Greetings unto Ansteorra's populace
>From Lady Arabella de Montacute,
Steward of the 20th Anniversary of Elfsea Defender,
First, let me apologize for multiple postings, some of this information
is very important, I wish for everyone who has the opportunity to hear
(A shameless plug first..) The 20th Anniversary of Elfsea Defender is
this coming weekend, September 25th, 26th, and 27th! We have a great
event planned. I hope all can attend. Lists will run for Heavy,
Rapier, and Archery competitors for the chance to represent Elfsea as
our Defenders. Wonderful prizes and original Scrolls will be awarded to
the tourney winners. Our different Culture Camps, Burgundian, Celtic
and Norse, are a great place to savor and experience other cultures.
Several very exciting acknowledgements will happen during court, as well
as other Court business, and fabulous parties in the evenings.
Sunday there will be a Newcomers List for those who have fought
heavy for less than one year. And the very best, The Gauntlet. This
tourney was to take place at Gothic War, and was rescheduled for Elfsea
Defender. Honourable Lady Kathrine de Laine will be sponsoring this
list and has donated a terrific hand and a half great sword. (The best
reason to stay and fight is the opportunity to win this beautiful
sword.) The list will be run as follows: Everyone will line up in two
rows facing each other. Each fighter will fight all other fighters.
Each fight will last for 3 minutes, points will be scored - 2 for
victory, 1 for a draw, 0 for loss. At the end of round one the top 50
percent fighter scores will advance to the next round. List will
continue in this fashion until only 6 people remain to a double
elimination, and victor.
