Bacon Wars

I risked the weather, and ended up having a great time at the event. Philip was kind enough to drive, and we had no trouble at all getting to the site, deep in the Chesapeake Bay hinterlands, reminiscent of the old South. In fact we were pretty early. It's probably a sign of how taken with the day that I was, that I didn't find any time to pull out my camera and take any pictures.

Was great to see people (though I'm a little surprised at how low the attendance was) and fighting was pretty good. I didn't experience any problems anyway, but Philip, Chris and I focused on guarding a flank, so never really interacted with the cart itself. Care Mear pretty handily defeated Tir Y don in the majority of the melees, securing their victory for the day.
After that Came the Cross and Lily tournament, and I'm happily surprised to reveal that fighting through a pretty interesting field, I ended up finishing second overall for the day. Definitely my best fight for the day was a tough one versus his Majesty, which I managed to win, surprising even myself.
My newly re-gloved gauntlets barely require any adjustment, all my weapons held up, I didn't forget anything, so all in all local the day I win.
But damn, I'm going to be sore tomorrow.
