Event details
Oyez!  Oyez!  Their Excellencies Mael Eoin & Ysmay, Baron & Baroness of mighty Bhakail have called on Their martial champions to find successors!  The tourney fields of Bhakail will again open their lists to all gentles seeking the honor of becoming Bhakail's next champion. 

Heavy Weapons & Fencing Championship
Fighters & Fencers who intend to compete for the championship will be introduced to their Excellencies, by a herald of their choosing.  If they have banners, heraldry, etc they should have that for the pageantry.  Those gentles not declaring that they intend to compete for the championship do not have to do this.

The actual tournament will be two fold.  A round robin type and a points hunting type.

The first part of the tournament will be a loosely based round robin type format, single pass.  You will need to fight each combatant at least once, in any order you wish.  The number of wins you get in this portion is your base value for the second part of the tournament.
The second part of the tournament is a challenge tourney.  Every combatant is worth a certain number of points based on a two factors:  their score from the Round Robin and any kingdom fighting/fencing awards they may hold. 

Before this section of the tournament begins the combatants with the top five scores will be announced.

The format for this section is VERY simple.  Fight as much or as little as you choose.  Combatants will need to challenge other combatants to fights, with the winner reporting the number of points that they receive for their victories.  This section of the tournament will be timed, based on when I am told we need to wrap up by. 

The tournament winner will be the person with the highest score at the end of the time limit.

There will be a prize for the tournament winner, regardless for whether they are fighting to win the championship or not.

Lord Hrouland will be running a Youth Combat tournament or meelee for experienced fighters.  When the tourney/melee is over, there will be loaner gear available for first-timers and the curious to try it out!  If you have gear, please bring it.  The more gear we have, more kids can have fun.

Other Activities:
Chess and other medieval games will be played for the gentles who come but do not fence/fight.  Lord Michel Wolffaur will be running a chess tournament.  He promises it will be interesting period forms of chess, not what your grandfather has taught you!
