There will be an A&S competition coordinated by Lady Ciana
In an effort to combine aspects of our society we have decided to hold a A&S competition that will involve A&S and rapier - one does not have to enter as a duo but it is strongly recommended to reach out and promote interactions with these two groups

As with the tournaments this is an inspiration based competition
Theme of Inspiration to be interpreted by the contestant

Each person will make a 5-10 minute presentation on their project.
Once each person has presented they will be available at their individual tables/spaces for questions.
Each person who shows up to these presentations will get a bead with which to vote
Prizes are awarded based on vote totals

There will be an additional prize to the RAPIER A&S Duo who score best COMBINED in their disciplines.

To Enter
One page or less of documentation needs to cover what where why and how
5-10 minute presentation based on your piece( the theme being inspiration)

To enter in combination with a rapier fighter
The A&S person must come to the list field and make a heraldic introduction of the rapier fighter including their name, lineage and who they are fighting for. The A&S person can but does not have to be the rapier fighters inspiration for the day.

The A&S person should also be at the rapier field for the majority of the tournament cheering their fighter on.

The rapier fighter must come to both A&S presentation slots and introduce the A&S person, their lineage and what the project is

Rapier fighter placement in the tournament will get them a certain number of points

A&S participants will similarly gain points based on their placement of combined populace and peerage votes.

Combination of these points will determine the winner of the Pairs contest

Hope to see you all there!
