Sunday October 30, Orphanage Park, Mitchell St, Millswood
Setup from 9am. Lists close 11ish, with court to commence shortly thereafter.
Greetings all, and to whom it may interest. The Baroness' Championship is coming, and we would dearly dearly dearly like for you to come for a fabulous day of biff and pageantry.
It is a condition of the venue that no spikes (i.e. tent pegs) are to be used. We are making arrangements for 24 weights for the galleries. If you need more, or if you have concerns about the arrangements, please let the steward know.
Armoured combatants from the furthest reaches of the Barony are invited to contest the field for the honour of serving her Excellency the Baroness as her champion. The next Champion will be selected by her Excellency with the help of the Ladies of the Gallery. So, fight with chivalry, fight with generosity, and exhibit your virtues upon the field. A submission to the A&S competition of the day will be considered favourably in the selection of the incoming champion.
The format is, four combatants to take the field each round, in teams of two, as selected at random by the lists officer. Each combatant who survives a round is awarded a point. The combatant with the most points at the conclusion of 45-60 minutes (according to her Excellency's pleasure and the stamina of our warriors) shall be declared the mightiest and awesomest. Fighters to bear arms of their own preference. In the event of a tie, or where the lead scorers are separated by too narrow a margin to satisfy her Excellency, the victor shall be decided by best of five rounds of viking wrestling ("safe" variant).
The populous is reminded that Oktoberfeast will be held during the previous evening. A well fed and well watered fighter is a good fighter because science, so make merry in anticipation of a glorious tournament well fought.
The A&S competition is:
- A banner (of any shape) in full size or miniature
- Italian Adornment (any time period; could adorn a person, a garment, a sword, a manuscript... use your imagination)
Members free, non-members $5. Bookings are not required.
