All combatants where expected to perform a short silly dance to honor the winner of this tourney, but I sure didn't see it, and was very disappointed, being as it was a requirement of the tourney. However, four combatants decided to give it another round, where you didn't get the point for winning the Hill, only those you won while holding the hill. (I have bolded the point wins)
  1. Gwynfor: Everard, Belesario, Crowbarr, Everard, Everard, Belesario, Crowbarr,Everard, Everard, Belesario, Everard, Crowbarr, Belesario, Everard, Belesario, Crowbarr, Everard

  4. Crowbarr: Belesario, Belesario, Everard, Gwynfor, Gwynfor, Gwynfor, Belesario

Mirrored pell work

Jason brought this drill to Krae Glas training last night

Drill: Two people stand on opposite sides of a pell. One person is leading. The leading person throws a shot. The other person attempts to land exactly the same shot on the pell as quickly as possible, ideally the shots should land a fraction of a second apart.

Purpose: To help the person following to anticipate shots from early indicators (opponent's body position etc.). To alert the person leading as to whch shots are being telegraphed.
