These movies where taken
with our Sony Digital Camera. It takes movies up to 40 seconds long
according to the manual. We where able to get one 51 seconds long. The
camera doesn't tell you how much space is left on the floppy so we lost
some of the action while changing the disc. The battery ran out before
the day was over losing even more of the action shots we hoped to get.
The next time we will use a camcorder and change the fights to .MPG file
format at a later time.
We like to observe the safety rules at all
times, but being human sometimes we do get hurt. The following scene is
how this sometimes happens. Sir Matt wasn't seriously hurt and was able
to fight a short time later, and did rather well at that. Sir Eric was
given a Point of Honor for allowing Sir Matt to not have this round
count as a kill in the Froth and Slash and Sir Matt resumed fighting
later and I believe he finished second in this event.
This is a simple event. You hold a mug of water
in one hand trying not to spill it while fighting for your life and
trying to kill your opponent. The winner is the one to kill all the
other fighters and still have some water left. Basically
designed after an old time bar fight with a mug of Ale in one hand and a
Sword in the other. It's not as easy as it sounds, but it is a lot of
There Can Be Only One!
This event was taken from the Highlander.
Whichever fighter scores a headshot first wins. This event requires a
great deal of blade control and skill to score the hit without hurting
the other person and/or getting killed.
