[Ansteorra-rapier] Gilwell challenges the world

I think that puts the rapier melees, Iron Star and this challenge all
at 2pm. Court is at 6:30 so 6pm would be the hard limit. We might fit
all that into the space of 4 hours according to how many people want
to fight, how many Iron Star teams we have and what the format is for
the Warlord rapier melees. I'm just saying, be aware the schedule will
be tight.

That said, I would be honored to fight with you.
