 The Sergeantry of Wealdsmere, in addition to Their Excellencies Lars and Kara, do cordially invite you to invite your old friends and new friends to join Us for Wealdsmere’s FREE Sergeants Trials and Newcomers Event!  

 Not only will candidates be trying their hand at the Sergeantry Trials but as well the Sergeants of Wealdsmere have a weekend filled with fun and merriment.  It’s destined to be hot in the last weekend in July but don’t let that scare you away because we have taken that into account...

 Tournaments for Heavy, Rapier, YAC and Combat Archery (not regular archery, come prepared to shoot a few combat arrows at water balloons!) in the cool hours of the morning and then lots of opportunities to cool down with Nap time, A & S, games and even a Henry the 8th eating contest followed by a Rukus Bardic and dessert social.  Wealdsmere will also host a Newcomers Tour class with resources galore.  And what is even better than all of this?  ITS A FREE EVENT!
