INFORMATION FOR EVENT PARTICIPANTS
This will be the third year that we host a sparring event, to fund raise for West Neighbourhood House. We will also be donating to a Syrian Refugee Fund. Both organizations offer support to the homeless and needy in Toronto.
The event will be a marshaled historical sword arts sparring event, and participants will be asked to raise a minimum of $30 in order to participate, but if you are unable to raise funds, you may still participate. Beyond that, we encourage you to ask your friends and family to sponsor you for your day of sparring to help raise money for our cause. There is no limit to how much money can be raised by one person. But donations are NOT for individual sparring bouts.
A safety check for your gear will take place at the beginning of the day, we reserve the right to refuse usage of gear that we deem unsafe. We will do our best to provide you with safe loaner gear if this happens.
Armoured and unarmoured will be mixed all day. Time will be given for armoured participants to disarm and sparr unarmoured.. Each participant is guaranteed a minimum of 5 rounds.
At the moment, our site at Trinity Bellwoods is not confirmed, if we are unable to get this space, we will be located at Pia Bouman at 6 noble street starting at 10:30 AM. Feel free to invite observers.
