I went to my first renaissance fair last weekend, and found these guys who were sword fighting with foam swords. It was a dollar to challenge a knight, and I did. He was really good and gave me a bunch of tips. I had to stop after a half-hour because there was a show my brother wanted to see. After the show, one of the knights recognized and told me to go to the sword tournament. He caught me just in time because the tournament started as soon as I made it over there. I ended being put against a guy who does this a lot and owned a variety of his own swords. I actually held my own against him and lasted a lot longer than every other fight so far. The guyís friends complemented me and said I did really good and suggested I join the club he plays at. Itís called Dagorhir, and it looks like so much fun. Thereís a tun of rules to make it really fair and fun. Iíve already started building a strategy that involves wrestling (thereís a section on wrestling rules, Iíll have to make some sacrifices such as armor, but itíll be worth it. Also, in order to play, you have to have a costume. You need a tunic with moccasins and fur leggings and cool stuff like that. Iím really excited for it all.
