Bards of the Summits! 
This is a fantastic opportunity to not only challenge your bardic skill and receive valuable feedback but to earn the opportunity to serve the Summits through song or performance. The Bard of the Summits bears the responsibility to encourage and teach the bardic arts throughout the Summits, and to represent the bards and other artists of the Summits to the Kingdom. 

You must prepare two contrasting pieces (Can be contrast in style, period, language, medium, subject matter etc.). SCA period pieces, or topically SCA pieces (such as original compositions etc.) encouraged. This can include songs, stories, poetry, instrumental music, theater etc. 

A letter of Intent is due to Their Highnesses and myself by the weekend before the events (before midnight Sept. 15th). (, blaze2242 at gmail dot com). In your letter of intent please include your name, branch, membership number and expiration date, as well as the names/categories/types/period/style/origin etc. of what you will be performing. Any other relevant information can also be included as you see fit. The sooner you submit your letter of intent, the better.  

You must submit your documentation for each piece by midnight Sept. 15th.  It is acceptable for changes and additions to be made to the submitted documentation before the competition, however the judges will be reading your documentation ahead of time to familiarize themselves with your research and pieces, so the more complete it is, the better. If you are new to documentation, please email me and I can provide you with answers to questions, as well as examples of bardic documentation. Please make sure your documentation includes a bibliography. 

A copy of your written documentation must also be submitted at the time of the competition. If possible, provide three copies so each judge can have one. 




As posted by Their Highnesses:

"To clarify my earlier missive. To enter Fall Coronet Tournament you will need to send me an e mail by Briaroak Bash, telling of your intent and for whose honor you will be fighting for. Then you will need to submit, either by hand at Harvest/ Sport of Kings or by post marked no later than the 16 day of August AS XLVIII, a formal, fancy, illuminated, carved, (please no foods) or sewn (let your persona dictate) Letter of Intent. Those letters will be carried by Her Highness to September Crown. We will have a meet n greet social Friday Night before the Fall Coronet Tourney in which We will talk to each couple individually. You will need on the day of the Tournament, Your consort at your side, a Shield for use on the shield board, your fighter card, your membership card, your consorts membership card, and banners (if you have them) that add to the festive atmosphere of the List. List conventions will be bring your best, until the finals, which will be announced later. A thirty one inch round and a twenty two by twenty eight inch long heater will be the Shield standards. E mail at Summits-Prince [at] I hope to see many around at upcoming events."



This tourney will be a best two out of three rounds and will be a prize tourney for youth combatants in full YAC armor using combat weapons. There will be a prize for the winner of the tourney, as well as the parents of the winning combatant for helping to create the armor and assisting their child. Standards of weapons and armor construction will apply, limited to current YAC ages of 6-17. Tourney will be divided by age, so there will be 3 winners. (one for each age category)

All participants in the standard YAC tourney will be presented to the Prince and Princess and process with their parents to be presented to them, just like the adults fighting in Coronet. The tourney will happen at a time suitable to Their Highnesses (banners and things like that are not required, but children can make them, even cardboard signs with their names if they wish) Children are not expected to process with their armor on, but Parents are required to walk with their children.
The YAC tourney is open to all children who meet the minimum YAC qualifications (aged 6-17, full legal armor, legal weapons, parents in attendance and present).
Parents of combatants must be at the lists at all times. Children participating in the tourney, must salute their parents, their honorable opponent, the Crowns of the Summits and anyone else who inspires them to fight that day. All armor and weapons will be inspected by a Senior YAC Marshal. If it’s not ok’d it can’t be used. (if the parents or legal guardian of the child wins coronet, waivers must be signed for another adult to be present due to what happens immediately after coronet)
Weapons for the tourney for all ages can be sword and shield; sword and dagger; double sword. Griffins and Dragons can use two handed great swords. (No one can use pole weapons, maces or axes (or anything else not specifically listed above)
Please note, weapons for the Lion Division (age 6-9) are to be constructed as practice weapons-3/4" pex pipe wrapped in pipe insulation with strapping tape and duct tape, Other divisions are 3/4" Rattan.
If you need help with armor requirements, or information on how to build armor or weapons please contact Lady Duvessa of Movilla Summits Youth Armored Combat Officer at

For questions about the event, contact the event stewart, HL Jennet MacLachlan of Loch Fyne.


There will be a full YORK round run for the archery portion of this event. This will not be for competition but for official scoring. 


We will be running a prize tourney royal round for thrown weapons. Just like archery these rounds are recorded and throwers get ranked for their scores. However, if there are too many participants then we can modify the royal round to make the tournament shorter. A royal round in thrown weapons is 20 throws each of the axe, knife, and spear. To shorten the tourney we would merely change it to 5 throws each.



This tournament will be a basic round robin, hold the field. This means in essence each fighter takes a turn holding the field against everyone else. Each fighter ends up fighting every other fighter twice. There will also be a cut and thrust tourney, details of which will follow later. Come and enjoy the challenges of rapier fighting.
