UPDATE 3/12/2020: CANCELED
After much deliberation regarding the potential impact of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel St. Paddy’s Day Bloodbath, March 14, 2020.
Join your fellow Atlantians at the Barony of Ponte Alto's Annual St. Paddy's Day Bloodbath where the fighting is fierce and the prepackaged snacks will be free.
We present a day that will be
sure to satisfy even the most bloodthirsty
fighter. This event is a fighter's dream,
featuring our usual bearpit tourney and as
many pickups as you can stomach.
Remember, this is for both rapier and heavy
Please note: This is traditionally a *cold*
event, so please plan accordingly.
If you intend to bring day shades, they must be pop-ups.

|Fighting:||Heavy / Rapier / possibly youth fighting: We will be choosing the Baronial Champions for Heavy and Rapier|
Event MIC: Lord Ronan Mac Imair
Rapier MIC: Master Cailin Blackwood
Armored MIC: Lady Allison Oram
MOL: Kunigunde von Darmstadt
|A&S: Choosing the Baronial Champion for A&S and Bardic.|
|Those aspiring to be the Bardic Baronial Champion will perform before the Noyon and Baroness during the Lunch break|
|The Irish are known for many things, and Ireland for many more, but what does Ireland mean to you? Our theme for those who aspire to become our Barony's new A&S Champion is "Ireland", a topic as open as Ireland is green. Come with your all your arts to show us a side of Ireland that appeals to you, and may the blessings of Saint Patrick be upon your work!|
This is the judging form we'll be using for your entries, though the final winner will be chosen by Their Excellencies.

10:00 AM Inspections & Authorizations
11:00 AM Modified Bear Pit/Valhalla Melee- A modified free-for-all melee where you can continue to resurrect so long as you have ‘blood’ gems left in your bucket. You loose gems for dying and gain gems for killing others. Alliances and betrayals are all fair game. The final two will enter sudden death.
11:45 AM Blacksword Tournament A single elimination, bring-your-best tournament where the results are tracked across many events and the resulting scores used by the Warlord to help select Champions for Pennsic! Do your best.
12:30 PM Included Lunch
1:00 PM Modified Capture the Flag A capture the flag melee where, if your team is in control, you may not resurrect upon death. You must wait for the opposing team to take the flag back. You may resurrect infinitely if your team is not in control of the flag. Time checks will occur to determine the winning team.
2:00 PM Pick ups/Melee training by Northern Region Commander
