Angels Anniversary & Investiture 2015
From the Crown Prints
(Personal information removed) Come join us on the joyous occasion of the Barony of the Angels' Sapphire Anniversary--45 years since its birth. We will commemorate our Harvest Celebration with a Grande Tournament of Baronial Champions!
Like the changing of the seasons, we will honor the services of Baron Peter Cadarn and Baroness Gabrielle nicChlurain at their final court before the Investiture of Sir Uilliam mór MacGregor and THLady Fara MacGregor as the new Baron and Baroness of the Angels. Once court closes, let the 'Games of the Baronial Throne' begin!
ARTS & SCIENCES CHAMPION: "Show your Allegiance" with heraldic display is the Arts & Sciences theme. Enter your latest and greatest work in the People’s Choice Competition and Angels Baronial Championship! Documentation is not required for the People’s Choice Competition, however, it is required to enter the Baronial Arts Championship. Laurels who vote in the People’s Choice Competition get an additional token worth five points to bestow upon their favorite entry. Prizes will be awarded in People’s Choice Competition for Adult and Youth (age 12 and under) divisions.
ARMORED COMBAT CHAMPION: Everyone needs a "warm-up" prior to fighting and this year it will be--Sheep Football! Come join the fun and warm-up for the main event.
Angels’ new Armored Champion will be determined by a standard single-elimination heavy weapons list. Fighters can earn an extra life by entering any work in the A&S competition or join in the Bardic Circle. Only one extra life per fighter.
RAPIER CHAMPION: Rapier fighters will be entered into 5-person pools. The top two fighters in each pool will enter single elimination to determine the champion. Fighters can earn an extra life by entering any work in the A&S competition or Bardic Circle. The extra life can only be used during the pools and only one extra life per fighter.
UNARMORED COMBAT CHAMPION: A new Unarmored Combat Champion will be chosen in a standard list format.
YOUTH COMBAT: Youth Combat will begin immediately after Opening Court for the following age groups: Up to 6 years, 7-9, 10-13 and 14-16. Young warriors must wear closed-toe shoes and parents must be present while their children compete.
