On Friday afternoon, we shall set up the site in preparation for the Championships of Saturday. If time and weather allow, we may open up the archery ranges and Erics for some early evening activities. However, there will be no camping overnight on site. On Saturday morning the site will open at 8AM to allow for set up of the Championships. Invocation Court will begin promptly at 9:30AM, with the Championships immediately following.

At this moment the scenarios for the Championships are being refined, and could change some. But here are the current formats:

For the Armored Championship: A two hour retained wounds bear pit. The final rounds will take the top four fighters (those who scored the highest in the bear pit) and undergo a double elimination using randomly chosen weapons (weapons drawn from a lottery).

For the Rapier Championship: Fence for a number of rounds (aiming for around five, but that will depend on the number of entrants), best 2 out of 3 in each bout. If you win 2-0 you get 2 points, 2-1, 1 point. For the Final 2 (or if enough participants, final 4 will single elimination down to top 2) will do a best out of 9 (first to five wins) with a London Masters twist. The number of deaths you have will determine your offhand as it rotates from single sword to sword and dagger and finally out of the tournament (0 deaths- single sword; 1 death - cloak; 2 deaths - baton; 3 deaths - buckler; 4 deaths - dagger).

For the Archery Championship: The first elimination round will be a half IKAC (Inter Kingdom Archery Competition).  This will consist of 6 arrows from 40 yards untimed followed by a speed round of 30 seconds. As many arrows as can be loosed. The same at 30 and 20 yards.  Half the archers will go on the semi-finals. The semi-finals will be a Pigeon Shoot. A clay pigeon will be placed in the middle of the hay bales.  Each archer will be allowed 6 arrows to break the pigeon.  Five points for breaking the pigeon and one point for each arrow left in the quiver. Top 3 high scores go to the finals. The finals will be an assassin shoot. The Baron and Baroness will be seated just behind the shooting line as if in court. The archer will be standing behind them as if in court. The current Champion will shout 'assassin' and the archer will run around in front of the coronets to defend them.  The target will be a picture of an assassin next to a member of the populace. Scoring will be one point for hitting the assassin and one point off for hitting the populace. The archer will have 45 seconds. One point off for each arrow still in the quiver. The archer will not be allowed to draw an arrow from the quiver till he crosses the shooting line for safety.

For the Thrown Weapons Championship: Performance of a number of throws per person at a range of different hanging targets (number of throws to be determined on how many are going out for the Championship). The current range of objects consisting of the standard log, a typical thrown round and an oddly shaped round.

If you have any questions on the Championships and their formats, please let us know and we'll put you in touch with the right person / people.

At 4PM (or following the completion of the Championships) we shall hold Court to invest the Champions determined. At 5PM we will have a pot-luck / picnic feast. Please bring something to share. The Barony will provide a main dish (a meat like object).
