The People's Barony of Bryn Madoc invites one and all to Dreamstone Tourney 28 to be held on April 19-21, 2007 at Camp Rutledge, Hard Labor Creek State Park in Rutledge, Georgia.
FIRST TOURNAMENT — Bridesmaid Tournament. This is a single elimination tournament open only to those who have never won a tournament before. There are no weapon restrictions.
SECOND TOURNAMENT — Dreamstone Tournament. This is the traditional double-elimination tournament to determine the Defender of the Dreamstone for the next year. The current Defender is His Highness Boru. There are no weapon restrictions.
YOUTH COMBAT TOURNAMENT — This is a tournament for the youth of the Kingdom. It will be held in tandem with the Great Weapons Tourney.
THIRD TOURNAMENT — Great Weapons Tournament. This is a single-elimination tournament. Only great weapons, (two-handed weapons over 48" long), will be allowed. No spears.
FOURTH TOURNAMENT — Spear Tournament. This is a two-man team spear tournament. It will be single elimination, with both team mates being eliminated during a round.
The final rounds for all tournaments shall be the best two out of three.
Contestants for all tournaments must present themselves with a list tree shield bearing their arms. Contestants without a list tree shield must obtain one from the Baron, (and you may not like what you get). Contestants are also urged to present themselves in their heraldic best, for which a prize will be given out.
The tournaments will be followed by a Feast, a Revel, and a Bardic Circle.
