Description

L'Arte Della Bellica presents FlowerPoint 2018, a Longpoint Historical Fencing League Event. Sponsored by The Kutztown University Medieval Renaissance Club. Hosted at the Kutztown University Student Rec Center, East and West Gyms. http://www.kurecreation.com/facilities/Facility_Information

Flowerpoint 2018 is a Longpoint Historical Fencing League Event longsword tournament, and this year includes classes and a dagger tournament as well as some free mat time.

On Friday we will host a small variety of Non-Longsword classes. We are including classes from Tim Hall (Ringen), James Clark (Montante), and Patrick McCaffrey (Dagger) with other instructors being planned. Scheduling and location are to be determined, but we will update regularly on our Facebook Event Page.

The FlowerPoint Longsword tournament has a ruleset that focuses on not getting hit more than 'Priority Targets'. The general organization of this tournament will be sets of pools where participants will face other fighters (size of pools and number of fights TBD, but should be similar to 2017). Each match will be a set of 3 exchanges, with no time-limit (assuming no stalling). Every quality hit is a life lost from the fighter's cache of lives. If both fighters deliver quality hits, both fighters will lose a life. After pools, the fighters with the most lives remaining will face off in an elimination pool followed by a finals pool. Rules for 2018 can be found Here.

The lunch included with registration will be on location again. We are planning on doing the create your own Deli Sandwich buffet including: Sliced Oven-Roasted Turkey, Sliced Roast Beef, Deli Ham and Tuna; Cheese and Relish Tray; includes Appropriate Condiments, Assorted Baked Breads and Rolls served with two (2) Side Salads and Assorted Cookies. Please contact the event organizers if you have any food allergies or restrictions.

After the tournament is over, we will be heading to a local bar/restaurant for dinner.

On Sunday, there is a Dagger Tournament at L'Arte Della Bella's club location in Kutztown. The Soryukan Dojo and Healing Arts in Kutztown, located at 206 North Whiteoak Street, Kutztown, PA, 19530, hosts L'Arte's weekly classes and will host a Dagger tournament using a modified version of IGX 2017's Dagger ruleset on Sunday starting in the late morning and going until completion, after which we will have a fun Wrestling Game tournament and free time on the mats.
