Dragon’s Mist Boar’s Head Tournament and Feast

Sponsoring Group:  Barony of Dragon’s Mist

Date:  September 21, 2019

Time:  9:00am – 8:00pm

Location:  St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, 11265 SW Cabot St, Beaverton, OR 97005-2219

Welcome the first day of autumn with Dragon’s Mist’s Boar’s Head event.  This year the event will celebrate the Splendor of Dragon’s Mist, as well as hold the A&S and Youth Championships.  To entertain and educate the populace, we will have fascinating and engaging classes, feature assorted marshal activities, play host to some of the best merchants in the area, as well as hold some truly magnificent competitions!  

PARKING:  PLEASE NOTE PARKING WILL BE AT A PREMIUM ON THIS SITE AS CONSTRUCTION HAPPENS AT THE SCHOOL NEXT DOOR.  CARPOOLING IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Competitions:

Arts and Sciences – Participants are required to submit a documented entry and prepare a 20 minute presentation on their entry, to be followed by a 10 minute question and answer session. Our current champion has asked that his successor also be an able teacher, so this year participants are asked to prepare a technique (preferably different from the documented entry) to instruct the judges in. This portion of the competition will last approximately 15 minutes.

Please send questions and letters of intent to Arts and Sciences Champion HL Ignatius Rieger von Wolfratshausen via email: brandonhawes@gmail.com and Baroness Ana at dragonsmist.baroness@antir.org.  Letters must be received by September 1, 2019.

Youth – The current Champions, Moira inghean Eoghain (Senior division) and Qing Fong (Junior division), have agreed to the format, which has been approved by Their Excellencies. Competitors will be given a booklet of activities. Upon completion of each activity, the competitor will receive a stamp in their booklet. The competitor in each division with the most stamps will become the Barony’s next Youth Champions (the tie breaker will be explained below). Each activity is completely voluntary and none are required. However, since the competition is for the most stamps, more activities are encouraged.

Here is the list of activities and their descriptions:

  • Letter of Intent: this can be done before the event and presented to Their Excellencies at opening court. Also, the text of the Letter should be emailed to Baroness Ana at dragonsmist.baroness@antir.org
  • Create a new and unique device: this can be done before the event and with adult assistance, preferably, using the device registration form available on the AnTir Heraldry website. Blazonry is not required, but highly encouraged. (If the child already has a registered device, the entry must be different)
  • Dragon in Any Medium: this is a long standing tradition for Dragon’s Mist. Using any type of materials, create a piece of “art” that represents, in some way, a Dragon. This can be done before the event and should only include adult assistance where safety is a concern. The Dragon in Any Medium will be the only judged activity and will be scored by populace using stones (per tradition). That scoring will be used as a tie breaker in the event that it is needed.
  • Scribal Painting: paint a piece of marginalia that will be provided on site.
  • Play Games: at least one of a variety of games, which may include Senet, the Royal Game of Ur, Hnefetafl, Chess, Checkers, and/or others.

Youth of Dragon’s Mist, this is your chance to show the Barony what you can do!

Reminder to adults, per SCA rules, the responsible adult (parent, legal guardian, adult with appropriate paperwork) must be within sight and sound of the youth at all times. Especially with the safety requirements on the Thrown Weapons and Archery ranges, it would be best if you could accompany your youth as they compete for this, the Barony’s most important Championship.

Questions about the contest can be sent to contests and championships sub-autocrat Lady Dangereuse de Périgueux via email: dangereusedeperigueux@gmail.com.

All Championship Contestants Must Be Blue-Card Members of the SCA.

“The Splendor of Dragon’s Mist” – For those who are interested in taking part in a low-stress A&S match, or just want to display your current projects, we are offering the “Splendor of Dragon’s Mist” A&S Competition! This is a multi-format competition:

  • Static Displays – Bring your favorite project(s), in whatever state of completion, to show to the DM populace! Documentation is nice, but not required. We will have bowls set out for the populace to leave tokens of esteem. The one with the most tokens will be considered the Populace Favorite!
  • Culinary Arts – Set forth your tastiest dishes for the populace to sample. Oktoberfest-themed fare is encouraged (mustards, pickled vegetables, etc.), but not required. Serve your favorite recipe! We will have bowls set out for the populace to leave tokens of esteem. The one with the most tokens will be considered the Populace Favorite!
  • Brewing – Brewers of An Tir, come forth! We are inviting you to compete in the following categories: Beer, Dry Mead, Sweet Mead, and Cordials/Miscelleny. Please note: These offerings will not be available to the general public to consume. We will have a panel consisting of our Right Noble Seneschal, Coronets, Minister of the Arts & Sciences, and Baronial Marshal (in case a brawl breaks out!) to judge which delectable elixir is the best in the land!
  • Bardic – Strong, sweet, and sultry voices of An Tir, we call upon you to lend your melodious tones to our humble event. Set in the Nave, where the acoustics are best, we will thrill to performances of song and storytelling. Judged by a panel, only one will be chosen fairest in the land!
If you have questions about the “Splendor of Dragon’s Mist” competitions, please contact our contests and championships sub-autocrat Lady Dangereuse de Périgueux via email: dangereusedeperigueux(at)gmail(dot)com.

Tournament Information

“Fight The Dark” Multi-Discipline Team Tourney to Support the Veterans 

The Barony of Dragon’s Mist is hosting a Multi-Discipline Team Tourney to support the Veterans Suicide Awareness Project.  Squads of four (one heavy, one rapier, one archer, and one thrown weapon) will register at Lists with their team name and members.  We are asking for a $5 donation for each participant to enter.  Each team’s mission will be to gain points through marshal prowess.  Support each other and help each other attain excellence because you are literally fighting against Veterans Suicide.  As you rack up wins, each team will report to Lists with the points they have achieved – Archery points will be scored per the Tavern Games competition outlined below; Heavies and Rapier will receive 5 points for each win; Thrown Weapons will score points according to their competition.  The team with the most points will win a special group prize at Closing Court, as well as the glory of having beaten back the forces of darkness and despair.

Members of the populace are welcome to indicate their personal favorite fighter or team by donating any amount in their name at Lists.  The team that receives the most popular acclaim in this fashion will be named People’s Choice, and will also receive a group prize at Closing Court.

Archery

Youth Archery: Harvest Feast
Can you hunt down a harvest feast?  Shoot at colorfully drawn fruits and gourds to score points in this competition at 10 yards. The Barony will provide different arrows for you to shoot with. 
 
Adult Archery: Tavern Games
Test your luck, your skill, and your ability to add numbers as we try to shoot our way up to 21 points… but don’t go over!  This is a 10 yard shoot with small targets, and Barony-provided grab bag arrows to provide an additional wrinkle.
