The format for this tourney will be a double elimination tourney with no weapon restrictions. We will be utilizing List shield boards. If you have a shield board, please bring it to the tourney, if you do not have one, we will have supplies on hand to create on site.

We will adding this year Toys for Tots Champions in Arts & Sciences, Bardic and Games!

The Arts and Science contest will involve one entry, in any category. Entrants will be judged on Documentation, Authenticity, Presentation, Appearance and Creativity.

The Bardic competition will involve one entry. This can be any type of bardic performance. (Bardic encompasses all performance arts from acrobatics to zither playing - it's NOT just singing!) Period pieces are not necessary, but will earn you extra points. Documentation is not necessary, but will also earn you more points. Documentation can be written or oral (more points for written). Contestants will be judged on appropriateness/periodness (period or period-like), ability, memorization, audience reaction, and familiarity with the chosen form and its history. Also, since the feast is Middle Eastern, you'll get an extra point for Middle Eastern performances.

The Games Competition will entail the entrants to play a series of period board games.

For those not competing in, we will have Period games, dancing and classes to entertain you. Please check back for a list of classes.
