“Swords on the Beach” is the 2nd Annual Pacific Northwest HEMA Gathering.
This is the primary event for Pacific Northwest HEMA Alliance member affiliates and groups in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and British Columbia, but all participants from any location everywhere are invited to register and enjoy. The basis for this event is that unlike many others, it provides full, single classes where all participants learn and practice together as a complete group and is not divided into multiple classes or workshops. In other words, all participate in one class at a time regardless of their level of expertise and experience. Another primary function of this event is that it is a specifically camping oriented venue, to help keep costs down, and Hotel accommodations are not necessarily provided and may or may not be available. This year the vent is located on the coast of Washington at Pacific Beach Resort for two days, 20-21 August. This year we will have three classes, two on Saturday and one on Sunday, followed by a “Beginner’s Tournament”.
