So you came to Estrella War early. So you get to fight early. Join the
other early arrivals and enjoy the camaraderie. The Early Bird Tournament
is for those Rapier fighters who are on site and ready to fight early in
the War. It will be a five weapons style prize tourney. Bring a prize
valued at $10-$20 to enter. There will be as many fights as possible, with
everyone fighting every round, and prizes will be given out based on the
number of fights won. Heavy Rapier is the standard, but Cut & Thrust is
encouraged for those authorized.

Atenveldt allowable blade conventions will be observed. Tournament Marshals
and designees will inspect parrying devices, armor, and weapons before each
tournament. Armor standards are those of your home kingdom.

All authorized rapier fighters must provide proof of their authorization in
Heavy Rapier / Cut & Thrust Rapier, or else have a Marshal from their

Friday, February 28, 2014 - List and armor inspection: 2:30 PM

Town Square, Sports field



The Tournaments will be held on Friday the 27th of February, at Estrella
War XXX, in the Town Square. There will be two Lists. His Excellency Seelos
will oversee the Hardsuit list and Her Excellency Elena will have the
Rapier list.  The lists are open to all non-belted and non-white scarf
fighters of the Known World who have been fighting in their respective
disciplines for 3 years or less. Fighters are encouraged to use whichever
weapon form they feel most competent with and may choose a different weapon
form in any round. The Tournament formats will depend on the number of
participants.



Fighters, bring your Consort and any pageantry that you can muster. If you
do not have a consort, we can help find you one. If you would like to be a
consort, please see Her Excellency Elena of Atenveldt at 2:30PM at the list
table.



We ask that the members of the Chivalry and the White Scarf have come
support the young fighters and help to marshal the lists.



The Lists will open at 2:30PM and the tourney will begin at 3:30pm. All
Fighters will go through a formal inspection of armor and weapons. There
will be a medallion for the Overall Victor of each tournament, and also one
for the fighter deemed to be the most Chivalrous by HE Elena’s Ladies
Gallery. Duke Arthur O’Flaherty, Laurel and Knight of the Society crafted
the medallions and entrance favors.

*Estrella War Pistoleer Grandisimo Tournament*

Saturday March 1, 2014 at 9:00am to 10:00am

Rapier Melee Battlefield



Who is the Estrella War "Pistoleer Grandissimo"? This is a “rapier”
tournament in which there are no rapiers. Instead, fighters will
demonstrate their skill and accuracy with one of the war weapons: the
dreaded RBG!

The Third Annual Estrella War Pistoleer shooting tourney will take place
Saturday morning ON THE BATTLEFIELD. This tournament will start on time and
move fast (so we can get back to war!) Bring a legal RBG pistol and 2
rounds of ammo (PISTOL ONLY). Targets will be set and shooters will fire.
Only those who hit will move on to the next round, moving back to the next
range. This will continue until only one remains—the Pistoleer Grandisimo
for Estrella War XXX. Only one can prove themselves the best, and only the
best will be awarded a prize.

Participants will wear armor as they would on the melee field, including
fencing masks and gloves.

A loaner pistol or two will be available for those without.
