Armor inspection will begin at 8:00AM with country assignment taking place at Morning Court.

The Target Archery tournament will take place concurrent with the Rapier Tournament. Archers will be called forth to prove the prowess of their Country and will provide bonuses or penalties to their Rapier counterparts depending on their results
