Post from a prior Rumble, (Jan 2019)
“It was a phenomenal night at the Knights Hall last night at the third annual Rookie Rumble!! 26 fighters were chosen between two teams captained by Marie Rose Lynn and Marco Damiano!
Marie brought Team Kickass and Marco, his Marauders to the field!! These rookies fought valiantly as we tried out a shiny new format for the fighting! 15 minute quarters began with a singles duel, then went straight into 5v5 melee action for as many rounds as they could fight in the remaining 10 minutes of the quarter! Each round won scored a point. The Marauders fought hard and brought some pain, but in the end Team Kickass won the team portion of the evening 16 to 3.
Thats when the fun started.
Marie and Marco took the field to begin. Then every 15 seconds a new fighter entered the list! This continued until there was a last man standing!
Our last man standing last night was the indomitable Josh Barber winning the 2019 Rookie Rumble!
It was truly an amazing evening with some incredible new talent to watch out for in the list!
Thank you to all who came out to fight, support, and spectate!
This sport wouldn’t be where we are today without every single one of you!!”

“And therein were many knights and squires to behold, scaffolds and pavilions; for there upon the morn should be a great tournament: and the lord of the tower was in his castle and looked out at a window, and saw a damsel, a dwarf, and a knight armed at all points.”
