The baronial games championship this year will highlight the three
main components of gamesmanship: skill, cunning and luck. There
will be three rounds each with a different game. The first round
will feature a game that is primarily luck based, the second game
will be based on cunning, the final round will take the best four
entrants from the previous rounds and they will compete in a game
of skill for the championship.

The Arts & Science Competition. Entrants must enter
only two works to be judged. The two pieces must be from different
skills, for example a cooking entry and a painted charter. The two
pieces MAY be related or linked so long as each requires different
skills. For example weaving fabric in a period technique for entry
one and sewing it into a tunic for entry two. Written documentation
is required. Oral presentations to the judges on the day of the
competition is encouraged but not required.

The Rapier competition. Three things make a good SCA Fencer. The
first being Chivalry in the form or Courtly Love. The second will
be Bravado in the form of boasting. The third: skill.   For
the first part each of the competitors will be introduced to the
Barroness and in a show of courtly love and Panache compliment her
in a true and chivalric manner. Her Excellency will pick the one
who has shown courtly love with the most flare and Panache and
awards them two ribbons. Each of the competitors will introduce
themself to the Baron and boast on how they will win this
competition. His Excellency will then award two ribbons to the
person with the best bost. Finally, there will be three styles of
fencing: single sword, sword and dagger, and sword and parrying
shield or rod. Each win will award one ribbon. The competitor with
the most ribbons wins. The boasting and courtly love portion of the
rapier can happen at any time, even during dinner.
