When one thinks back on Ansteorran rapier history, premiere Kingdom Rapier
events such as Queen's Champion, To Save a Queen, Roses, Squire's & Cadet's
Invitational, and Guardian of the Gauntlet spring to mind. Join Her Royal
Majesty Deanna, the Past Guardians, and the White Scarves at.


Guardian of the Gauntlet XIII (and Guardian of the Glove III) on April
13-15, 2007



If you fight rapier, regardless of your level of experience, there is only
one place for you to be on this particular spring weekend: Guardian of the
Gauntlet XIII. The event will be held on the grounds of lovely Camp Camwood,
located just northwest of Houston, where the camping is guaranteed, the list
fields are spacious, the shade is plentiful, the camaraderie is assured, and
the weather is perfect. But, if in the most rare of circumstances, it
sprinkles, there is a HUGE permanent covered pavilion that can hold 4 list
fields and 200+ people, so the event is guaranteed, regardless of weather.
In addition, as a special treat after Feast and Court, there will be a Hafla
& Firespinning by Sir Corwin and crew.  Fighting, Feast, Fire, and
Fellowship. What more can one ask for?


Tournament Format:  Triple elimination, wounds retained.  Each round is a
minimum of one Duel. Specifics:  Every entrant to the Lyst receives two
challenge coins. If you are killed or yield, you must give up one of the
coins in order to fight in the next round. When you use a coin, all wounds
are cleared. Once you use both coins, the Tournament is over for you. So,
technically, you could use up both coins in the first round against a single
opponent, although this is not recommended.  Coins can be used only after a
bout ends in a yield or death.  


Approach this list as you would Queen's Champion. It will still be your
skill with the blade and your commitment to Honor that will carry the day
and add your name to the illustrious list of the Guardians of the Gauntlet:
Tivar, Simonn, Conor, Ericus, Aleric, Eule, Durmast, Sebastian, Aeron, Shea,
Brendan, Pieter, and Modius.


The sumptuous four-course feast will be crafted by Dame Clara von Ulm,
cooking Laurel par excellence, so get your reservations in early through
ACCEPS (limited to the first 100). First Course: Sausage and Mustard, Hearty
Stew in Bread Bowls. Second Course: Herb Crusted Pork Loin, Frumenty,
Braised Spring Greens. Third Course: Lombard Chicken Pastries, Spring
Vegetables, Cheese. Dessert Course: Sugar plate, Quince Candy, Candied
Orange Peel, Comfits.


Note: To all Youth Rapier fighters, the Guardian of the Glove list will also
be held this day and will run concurrently with the Guardian of the Gauntlet
list.  Questions? Contact: Lord Brian O'hUilliam at 281-485-6649.
