Dagorhir! on July 11

The Lawrence Public Library and the Realm of Emberfeld are having a Dagorhir demonstration on July 11 from 2:30 – 3:30 on the Library Plaza (between the library and the parking garage.)

Dagorhir is a sword fighting sport that uses foam weapons and equipment to simulate medieval-style battles.

The equipment we use is designed to be as safe as possible and we take the safety of the participants very seriously. Since the fighters at this event will be younger than normal, this will be even more the case, but as this is a full contact sport, we do require a waiver signed by a parent/guardian for participation. When filling it out, the Character Name, Realm,and Unit lines may be ignored and be sure to fill out both the front and the back.

Fight on,

Chris Mayo

Administrator, Realm of Emberfeld

Download the Dagohir Waiver here or you can pick one up at the Teen Zone.
