The Seventh Annual Baile na Scolairi Armored Easter Egg Hunt (and Midlands Regional Fighter Practice) was held Saturday, April 10th, at the Salvation Army Community Center in Bloomington. As in years past, fighters from across the Midlands showed up to hunt for Easter eggs, get in some good practice, and generally have a good time.
The Rules for the Hunt are simple: Eggs were hidden throughout the gym and hallway. The fighters were then allowed in and given some time to find as many eggs as possible. Once all the eggs are found, the challenge fights begin. To the victor of the fight goes one of the loser's eggs. The only restriction is that you could not take a person's last egg.
As in years past there were both a heavy armor and rapier division ("No crossing of the streams!!!" says The Most Honorable Chen-tzu.), with winners announced in each division. One set of winners was the fighter & fencers with the eggs. The other set of winners were the holders of The Lucky Egg (i.e. with a special token in it).
The heavy armored division champions were Sgt. Aileen Fitzwilliam, with 29 eggs, and Lord Vargas, who ended up with the lucky egg.
The rapier champions were Lady Delphinae Wolfe (39 eggs) and Lord Alexander de Seton (lucky egg).
Following the hunt there was MELEE PRACTICE, as the Midlands fighters prepared for the the war season.
