Your Gracious Grace,

You mentioned the date of December 15.  The Barony of Bjornsborg is holding the Academy of the Sword that very weekend.  This is to be the heavy weapons version of Academy of the Rapier.  Unless you were thinking of the Bjornsborg event, it is with a heavy heart that many Bjornsborgers will be unable to attend.  

Where ever, and when ever the tournament is, I wish you much luck.  And, if I can, I would love to participate.

Greetings everyone.

It is with a sad and heavy heart that I need to announce that due to some 
difficulties, the Defender Tournament has to be delayed.  We received this 
information some hours after I posted the announcement, so I am writing to 
you all to make sure that it is clear our Tournament will not be taking 
place at Three Kings.

I have been given a calendar date of December 15th, and we are working as a 
group to solidify and plan for future tournaments.  Hopefully, (crossing 
fingers) we will be holding the December event as a full event, which makes 
much more opportunities for celebration and grandeur for our Premier Event.

As I am so very sorry to cause anyone any disappointment over the loss of 
this planned activity, I am personally hosting a luncheon at Three Kings and 
inviting the Members of the Order of the Rose, and those of the Rapier 
Community, and all of the volunteer staff, so that those who had planned 
with us, and had shown so much joy over the tournament can share in that 
event with us, and can meet and have fun, and not have to feel the loss of 
disappointment over this delay.

In Love and Service to Ansteorra,

Duchess Larissa Alwynn Clarewoode of Aquitaine, OL, OP
