see!  There will be two rapier tournaments – Lions Gate
Defender and Gerhard’s Riposte.  There will be the
Annual Unbelted Heavy Tournament.  Perhaps there will be
something of the A&S variety as well to round things
out.   And if that’s not enough, there will be
dancing, games, music, Pied Piper, merchants and socializing
too.  The complete details will be available online via

The Baron and Baroness
would like all competitors in the defender tourney to know
that as a part of this rank, the two victors this day will be
expected over the next year to:

  • Defend Their Excellencies and the
    Barony of Lions Gate against all who would take up arms
    against Them whenever possible;
  • When present, to join us at Our
    courts;
  • Represent the Barony when travelling
    to other branches;
  • Attend the three major local events,
    being Banquet, Baronesses and May Bardic;
  • Compete in the name of Lions Gate
    over the next year; and,
  • Swear fealty to their Excellencies or
    Lions Gate or an oath of service to the
    Barony.

The Rapier Defender’s tourney details
will be confirmed at Court.  You must be present at the
Rapier Invocation at Opening Court first thing in the morning
(see schedule) in order to compete for Lions Gate Defender of
Rapier.

Those competitors holding
champion/defender titles from other branches or planning on
competing in other branch competitions for the next year
should speak with the Baron or Baroness.

Gerhard’s
Ripos
te
Tournamen
t
We will be celebrating
in tournament the anniversary of “Gerhard’s Riposte”
(formerly known as Fibreglass Champion).  This is a
tournament for ALL Fighters authorized for less than a year
or unauthorized.  You must also have patron to recommend
and be accepted by the Master of Blades, who will be advised
by attending White Scarves.  Questions about the tourney
format can be directed to our Master of Blades, HL Warwick
Drakkar.

Continuing with a new tradition started
last year, there will also be a Chivalry prize awarded to a
rapier fighter in Dona Lasairiona inghean Uilliam na
Seoltadh’s name.

Heavy
Tournamen
t
The heavy tourney will
follow some of the Lions Gate traditions.  To enter the
lists, you must do two things:

1.        
Bring an item for the prize table
2.         Challenge
a Knight to a round (this does not count as a death for the
tourney).

Belted fighters will be included in the
tourney fighting till the quarterfinals.  If there are
enough Knights participating (and if eric space allows), we
will branch off into two separate tourneys, so that when the
day is through we will have both an unbelted and a belted
winner for the day.  There will be a prize for the
winners of these tourneys, and everyone will be able to
participate in the prize table.

Please note that
the Sergeant who excels for the day in fighting will be
awarded the Boar Spear for the next year; a tribute from Sir
Gerhard Kendal of Westmoreland.

Lists
Lists
will open immediately after Opening Court.  Heavy and
Rapier fighting is scheduled to begin at 11:00 promptly as we
only have the Alice McKay Hall until 3:00pm.  Please
pass the word to all fighters.
