Dragon's Mist and Three Mountains Championship

June 17, 2017
Dragon's Mist

Washington County, OR

Autocrat: Brigitta Riegers

 

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, and dayshade.

Heavies Champions

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. sword/cloak.  Candidates must have an active Blue Card

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.  Entrants must:

1.    Have an active blue card;

2.    Email the intent to enter as stated above;

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 society.

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.

Dragon's Mist Youth Champion

[TBD]

Children who are not interested in taking part in the Youth Championship are welcome to enjoy the Shute Park playground (https://www.hillsboro-oregon.gov/home/showdocument?id=2283).

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 Bi-Baronial Championship!
