Hail Armoured Fighters of Caid!

We are excited to announce the Royal Army of Caid Army Practice on December 14th! This date is the most reasonable date within a 90 day window and before the end of 2014. It will take place at the Highlands War Site, Schmidt Park , 13576 Mustang Road , Victorville , CA 92395. This site is centrally located and allows almost everyone about the same 3 hour commute to the site. We would like to get representation from as many Warbands and Fighting Units within the Kingdom as possible. Please make an effort and beat the drum to rally the troops and have as many fighters from every barony, shire, household and warband to attend!

There has been a lot of discussion and interest on the status of the Caid Army in the wake of GWW. This is a great chance for folks to show up, armor up and put words into action.

This practice will go no later than 5:00 PM.

We will run through a series of drills including :

  • Formations & Movements
  • Unit Formations
  • Universal Army / Brigade Commands
  • Marching, Obliques, Wheels, Refuses (Every unit should know how to anchor a side and refuse.)
  • Bridge Battles – Commands
  • Shieldwall Advance into Fire
  • How to Give Ground
  • Skirmish Order
  • Combine multiple spears to form a super spear unit
  • Archery Integration – How to Deal with multiple archers

We will break into two sides and do some hard fighting. The format will be similar to Potrero War--4-5 quick battles with no rest, then a 5 min break. We shall shoot for at least 20 battles.

Bring a chair so we can meet and discuss reorganization and leadership, and the following issues:

  • Army Reorganization:
    • Ritter Augustine von Freiburg passes on Captain-General Regalia
    • Command Roles – Captain General & Staff
    • Choosing Leaders – Election/Poll of the Unit Leaders/Who Wants To Participate
    • Elections are not done anymore, return to them to just continue with impromptu poll of different units.
    • Restructure – Old System or New Reorganization
  • Break Army into South, Central and Northern Groups
  • Army Logistics:
    • Contact List – Commanders & their 2nds
    • New Army Favors – 4 Caidan Crescents
    • Banners
  • Army Recruitment:
    • How

Site: Highlands War Location - Schmidt Park, 13576 Mustang Road, Victorville, CA 92395.

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you there!
