PostSubject: Battle for the Ring IV MLK Weekend Jan 13-16th 2012   Mon Sep 05, 2011 11:10 pm

We are pleased to announce Battle for the Ring IV, a national Belegarth fighting event over MLK weekend (January 13th-16th) in Chino, California. Battle for the Ring IV is a four-day camping event, with 3 days of official fighting. Last year BfR was a one-day event which drew over 250 fighters and guests; this year, we expect hundreds of fighters from across the country.

In addition to providing an excellent and intense fighting experience, Battle for the Ring is focused on growing the sport by introducing new and cross-sport fighters to the national Belegarth community.

For more information, check out our Facebook Event page at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=162807510465080

Registration: Registration costs $30 at the door, or $20 through pre-registration. To Pre-Reg, send $20 through Paypal to BftRIV@gmail.com, or mail a check to Anduril C/O "Ana Nagel" at 521 South Lyon St. Unit #22, Santa Ana, CA, 92701. Please make the checks out to "Ana Nagel." Make sure to include your real and fighting name so we can add you to the list, and print out and bring along a copy of your Paypal confirmation email. These fees go to pay for the site, insurance, feast, prizes, and etc.

Fighting: Official heralded fighting Friday afternoon, all day Saturday, all day Sunday. Unofficial fighting Friday morning and Monday all day. We will feature massive field battles, theme battles, tournaments with prizes, and etc.

Camping: Camps sites open at 1:30pm on Friday, January 13th and close at 1:30pm on Monday, January 16th. A limited number of spaces are available Thursday and Monday night for those who need to come early/stay late, contact Anastasia at BftRIV@gmail.com for arrangements.

Facilities: This site features indoor toilets, working showers, and a washer/dryer for clothes ( shower and washer/dryer require quarters, available at check-in desk).

Game Nights: BFR IV will feature a nightly Dragon's Inn, an indoor Game Room featuring board games, collectible card games (especially MTG), tabletop RPGs, and the like. If you have any decks, boardgames, or one-shots you'd like to run, bring them along. Contact Brian if you have any questions.

Feast: There will be a feast, a potluck, and a pancake breakfast provided. Details to come. Each will be held on different days.

Mission Statement: The sport of Medieval fighting has gained a great deal of national recognition in recent years, yet we continue to divide ourselves into small, secluded secluded groups, keeping us from presenting a united face to the world at large. We believe that our sport is larger than we think; and although some of us prefer heavier or lighter combat, more or less roleplaying, and so forth, we believe there is more that unites us than divides us.

The primary goal of Battle for the Ring is to provide an intense and excellent fighting and social experience to our experienced and returning fighters. At the same time, we hope to use Battle for the Ring to introduce new fighters who have never been to a national event, as well as cross-sport fighters who are interested in our method of play, to the national Belegarth community. We are dedicated to creating an enjoyable and educational experience for new fighters, fostering unity and good relations across sports, and ultimately creating a friendly, mutually supportive community through which the sport of Medieval Combat can grow in strength, popularity, and fame.

Last BFtR was AWESOOOOME! Making it a Campout will be Legendary!!! The campsite is quite nice with facilities spread conveniently across the grounds. I don't think the water from taps is potable. Though I'm certain the stuff from the water fountains is.

It broke my heart to see that Stryder was the only one that made it last year.

Even if I have to drive myself out to vegas that week and drag some of you back with me kicking and screaming while strapped to my roof rack... I will... January 13th is far enough away to put in some time off.

I have to make sure I put in for the right date, but I put in for that Friday off from work and they approved it. So, tentatively I will be leaving early friday morning and coming home late Sunday. I have to work that Monday even though the kiddies are out of school.

Of course, I owe you one as it is.

Now I have to ask the wife. I have to time it right cuz otherwise I'll get the dreaded:

How come you can always remember your group events but can never remember to take your wife out on a date!

of course, she's right, I'm terrible.

Just a friendly reminder from your neighborhood Head of Security.

Under 18 will need an over 21 Chaperone at the event. Violations of federal, state, or Prado Park rule will result in the removal of both.

And just so no one thinks they are exempt from this, I'm playing enforcer and I'll boot your ass faster than you can swing a flail.

Hell, if Ana started passing out heroin, I'd boot her from her own event.

So, please don't be dumb or you'll see me really pissed off.

Still not sure if I'll be going. I can get the time off work... but missing two days will cost me about $160... No And I have some big expenses coming in January, also. Dunno. Not feeling it. I might change my mind after I see where I stand financially in the 1st week of January.

On a more positive note, has anyone put together a list of the Barad'dun peeps that will be going to the BtfR IV? Its less than a month away, so I think a roll call might be in order. Laughing

Anyone that needs rides might want to start securing them, as well. Just saying.

Doesn't look like I have the funds to either go myself or to catch a ride. I'll have to plan on making next year's battle.

Were any of you able to go? We had a thermostat breakdown that cost us about $1,000 to repair and pay for the gas/electric bills since the heater was simultaneously fighting against the air conditioner for the entire month of November.
