New Amsterdam HEMA Open 2019
October 26 at 08:00 - 18:00
This one day event will be NYHFA NYC’s inaugural Longpoint League Aevent!
The tournament will be a ONE DAY event at Queens College in Queens which will run from 8 a.m. to approximately 6 p.m. and will showcase Premier, Open and Rookie pools.
Slots will be limited and this event is part of the Longpoint League finals-so make sure you stay alert on updates for when registration goes live!
Come. Fight. Enjoy.
Here are some important points to keep in mind when signing up for this tournament:
1. Ushering the mandate for Longpoint League (LHFL) tournaments in 2020, we aim to keep this tournament cheap, short, and accessible to all. Here is how we are making this more compact for your convenience:
a. this event will take place on Saturday only. No one needs to take a day off from work/school/non-HEMA life.
b. We will focus solely on longsword, and no alternate weapon tournaments are on the agenda.
c. There is no dinner or party planned for the end of the tournament, but you’ll definitely find like-minded HEMAists to party with post-tournament, if you so wish. Also, this is New York City!
d. We will not be offering any classes, but please consider watching the fights in higher tiers. You can learn a lot from studying others.e. While we will definitely break for lunch, we are not providing any catering at the venue. There will be many choices available in the vicinity. Seamless is your friend!
f. You do not need to stay the night. NYC is transportation hub. Getting into and out of the city in a day should be easy for most.
g. We do not aim to reinvent the wheel with our proprietary smart rules. You will need to learn nothing new: you will be fighting under Longpoint Rules. Let’s not complicate life.
2. While this event is the wrap-up for the 2019 Longpoint League year but also a stand-alone event. You don’t need to have participated in other League events to register for this one.
3. There will be awards and prizes for the winners of the day as well as for the 2019 overall Best Competitors in the League, known as the “Top Eight”.
4. Every registrant will receive a custom event patch. Collect enough patches and you can make you own HEMA shirt!
5. We will run this efficiently and smoothly. Elimination is simple: you fight at your skill level, with no obscure eliminating factors. If you win more than others, you progress. If you don’t you’re eliminated.
