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
