O'er the Mountains and through the Mists of Legend sounds the
call - "Champions! Ready thyselves!"
The Baronies of Dragon's Mist and Three Mountains announce their
Bi-Baronial Championship Event! Held under the trees at the
lush and green Shute Park, Dragon's Mist will audition for its new
Bardic Champion and search for its new Youth Champion; Three
Mountains will hunt for its new Rapier champion, and both Baronies
will contest for their new Heavies Champions! The event will
be a full day of fighting, arts, and fellowship between these two
great Baronies! And they invite you to take part!
Site opens at 9:30am. We ask that you bring your own
chairs, garbage bag to haul out your trash, lunch and beverages,
Both Baronies are in need of new Heavy Armored Champions. Those
who wish to become a Champion for either barony will process into
Morning Court with their Inspiration and declare their intent to
one barony. It will be a multi-weapon tourney. Current plans also
involve the Barons testing the mettle of the combatants before the
tourney starts. We may also have a special Barons Round.
Candidates must have an active Blue Card.
Three Mountain's Rapier Champion
Three Mountains needs a new Rapier Champion. It will be a
modified London Master's format -a test of prowess in four
formats: single sword, sword/dagger, sword/buckler.

Dragon's Mist Bardic Champion
Dragon's Mist also needs a new Bardic Champion - Intent to enter
must be sent to myself (elizabeth.cothran.bellows at gmail.com) and
Baron Finn (baron at dragonsmist.antir.sca.org) by June 1st, 2017.
1. Have an active
2. Email the intent to enter as stated
3. Submit a written letter of intent to his
Excellency during Morning Court on the day of the Champions
Tournament (If you need help writing one, let me know and I will
send some examples to help you!);
4. Be prepared to (if they win), swear
fealty as Champion to his Excellency, promote the Bardic Arts in
the Barony and the Kingdom, and run the Championship the following
year to name their successors, and
5. Enter two bardic pieces:
a. A period piece with documentation. This
can be any type of bardic art: singing, theatre, poetry, dance,
etc. If it is a performing art, it will be great. Put effort into
your piece, since this will be the main thing judged. Documentation
does not need to be long, just a summary of your findings, but the
piece must be pre-1650 (though preferably pre-1600, but I'm giving
some leeway for things like Shakespeare). Note: Traditional pieces
like "Loch Lomond" will not be accepted. This is a test of your
anachronistic abilities, since the SCA is an educational
b. A non-period but SCA appropriate piece.
This can also be any type of bardic art, as long as it is a
different one than the period piece. This doesn't mean spoken word
vs. singing, it just means don't do two songs in a row or two
poems. Documentation isn't needed, but some lyrics/words printouts
would be really appreciated. Some examples I can think of: A song
by Great Big Sea, a period-appropriate poem you wrote, a dance you
choreographed in a particular style, a traditional fairy tale whose
origins are long since forgotten.
In addition, Dragon's Mist will be hosting a Potluck Feast after
Closing Court. There will be delicious meats, breads, and
condiments for a lovely Spring picnic meal. Please bring a
cold side dish or dessert to share.
Note: There will be no way
to heat dishes at the site, unless you bring your own cooker.
After all this revelry, the site will close at 8:30pm.
Please join Dragon's Mist and Three Mountains in their
