The Staff Invitational is a new event for 2015. This is an evolution from the Counted Blows invitational offered in 2014 to specifically allow those people who volunteer their time a chance to fight in a low-staff environment. This event will likely continue to be based on historical rule sets like the Counted Blows or Franco-Belgian. To reward our volunteers that give up fighting in our biggest event, the Open Steel Longsword, staff from that event will be given preference in filling the spaces for this Invitational.
More information will be posted about this as it becomes available.
