Points North 2020: Longsword


Points North is Ottawa Swordplay's annual open tournament and workshops event, held on the first weekend in August in Ottawa since 2017.

The 2020 tournament was planned for August 1st and 2nd. As of June 1st we have made the decision to postpone the event, given the current restrictions on gatherings in Ontario and the very slow steps towards broader reopening. We plan to reschedule for a later date, once we are sure we can safely offer a competition.

For 2020, we planned to offer a steel longsword tournament, an immortals (age 50+) steel longsword tournament, and three great workshops. We hope to cross swords with you again soon!

Schedule

Points North runs across two days, Saturday August 1 and Sunday August 2. All pool matches will run on Saturday, and all elimination matches run on Sunday. Every combatant is guaranteed 4 matches. Full schedule coming soon!
