Knight's Gambit

February 28, 2015

Doster Community Center
424 S. Northington St.
Prattville, AL 36067

The Shire of Thorngill invites you to a climate controlled fighting event, indoors!.

Come spend the day with the Knights of Meridies! Show off your skills in the Robert Hightower Unbelted Classic, and then train, one on one, with the Knights! There will be a Knights Q & A during lunch, everyone is invited. We will have a scriptorium and a place for non-fighters to chat. This is a one day event, but there are many hotels in the area and some crash space as well. A fabulous lunch Feast will be available (instead of an evening feast) perfect for fighters!

Site opens Saturday at 8AM and closes at 7PM. Please note that this is Day Trip only. The location is central to several hotels. Please know this is a dry site.
