Words from the Kingdom Earl Marshall

 

Double Wars is for many the start of the event season, and as usual all armours and weapons need to be maintained and inspected regularly. As usual the armour of each fighter needs to be inspected and approved by one of the appointed Marshals.

 

Remember:

 

  • A fighter's armour only needs to be inspected once per event – as long as nothing is replaced or repaired then it has to be re-inspected.
  • An armour is only inspected on that specific fighter – if the armour is lent to another fighter it has to be re-inspected on him or her.
  • All weapons needs to be (re)inspected at the start of each fighting day – even if the weapon has not been used or altered since last inspection.

 

 

Additional safety focus areas for Double Wars XXXI

 

On the order of the Kingdom Earl Marshal this year there will be a couple of focus areas for the inspecting Marshals. Information on this is hereby provided in advance to raise awareness of certain high risk areas to heighten and maintain the safety standards.

 

  • Additional focus will be put on the inspection of the helmets, especially padding and chin-strapping of the helmets.
  • Additional focus will also be put on the total length of fiberglass spears and the construction and fastening of the thrusting tips.

 

For Double Wars XXXI we will also provide opportunities to empower the Marshal community by information and training, in for example War Marshalling. If you are interested keep your eyes open for scheduled activities in this area.

 

Finally the Earl Marshal wishes all a very fun and safe Double Wars!
