Study in Steel 2020

Study in Steel 2020 Cancelled

We regret that we have had to cancel this year’s Study in Steel.  We love hosting all of you at the event, but growing concerns over coronavirus and traveling have led us to this.  It is a bad situation, and this is the best choice we can make.  We will miss you terribly this time around, but promise that the next Study in Steel will be the best one ever!

Join us April 24-26 for SiS 2020!

Schedule Quick Peak

Friday evening all are invited for an informal get-together at the organizer’s home, Spade & Blade.

Saturday all day and Sunday afternoon will have tournaments and classes at Imagine Sports + Fitness.  Lunch will be served at the venue on Saturday.

Saturday night will be an outdoor, casual dinner party at Spade & Blade with homestead-raised pork and chicken, with fixings.

We are excited to host Study in Steel for the sixth time! We are still working out details, but here is the basic rundown:

Friday 6:00pm at Spade & Blade (Aaron’s homestead) for Games, Bonfire, and general carousing.

Saturday 8:00am check-in at Imagine Sports + Fitness for a day of Longsword (including Women’s and Youth, given enough competitors) and Paired Technique Tournaments. Lunch will be included.

Saturday Night will be Dinner Party at Spade & Blade. Come hungry, because we will be cooking a home-raised pig and chickens along with plenty of fixings.

Sunday at 1:00pm we will be back at Imagine for our new favorite event, the Team Competition with three weapons: Longsword, Messer, and Sidesword & Buckler/Dagger.  We are also adding an exciting new event: Das Grublein!  This is a wrestling game that is both fun to participate in and fun to watch.

We are opening up Spade & Blade this time to anyone who would like to camp out instead of getting a hotel.

Again, we are very excited about SiS2020, so plan on coming and tell your friends! Thanks!
