pics as promised - pt 3

The one is red is actually a woman (there were two women on the field that day).



OMG - real swords.



Grand Melee!




The man in green was quite good even though he didn't seem to have quite the same amount of armour as the others (not sure what he had on under the padding though).



You can't really tell just how hard they were going for it, in the photos. We saw one shield get splintered, so there was a fair bit of force going into those blows.

Wow. I would love to wield a sword like that at dinner time in my household. And at cleaning up time. That'd make me mighty impressive.

You know, the weather looks just a little *too* nice there.

tasha - it was hard to get some good pics really. There was so much action in the ring there that some were pretty ordinary. I think we need a better camera though.

my float - it would be cool, wouldn't it? Mind you, I think I'd have to fight J for it, otherwise I'd never get a turn ;)

robin - it was an absolutely perfect day. Not too hot, sunny and a little breeze. October here is just lovely.
