Note: This is the order the battles will be fought. Combat archery will be allowed in all battles EXCEPT the activity field battle. A Combat Archery only scenario will be running on the main fighting field at this time. Each scenario will be run enough times to decide a definite winner or as many times as the combatants wish. This is a new site, a new field and some new combat areas. Be careful out there.

Who Stole the Hearts?
10:00 am - Main Fighting Field
Herald, read the accusation!’ said the King.
On this the White Rabbit blew three blasts on the trumpet, and then unrolled the parchment scroll, and read as follows:–
`The Queen of Hearts, she made some tarts,
All on a summer day:
The Knave of Hearts, he stole those tarts,
And took them quite away!’
`Consider your verdict,’ the King said to the jury.
`Not yet, not yet!’ the Rabbit hastily interrupted. `There’s a great deal to come before that!’
It has come to a great battle to decide the fate of the poor Knave. Both side taking the field in a epic battle where the winner decides the knaves fate. Does he live or is it “OFF with his head. This is a basic no res field battle.
Pig and Pepper
11:00 am - Main Fighting Field
Alice: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from
The Cheshire Cat: “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to."
Alice: “I don’t much care where."
The Cheshire Cat: “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.
This will be a Castle battle. There will be 3 points of egress. There is a bridge crosses the moat to the castle gate. A narrow footpath crosses the moat to a castle door and there is a shallow in the moat that can be forded by those nobility on horses or waded across by the common man.
This will be a timed battle with a single resurrection or the attacker. No resurrections for the defender. Victory is decided by defeating all the attacking forces or by entering into the castle and destroying the throne (kicking over and scattering the 4 pool noodles).
The Queen's Croquet-Ground
1:00 pm - Main Fighting Field
A large rose-tree stood near the entrance of the garden: the roses growing on it were white, but there were three gardeners at it, busily painting them red. Alice thought this a very curious thing, and she went nearer to watch them, and just as she came up to them she heard one of them say, `Look out now, Five! Don't go splashing paint over me like that!'
`I couldn't help it,' said Five, in a sulky tone; `Seven jogged my elbow.'
On which Seven looked up and said, `That's right, Five! Always lay the blame on others!'
`You'd better not talk!' said Five. `I heard the Queen say only yesterday you
deserved to be beheaded!'
`What for?' said the one who had spoken first.
`That's none of your business, Two!' said Seven.
`Yes, it is his business!' said Five, `and I'll tell him--it was for bringing the cook tulip-roots instead of onions.'
Seven flung down his brush, and had just begun `Well, of all the unjust things--' when his eye chanced to fall upon Alice, as she stood watching them, and he checked himself suddenly: the others looked round also, and all of them bowed low.
Today we play Croquet. This will be a control point battle. Each team will have a control point on their end
of the Field. This is a croquet wicket with a flamingo inside. Stand your color flamingo up inside the wicket you control that point. A wicket is contested when the enemy is in 15 feet and may
not be changed.
This is a timed unlimited resurrection battle. Fight time is 10:30 for each battle. The releases from the resurrections points will be staggered one teams point will be released on the :30 of every minute and the other side will be released on the 1:00 mark . This should give an ebb and flow to this battle. Victory conditions is hold the most control points at the end of the battle. OR kill all of your opponents before their res point is released.

Chapter I: Down the Rabbit Hole
2:00 pm - Activity Field
Well!’ thought Alice to herself, `after such a fall as this, I shall think
nothing of tumbling down stairs! How brave they’ll all think me at home! Why, I wouldn’t say anything about it, even if I fell off the top of the house!’ (Which was very likely
Down, down, down. Would the fall NEVER come to an end! `I wonder how many miles I’ve fallen by this time?’ she said aloud. `I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth.
This is battle on pitched hill with a few trees. This is a no resurrection battle. Each side will get a chance to hold the high ground. Victory condition is elimination of the other side.

We're All Mad Here
2:00 pm – Main Fighting Field
“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
Combat Archery ONLY Capture the Flag battle scenario. 1st battle will be no res, 2nd battle, switch sides, and there will be one res, 3rd battle will be "shoot till you're empty". The flags will be flamingos that Andy will have on the heavy field.
The Pool of Tears
3:00 pm - Main Fighting Field
“I wish I hadn’t cried so much!” said Alice, as she swam about, trying to find her way out. “I shall be punished for it now, I suppose, by being drowned in my own tears! That will be a queer thing, to be sure! However, everything is queer to-day.”
You must cross the bridge over The Pool of Tears. This will be a wide bridge battle. One side defends the
other attacks. There is a control point past either side. If the flamingo is unseated from its perch, the other side wins.
This will be a SINGLE resurrection battle with each side using a resurrection point on their side of the field.
