>From the pen of Don Modius - 

> 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
> http://www.modius.org/Guardian.html
> 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,

> Note: To all Youth Rapier fighters, the Guardian of
