Fighter Practice

Is your interest piqued? Are you ready to strap on some armor and hit people with sticks? Then why not meet us at a Fighter Practice? Fighter Practice is held almost every week on Tuesday nights from 7pm to 10pm at the Southwest corner of Reid Park in the center of Tucson. It’s a great chance to come out and meet with the Barony and learn with the rest of us. Please be aware that limited loaner armor is available, and you MUST bring your own groin protection.

Populace Meetings

The Barony of Tir Ysgithr has monthly Populace meetings.

All members of the populace, whether paid members or not are invited and encouraged to attend these meetings. During these meetings the Seneschal and the Baron and Baroness will discuss past events, upcoming events, and ask Baronial Officers to give their officer reports.

This is an opportunity for You, the Populace, to see and participate in the inner workings of the Barony. Officers make every effort to attend and participate in these meetings, so if you are interested in becoming an officer, this is a good place to start!

Meetings are usually held at Himmel Park, either in the Himmel Park Library, or just to the South of the Library under the trees (depending on the weather).

Please check the Baronial Calendar for meeting days and times, or the Tusker Times.  Populace Meetings can also be found on the Baronial Facebook page under the “Events” section.

For more information about Populace Meetings, please contact the Baronial Seneschal at
