Get David To The International Medieval Combat Tournament

Project 2015-02-14 11:41:45 +1300

I am 36 years old, farming just out of Taupo. With my wife and 4 children I have been doing medieval reenacting for about 6 years. I started with the Sable Hart in Taupo. For the last year I have been training for full contact combat with the Steel Thorns team based in New Plymouth. Full contact combat requires strong steel armour as competitors hit each other full force with steel weapons.

My favourite weapons are mace and shield for the team fights, and longsword for the 1v1.

I recently competed in the Pacific Cup in Wellington, where I competed against fighters from all over New Zealand. My team, the Steel Thorns, won the group melee and I personally won the individual longsword tournament. Now I get the chance to represent New Zealand at the world champs.

I am looking for help in getting to international medieval combat tournaments in Poland and the Czech Republic in May this year. I am going as a member of team New Zealand. The trip costs $3000 for flights, and approximately $2000 for food and accomodation.
