[ATL] Storvik Annual Novice Tourney

The Barony of Storvik cordially invites you to a joint event, featuring a full weekend of martial and artistic activities. Please join us in a celebration of friendship and camaraderie as this event will include the best of both baronies' traditional events.

Martial Activities: A Novice Tournament will be run by His Excellency Sean Dalamara. This tournament will be exclusively for combatants who have been authorized in any form of heavy combat for less than one year. We encourage all entrants to preregister and send us an electronic version of their heraldry, so we can make personalized banners to display around the field. If an entrant does not have heraldry, we will provide an alternate type of banner with the
entrant's name, but only for preregistered fighters. There will also be an Unbelt Tournament for more experienced but unbelted fighters.

Rapier Combat: Lord Stephen Bridewell, Provost of the Academie d'Espee, will be running a tournament exclusively for novice rapier fighters who have been authorized for less than one year. This will be followed by a team tournament.  Novices will be paired with experienced fighters, and they will fight as a team for honor, glory, and valuable experience!

Silent Auction: Lady Beatrix Von Leipzig will be holding a silent
auction to raise money for the Barony of Storvik

Arts and Sciences: There are a number of different Arts & Sciences competitions and exhibitions planned for the day.

Novice: This competition is open to anyone who has been practicing an art for one year or less. Any item is welcome and documentation is optional, but is encouraged. True novices only please. 

Brewing:
Baronial Brewer and Novice competitions. Categories include Mead/Wine, Beer, Cordials, and Non-Alcoholics. Please contact Lady Sorcha Prechan for more details.
