Fighting from days of yore

TONASKET – Medieval sword fights in History Park?

Sort of, anyway.

The Dregate Fighters, a.k.a. Fighters of Okanogan County, gather Wednesdays at the park in Tonasket, usually around 5:00 p.m., to learn and practice fighting techniques with makeshift swords, helmets and shields. Participants also come in from other parts of the county, as well as hitting the road for tournaments and other events.
