Come one and all to the the Shire of Coeur du Val as we celebrate the successful siege of LEBUS castle by Ludwig of Thuringia!  Our weekends's offerings include a Heavy Fighting Single-Sword and Mythical Beastie Tourney, Rapier Tourney, Archery and Thrown Weapons Competitions, and Arts and Sciences, Bardic, and Scholarship Competitions with prizes for all victors!  There will also be prizes for the Best Fighting Kit and Most Chivalrous Fighter (heavy and rapier combined), to be judged by the Laurels present and the Populace.  There will be dancing, and we'll show you the steps so that everyone can participate!  For the very young, we'll have our traditional fun-noodle and water balloon joust!  Lebus is also the event at which CDV’s shire champion is chosen, with A&S, Archery, Heavy, Rapier, Performance, Thrown Weapons and Scholarship categories.  The championship features political machinations and possibly bribery. Get in on the action!

Rules for various Competitions:


1.     Main Tourney: (Heavy) Single, One-handed Sword, Single-elimination, First-blood, Destructive Double-Kills.


2.     Mythical Beastie Tourney: (Heavy) Armored combatants must attempt to resemble some character or likeness from mythology. "Mythology" is rather broadly defined. All “beastie” components must be affixed in such a way as to not endanger opponents, self or spectators. All fighters must meet minimum An TIR and SCA armor standards. Beasties’ powers beyond the rattan-related are open to negotiation between fighters. An intermission will be held mid way through tourney, during which fighters or their designated speakers will explain their entry.



3.     T-Rex Tourney:  (Heavy) Armored combatants must strap their upper arms to their chests in a secure manner so that all mobility is restricted to the forearm. They then may take up weapon of their choice, and fight to the death (with killing force) whilst acting in a giant extinct beastly manner. RAWR!



4.     Rapier tourney:
