Baronial YAC Champions Tournament

The Barony of Glymm Mere is renowned throughout the known world for the skilled and honorable fighters we produce. In the spirit of continuing this tradition with the next generation of fighters, Baron Dunstan M’Lolane and Baroness Aelisia of Cambrewell have put out the call to all the reaches of the Barony for all young fighters, from the ages of 6 to 17, to come and compete to become the Youth Armored Combat Champion of Glymm Mere, and to stand with our Baron and Baroness as a shining example of the skill, chivalry, and honor that makes our Barony great.

 There are three age groups the young fighters will be competing in: The Lions ages 6 to 9; The Griffons ages 10 to 12; and The Dragons ages 13 to 17. Each age group will have it’s own winner, there will also be an over all tournament winner, and Championship winner as well.

 Each age group will compete in a Round Robin format, depending on number of participants. The winner of each age group will advance to the Final round, which will be best 2 out of 3 format. Each age group will have a winner. Overall tournament winner will be determined by finals round. YAC Championship will be determined by the following point system.  Whoever accumulates the most points throughout the tournament will be champion.

+1 point for every win.
+1 point if you defeat an opponent one age group higher (accumulative).
+1 point for chivalrous actions in a round, only 1 point per round.
+1 point if you have at least one piece of your own gear.
+1 point if you need to borrow no more than 3 pieces of gear.
+1 point for a complete set of gear.

Baronial Brewing Champions Tournament

 MUST be brewed or vinted. (I.e. no cordials, mixed drinks, etc.)

• There will be two separate categories. Brewing and vinting. Mead and wines will compete against each other and beers will compete against each other. In the case of a tie the judges will base the final decision on total factors (I.e. difficulty, source of the recipe, etc.)

• The strength does not matter. (I.e. anything from a small beer or ginger beer to a full blown double beer or traditional mead.

• Documentation will be a HUGE plus for an entry as this is an art, a science, AND a championship.

• Taste will always be a plus, HOWEVER, if you are following a period recipe and staying true to period practice, there will be heavy allowances for that. That being said, please do not try and make the judges throw up.

• IF you are working on a project that should age much longer than the time we have before the competition we can take that into consideration as well. If you can, please do not go this direction but I, as well as anyone, knows the draw when a certain book or recipe speaks to you.

• Each entrant is limited to TWO (2) entries. This will save wear and tear on the judges’ livers as well as shorten the length of time needed to get through all entries.



Cordial Competition

Since cordials have been excluded from the Baronial Championship, there will be a separate competition for these entries.  More details will be forthcoming.


Family Activities

There will be numerous activities, competitions, and classes planned for kids of all ages.  More information to come
