups under 50. All Covid-19 precautions were taken including, local participants only, having it outdoors, social distancing, wearing of masks and use of sanitizers.
