King’s And Queen’s Rapier Champions: Sweet 16

East Kingdom Gazette - Sat, 2014-03-29 14:29

On this last Saturday in March, 80 of our kingdom’s fencers vied for the titles of King’s and Queen’s Champions of Fence. In rapier, the King’s Champion title is held by the winner of the tourney, and the Queen’s Champion is chosen by Her Majesty, for courtesy and valor throughout the tourney.

The format for today’s tourney can be found in detail on the rapier announcements site.

The first round was fought in the following manner: 2 fencing bouts per pairing. The first bout fought using offensive weapons forms (Two rapiers, 2 handed rapier, rapier and dagger) and the second bout fought using defensive weapons forms (Rapier and buckler, Rapier and cloak, or single rapier with off hand if it is the only authorized form) Double kills were refought once, with a second double kill deemed a death for both combatants. The fights were scored using the following points system:

  • 4 points for winning both bouts
  • 3 points for winning offensive form bout only
  • 2 points for winning defensive form bout only
  • 0 points for losing both bouts

The top 16 fencers advanced to a double elimination tourney using a similar format, with best out of three instead of 2. The third bout was single rapier only. Each pairing could choose which order to fight the three forms in.

Advancing to the sweet sixteen were, in order of first fight:

Join the Barony of Carolingia (northeastern Massachusetts) for a day full of activities for all ages on May 3rd. Spend the day trying out all the Society has to offer for our younger members, from youth combat to classes on all manners of arts and sciences, from dancing and music to thrown weapons. There will be equestrian activities, youth fencing, archery, and much more.

Come meet other parents with children around your child’s age with parent and child meet and greets, bring the garb your children have outgrown to swap with other parents, and enjoy a sumptious dayboard of kid-friendly treats prepared by Ulf and Justinius, under the supervision of Fergus Redmeade.

Teens and Tweens! Come learn to make cheese, help out in the kitchen, or work gate. Have a skill you know how to do? Come teach it to younger kids. Bring the Arts and Sciences project you are working on to display, learn a new skill in one of our classes or pick up a new martial art.

If you would like to teach a class, please contact Baroness Leonete. You do not need a background check or specific experience teaching children in order to teach, and we are happy to help you adapt your class for the younger set. We are especially looking for those under 18 willing to teach.
