For the Youths (ages 6 to 17), we will be having a fighting workshop starting at 9:00 am and running until 12:00 (lunch time). At 2:00 pm we will start the prize tourney. The workshop will introduce new fighters to the program or work with more experienced fighters on techniques and styles. 

For the Adults (present due to having youths participating), we will be having a YAC open discussion which will run the same length of time the YAC workshop lasts. The discussion topics will range from becoming a YAC Marshal, to the future of the program in An Tir. If there are new parents present, time will be spent explaining to them the overall scope of the program.
