Aquaterra

Snohomish County, WA

Autocrat: Rosamund of the Misty Meadows device395OP

 

...Hail An Tir!

The time has come again to celebrate the greatness of Aquaterra as this years Champions are chosen. But do not forget the hunt for the mighty Boar! This is two glorious events combined into one wonderful weekend! On Saturday we will be having our traditional Boar Hunt. Come join Aquaterra's fiercest warriors as they hunt down the ferocious boar. We will be having a fun novelty Archery shoot, and Thrown Weapons contests. That evening we also will be opening the Inn of the Whirling Swine in the honour of Aquaterra's own Mastyr Robyrt of Watyrside with food cooked by Aquaterra's finest Baroness Fiamma! Tickets for the feast are very limited and can be purchased at Gate. 

On Saturday we also will be watching as our newest slate of Champions are chosen. Come and watch as we celebrate the Arts and Sciences, Bardic and Gamesmanship. Watch also, the skill of the rapier and the precision of the archers and marksman. Stay for Sunday when we will watch as armor is donned and our Youth and Heavy champions are chosen. 

We will again be at the beautiful Masonic Park in Granite Falls.

Styrr Inn-Hersir Olafsson

Bardic Champion, Aquaterra

Arts and Sciences Championship 

 

It gives me great pleasure to announce the requirements for the Arts and Sciences Championship which

will be held Saturday, June 21:

Submit two entries – these entries may be either items or research papers (or one of each).

Now for the catch (come on, you knew there had to be one). Both entries must relate to the same persona

(big surprise, huh?). This need not be your persona, just the same persona. i.e. a weaver from Tudor

London, a monk from 13th century Florence, a Jarl from 9th century Birka, a lady from 16th century

Poland – use your interests and imagination – research something new!

More information will be forthcoming later, but I wanted to get this posted so that you can get planning and

working.

If you have any question, please feel free to contact me off list.

Send letters of intent to Baron Steinolf steinolf@gmail.com

Baronial Youth Armored Combat Championship 

The All Champions Tourney is scheduled for the Sunday June 22 of the Boars Hunt/All Champions

Weekend. The qualifications for the Baronial Championship are posted below this write up, so please

read this over carefully for there are some specific items that might affect those youths currently in the

YAC program. I bring this up not to try and dissuade anybody from entering the tourney, but to make sure

they understand that this is different from a normal tournament.

I will address one item in particular. Youths from all three divisions are welcome to enter the tournament,

however, the Baronial Champion will be chosen from the Dragon Division only for reasons of duty and

responsibility.

For those who wish to enter, please inform me of your intention after sending your letter of intent (email) to

Their Excellencies Baron Steinolf steinolf@gmail.com, and Baroness Sineidin sera.kendal@gmail.com

(this is so I have a good idea of who will all be attending).

If you have questions regarding the letter of intent, please let me know.

Please find below the specific requirements and format for the YAC Tournament.

COMPETITION FORMAT

 a) The entrants must attend morning court the day of the tournament and be prepared to present

themselves to their Excellencies along with the other competitors when they are called forth for the

invocation. 

 b) The entrants must present themselves to the YAC Warden following court the day of the tournament to

declare their intentions to enter the competition.

 c) The entrants must have a parent or guardian present at all times during the competition.

 d) The entrant must pass armor inspection and have a clear understanding of the rules of combat as set

forth in the An Tir Book of Youth Armoured Combat.

 e) It should be understood that youth champions, as opposed to adult champions, may not be considered

officers of the SCA and shall have no corporate responsibilities.

 f) The tournament will be fought in a round robin format. All combatants will be allowed to fight each other

at least once. At the end, the two combatants with the highest ratio of wins to loses will fight in a separate

"finals tournament" the format being the best two out of three.

 g) The “Finals Tournament” will be a best out of three separate bouts. In the past, theses competitions

have each featuring a different set of weapons; Sword & Shield, Great Swords & Glaves. However, I will

give the two finalists a choice as to which weapons they would like to use in the Finals bout.

Please Note: If used, the Great Weapons will be supplied to the combatants but it is expected they will

bring their own sword & shield.

the win. We will start practice 30 min. after court on Saturday, June 21, and start the competition at 11

am as it will take several hours to complete the contest.

phydeaux121@yahoo.com no later than June 19, 2014.

 – Current Champion: Lord Phydeaux Weir

 

Gamesmanship Championship

The Challenge will be held on Saturday, June 21. As different people are skilled in different areas - ie..

strategy, physical prowess, luck… I thought it would be a fairer and truer test to have a challenge that

includes 3 games that require these different skill sets.

Game of the Goose - luck of the dice - multiplayer - 1 game - all challengers play at same time

Bocce Ball - physical prowess - multiplayer - 1 game - all challengers play at same time

Mancala - Strategy - multiplayer - 1 game - all challengers play at same time - I have a board that

accomodates up to 4 people.

Players get points at the end of each game: 

1st = 5pts

2nd = 4pts

3rd = 3pts

4th = 2 pts

The player with the highest point total after all the games are played is the winner.

- In the event of a tie for first place, there will be a Tafl tournament to break the tie.

Those wishing to compete are invited to send a letter of intent to His Excellency Baron Steinolf:

steinolf@gmail.com, Her Excellency, Baroness Sineidin at sera.kendal@gmail.com and to myself at

lynnestartup@frontier.com no later than June 19, 2014.

Baronial Equestrian Championship

Their Excellencies Steinolf Ketilsson and Sineidin inghean an Bhiadtaigh, Baron and Baroness of

Aquaterra, are pleased to announce the Equestrian Championship of the Barony of Aquaterra. Like last

year, this competition will be in the form of a quest, which officially begins at Aquaterra's All Champions/

Boars Hunt (June 20-22, 2014).

Scores from any equestrian contest held at any SCA event in the Knowne World will count towards thetotal accrued score (including those which occur between the date of this announcement and the official

invocation at All Champions/Boars Hunt). Competitors will need to get the Equestrian Marshal in Charge

(EMIC) to verify their placing in the event, the event name/date, and the number of competitors, as this is

part of the scoring calculations. Scores for the Championship must be submitted by Friday September

20th, 2013 and the Equestrian Champion of Aquaterra shall be announced and inducted during Evening

Court at Banner War.

Scoring Information:

Competitors get points based on their overall standing for an event anywhere in the SCA:

1st place= 5 points x the number of competitors

2nd= 4 x # of competitors

3rd= 3 points x # of competitors

4th place= 2 points x # of competitors

5th place= 1 point x # of competitors

1 Point for every event competed but not placed in

Just like in archery, the competitors score will be based on an average of their top three scores – this

means that every candidate will need to compete in a minimum of three equestrian competitions, but the

greater the number of events, the better the chance for a good score.

Eligibility:

· All entrants must be paid members of the SCA, Inc.

· All entrants must be at least 18 years of age.

· All entrants must present themselves in Opening Baronial Court on Saturday morning at All

Champions/Boars Hunt when the competitors for each competition are called forth, to proclaim their intent

· All entrants must submit proof of membership, modern and SCA names and complete contact

information (e-mail if applicable and phone number) right after Opening Court (or with their Letter of

Intent). Failure to provide proof of membership will result in immediate disqualification. Entrants must

assume responsibility for reading the rules of the Championship and complying with all parts of those

rules.
