winners from amongst the Chivalric and Rapier entrants will be: 3 
points to the winners of each round for the Single Elim. List.  In the 
Progressive Melee each member of a winning team will receive 3 
points each round.  Each entrant also receives 1 to 10 points for 
competing in the Bardic, A&S, Obstacle, Heraldry, and Dance
