O’er the Mountains and through the Mists of Legend sounds the
call – “Champions!  Ready thyselves!”

The Baronies of Dragon’s Mist and Three Mountains announce their
Bi-Baronial Championship Event!  Held under the trees at the
lush and green Shute Park, Dragon’s Mist will audition for its new
Bardic Champion and search for its new Youth Champion; Three
Mountains will hunt for its new Rapier champion, and both Baronies
will contest for their new Heavies Champions!  The event will
be a full day of fighting, arts, and fellowship between these two
great Baronies!  And they invite you to take part!

Site opens at 9:30am.  We ask that you bring your own
chairs, garbage bag to haul out your trash, lunch and beverages,
and dayshade.

Armored Champions

Both Baronies are in need of new Heavy Armored Champions. Those
who wish to become a Champion for either barony will process into
Morning Court with their Inspiration and declare their intent to
one barony. It will be a multi-weapon tourney. Current plans also
involve the Barons testing the mettle of the combatants before the
tourney starts. We may also have a special Barons Round.  The
Barony of Three Mountains will be providing a Wooden Chest to the
winner of their competition. The Barony of Dragon’s Mist will also
provide a Wooden Chest to the winner of their
competition. Candidates must have an active Blue

Three Mountain’s Rapier Champion

Three Mountains needs a new Rapier Champion. It will be a
modified London Master’s format  -a test of prowess in four
formats: single sword, sword/dagger, sword/buckler. sword/cloak.
 The Barony of Three Mountains will be providing a Wooden
Chest to the winner of their competition. Candidates
must have an active Blue Card

Dragon’s Mist Bardic Champion

Dragon’s Mist also needs a new Bardic Champion – Intent to enter
must be sent to myself (elizabeth.cothran.bellows at gmail.com) and
Baron Finn (baron at dragonsmist.antir.sca.org) by June 1st, 2017.
 Entrants must:

1.    Have an active
blue card;

2.    Email the intent to enter as stated

3.    Submit a written letter of intent to his
Excellency during Morning Court on the day of the Champions
Tournament (If you need help writing one, let me know and I will
send some examples to help you!);

4.    Be prepared to (if they win), swear
fealty as Champion to his Excellency, promote the Bardic Arts in
the Barony and the Kingdom, and run the Championship the following
year to name their successors, and

5.    Enter two bardic pieces:

a.    A period piece with documentation. This
can be any type of bardic art: singing, theatre, poetry, dance,
etc. If it is a performing art, it will be great. Put effort into
your piece, since this will be the main thing judged. Documentation
does not need to be long, just a summary of your findings, but the
piece must be pre-1650 (though preferably pre-1600, but I’m giving
some leeway for things like Shakespeare). Note: Traditional pieces
like “Loch Lomond” will not be accepted. This is a test of your
anachronistic abilities, since the SCA is an educational

b.    A non-period but SCA appropriate piece.
This can also be any type of bardic art, as long as it is a
different one than the period piece. This doesn’t mean spoken word
vs. singing, it just means don’t do two songs in a row or two
poems. Documentation isn’t needed, but some lyrics/words printouts
would be really appreciated. Some examples I can think of: A song
by Great Big Sea, a period-appropriate poem you wrote, a dance you
choreographed in a particular style, a traditional fairy tale whose
origins are long since forgotten.

Dragon’s Mist Youth Champion

Greetings Fair Populace of Dragon’s Mist
and surrounding Baronies!

The time has come for our Youth Champions to
step down and for a new team of Youths to carry forth the Honor and
Pride of our lands! Calling all youths to the Dragon’s Mist
Youth Championship.

This Championship consist of a two-member
team, a Senior (teen 12-17) and a Junior (youth 6-11) Champion
because Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.

Youth that wishes to compete in the
Dragon’s Mist Youth Championship should be prepared to
declare their intent before His Excellency Finn Grim during opening
court. Then the fun begins…

The Championship will have two parts:

1.    We
will have a Bardic Competition in Any Medium, with Summer as our
theme. Competitors can choose to sing a song, recite a poem, tell a
story or a joke, and so on, of their own making or something they
truly love and wish to perform.


Arts & Sciences, construction of the Catapult, in
popsicle sticks. For the Arts portion of our Championship, kits
will be provided for the competitors to build decorate their own
popsicle stick catapults. Then we will discuss the Science behind
the catapult and why it works, holding our very own launching
competition of fuzzy ‘knights’.

So please come on out and join
us in support of our Youth as they challenge each other for the
Youth Championship of Dragon’s Mist!

Please note, we ask that all Junior
competitors please have their guardian/s with them at all times
during the championship to be and remain eligible to compete. We
are not able to have eyes on all our youth at once so help is asked
in this part and ever so greatly appreciated!

Yours in Service

Lady Renna Ravenswald


Children who are not interested in taking part in the Youth
Championship are welcome to enjoy the Shute Park playground

In addition, Dragon’s Mist will be hosting a Potluck Feast after
Closing Court.  There will be delicious meats, breads, and
condiments for a lovely Spring picnic meal.  Please bring a
side dish or dessert to share. We will have limited space for

After all this revelry, the site will close at 8:30pm.

Please join Dragon’s Mist and Three Mountains in their
Bi-Baronial Championship!

There has been some question about the need for a Blue Card to be a
Champion for either Barony. This is a Corpora Mandate that came out
at this last Seneschal’s Retreat. Since being a Champion is viewed
as the same as holding an Office for the barony and they are loaned
regalia that belongs to the SCA, that person needs to maintain a
membership while in office. This is not either Barony putting in a
requirement, but one that Corpora is through Kingdom.

If you have further questions about this requirement, please
contact either Seneschal who would be happy to explain further.
