Queens Rapier Championship

A message from Her Majesty regarding the Queens Rapier Championship:


Queens Rapier Championship is fast approaching.  In preparation We would like to share the following information concerning the tournament and Our plans for the Processional.

The Processional will be held during Opening Court on Saturday morning. We ask that the rapier community show as much pageantry as possible.  We would love to see everyone in their fancy clothes and to bring your personal banners to display.

The order of the Processional will be simple this year, based on the individual fighters rapier OP rank:

1. Kingdom and Principality champions

2. MoD (by OP)

3. White Scarf (by OP)

4. All other entrants (by OP)

Remember you are fighting to honor your inspiration. It is preferable for inspirations to be present for the processional, tournament, and finals. Please put some thought into your introduction. The Queen would like to hear your name, your inspiration's name, and your requested intention to fight in the tournament.

Preparation for the tournament will occur after Opening court. This is to allow fighters time to get into their fighting gear.

There will be a quick processional before the tournament to create a challenge round.

The format of the tournament will be once more be a sweet 16. We will have 4 fields and will be holding a round robin in each field. The top 4 fighters in each field will advance to a single elimination tournament. The finals will be best 2 out of 3.

As part of the desire for pageantry we will be using shield boards this year. Please be prepared and have a shield board with your heraldry on one side, and your name on the other. Shield boards for the Lists in An Tir are expected to be of the following dimensions 4 x 3.75, should have holes drilled in the center top and center bottom no less than 3/16 in diameter and no more than 7/16 from the top edge and no more than 7/16 from the bottom edge. Further the board should be thin enough to be hung by the hooks (about 1/8). It is my hope some extra boards will be available on the day at the list table. Please do not count of this. Come prepared.

If you brought banners for the processional plan to keep them out on display. Pageantry is welcome. 

Some rules for the tournament. Period looking shoes will be required. No tennis shoes will be permitted. No equipment bags will be allowed in the room. The room is too small to have the bags present. Think about leaving them in you room or car and just bringing in what you need. We need to keep those area around the field clear for people moving around the fields and populous to watch. No case or 2 handed weapons will be allowed in the tournament.

If you are not fighting and are willing to help marshal the tournament please contact the MIC prior to the day.
