Mason County Fairgrounds
Shelton, WA.

Once again the drums of war sing their siren songs. Come join the baronies
of Aquaterra and Glymm Mere as they duel in the dirt of the Mason County
Fairgrounds in their annual dustup at what has been called “the friendliest
war in An Tir.” Theme? We don’t need no stinkin’ theme!!

War points will be given in arts and sciences, siege cooking, children’s
activities, archery, rapier, and of course the war itself. Sunday morning
will feature a three-fighter team tourney sponsored by Northern Thunder, and
if weather and interest permit, the always off-center Wacky Tacky Water War.

1. ELIGIBILITY: This tournament is open to any adult member who is willing
and able to swear undivided fealty or service to the Coronets of Glymm Mere.
Lists will close at a specified time to be determined prior to the
championship event, as will the completion time.

2. EQUIPMENT: This tournament will require the competitor to use two
different bows during the target portion and also have available SCA legal
light armor and equipment for the Glymm Mere challenge. It is suggested
that the Barony provide access to the loaner heavy armor during the
tournament and all light fighters bring their equipment for loan during the

3. SCORING: The scoring for this tournament will depend on the number of
competitors, with each portion accounting for one third of the final score.
(EXAMPLE: with 5 competitors, the winner of each portion would receive 5
points, 2nd place 4 points, etc.) Once the competition is completed, the
scores will be added and high score wins. In case of a tie, the competitor
who defeated the other in the GM challenge will be declared the winner.

4. TOURNAMENT RULES: The tournament will consist of two An Tir Royal Rounds
and a combat tourney called the Glymm Mere Challenge. The Royal Rounds may
be shot throughout the day while a specific period of time will be set aside
for the GM Challenge.

A. The Royal Rounds require the use of two different bows in two different
divisions (i.e. longbow1 and crossbow; open and longbow2; etc.)
Competitors will be shooting alongside non-competitors and may shoot as many
RRs as they wish. Tournament scores will be kept on a separate scoresheet.
Period scoring will not be allowed and the competitor will declare their
championship RR prior to beginning that round.

B. The Glymm Mere Challenge is a round robin one-on-one tourney modified
from the Kingdom Protector tournament. Each competitor must conform to An
Tir light combat armor and weapon standards, and will be limited to 12
missiles. Competitors will be inspected prior to the beginning of the
tournament and a designated marshall will inspect every arrow fired prior to
it being returned to the competitors quiver. Points for legs and arms
remain the same as in the Kingdom Protector tournament. If the quiver is
struck, one arrow is lost, if the bow is struck, it becomes unuseable; there
are no points for striking either the bow or quiver. Any arrow that touches
the ground is dead and may not be gleaned. There will be two 40” 2X12
boards placed 30 yards apart. The competitors may angle the board to their
liking. Competitors must keep both feet on the board. If either foot
strikes the ground, they are “dead”. The only exception is when legged,
they must place both knees on the board.

Hello all…

The theme for Honey War is going to be Children’s classes and activities — I am looking for teachers to help with any type of topic that can fit in with or involve kiddies…. I know time is short (argh!! *smile*) but I’m still trying to find some teachers for misc. topics…

So if you’re interested or want to share your knowledges, skills or talents, please let me know!! 🙂 I’m also working on AnTir / West War and July Coronation (tentative) — so if you are interested for those events too email me at moc.nedsregdab@sessalc
