HMBIA Marshals Roxana E. Ruiz de Miauro and Eduardo Carlos Miauro were working there and they have great impressions after the tournament.
 
Roxana E. Ruiz de Miauro:
“This was the first official HMB tournament in Mendoza. The tournament began on Saturday with the check of weapons and shields. We had the support of the Knight Marshal in Historicity, Sergey Bogonenko, who helped us with controversial weapons. It was a great support. Fights were intense. There were some minor injuries. I am very happy because during the tournament everyone had a feeling of camaraderie and showed the Fair Play”.
 

Also Roxana mentioned that there were trainee marshals on the event. She told that they did a good job, accepting the corrections and putting a lot of desire to learn. Argentinian marshal is sure that they will become good Marshals with such an enthusiasm and training.

There were fighters who traveled by car without sleeping, others with problems at customs. All that effort was worth it, there were fighters who fought in duels for the first time, others in buhurt. It was a great achievement for all of them.
 

This event was interesting for all guests as everyone had an opportunity to find something interesting – medieval fair, snacks or live music.

Everyone is satisfied with the III Torneo de HMB en Mendoza – every participant, guest or member of the org team. So let’s hope that next year this tournament will be much more wide scale and all plans of organizers will come true! Even the most ambitious.
