Back by popular demand, the Laurels and Pelicans will take to the field with boffer weapons and a sense of humor to raise money for the Pennsic War chest, which funds expenses such as the royalty dinner. This year is a combination of one-on-one bouts and melees. The peerage with the most points at the end of the competition gets bragging rights for the year.

The peers will go out defenseless without the help of their supporters. They only get weapons if they get donations. The weapons they use depend on the money they raise. Fundraising closes on Monday, June 23 so specialty weapons can get made. Weapon amounts are:

Dagger - $25 Sword - $50 Two Sword/Sword & Shield - $75
Specialty Weapon - $100

SPECIAL OFFER: Baroness Sabine de Kerbriant will play entrance music for a peer on her rauschpfeife for a $20 donation. Peers have either chosen theme music, are picking it now or offering donor's choice (you pay for it, you pick it). If Baroness Sabine can play it - modern or period - then it's an option.
