Instructor Cancellation

Roman Vučajnk has unfortunately had to cancel his participation due to illness, leading to changes to the schedule. The Mirror Hall is now free for warming up and the like on Friday morning, the Red Hall is free for sparring after Andreas Engström’s workshop on Saturday morning, and Roman’s workshop on Saturday afternoon has been replaced by Meyer Rapier & Dagger with our own Robin Hedlund and Rickard Waern.

Pools Are Live!

Pools for the Swordfish XI bladed tournaments are live, and can be found under the tournaments menu option. The tournament management reserve the right to make changes as necessary. Detailed timetable and finalized pools (if changes have been required) are posted tomorrow (Thursday) evening.

We remind all participants in the longsword, sabre, rapier & dagger and sword & buckler tournaments that gear check for the pool you are in will take place 15 minutes before the pool is scheduled to start, and ask you to inform us as soon as possible if something has come in the way of your participation.

Gear Check Changes

Information for all tournament participants:

A change this year is that gear checks for the various tournaments at Swordfish XI no longer are held in their entirety at the beginning of the tournaments. Gear checks will instead be performed for by the tournament managers (Carl Ryrberg and Magnus Lundberg) at the head secretariat table for individual pools 15 minutes before those pools start. No more being forced to get up early even though you’re in a late pool! (You’re welcome.)

If you are uncertain of the state of your gear, you can find and talk to Carl and/or Magnus about it on Thursday evening.

The tournament managers will check that you have a Swordfish wristband during gear check – in other words you need to have registered your arrival in the reception prior to competing.
