Heavy Combat Tournament

Lists open at 10:30 am and close promptly at 11:30 am. The
main tournament will determine the 22nd Baronial
Defender of Terra Pomaria!  The tourney will be fought
best two of three fights all three fight will be fought
There are three weapon styles, the first fight will be Sword
and shield, second will be great sword, and third will be
great maces. 
the tourney format is double
elimination.   If you have any
questions please feel free to contact me.

Helm Auction

The Baroness is holding a helm auction. The fighters who
participate place their helms in a line, the auctioneer then
sell the skills of the owner of the helm to the highest
bidder. (so, no you are not selling your helm only your skill
as a fighter). The fighters then compete in a heavy
tournament to be determined.   Whoever bid on the
helm of the fighter who wins will receive a
prize.  To the
winner goes the spoils!! The helm Auction part is to be “The
greatest donation to the barony for said helm in the field
gives the bidder the right to be that fighter’s inspiration
and support during the tournament” with no binds to the prize
being mentioned. The unspoken part is that all the fighters
involved should understand under SCA code that if they are
victorious, it is only right and just to share their winnings
with the one who inspired and supported them to the victory
thereby exhibiting the chivalry and honor that all fighters
should exude.

Rapier Competition

Rapier competition is tentative based on time and
participants.  This site does not accomodate archery
competitions.  The Archery Championship of Terra Pomaria
took place at Bar Gemels this year and the winner of the
tournament, Maccus of Elgin, will be elevated by ceremony as
the new champion at this event.
