On June 15-17, 2012, the Stronghold of Hellsgate will be holding it's Premier Champion's event, Commander's Crucible. The site is Camp Mabry in Austin, TX.
We will be choosing our Premier Champions in Chivalric, Rapier and A&S.
Formats will be determined on the day of the tournament. As of right now, if there are enough entrants to the Chivalric and Rapier lists, the Commander's will be determined by melee. The intent is to run either a standard Ansteorran tourney or Swiss Five (on both fields), with the top fighters advancing as melee commanders for the final rounds.
This is a camping event, although, it is pretty much a primitive site. We have running water on site, and electricity by the pavilion.
Site fee is $10. For those who are 17 and younger, there will be no site fee. $5 non-member surcharge still applies.
There will also be a bardic circle hosted by Lord Goldweard Saturday evening.
I know that there will be some of you traveling to Lillies during this time, and you will be sorely missed.
