The Tournaments will be held on Friday the 27th of February, at Estrella War XXX, in the Town Square. There will be two Lists.

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.
