SCA YARD SALE
Bring SCA-appropriate or adjacent stuff you want out of your house! Let someone else sit at the table selling it for you! It’s like an SCA consignment shop, only without the commission fee!
Rapier activities will begin at 11 am. We will have inspections and authorizations until Noon. Tournaments will be run in the following order, but will be subject to change because of their Excellencies availability for the BBM Fencing Championship.
BBM Fencing Championship
Sir Arnwulf Aethelreding is ready to step down as the Fencing Champion of Barony Beyond the Mountain. He wishes to give their Excellencies as short and fun tournament so we will have a round robin tournament to determine the next champion. Bring your best and come show their Excellencies why you should be their next champion.
Are you feeling lucky? Let the roll of the dice determine which form you will bring. This will be a one and done fight and then we will move onto the next pairing. The tournament will be a double elimination tournament with opponents also being chosen at random, you may have to fight the same person more than once.
Short but Deadly
It’s time to get up close and personal with your fellow combatants. Max rapier length is 32″ single sword. If you don’t have a sword that is that short, you may substitute for a single dagger. This will be a double elimination tournament.
Bear Pit Tournament
This will be a bring your best endurance test. How long can you hold the pit? There will be no max length of matches for keeping the pit. If you can keep it, you earned it. Wounds retained. This will be a 45 minute long tournament.
Fortunes of War
If the heavy list is your preference, we have a novel tournament planned for the day–the Fortunes of War! As the season of war looms ahead, equipment fails, servants neglect their duties, and the gods may decide to have some fun. Will their attention be baleful or weal? As the combatants get ready to enter the list they will pick a fortune cookie to find out.
