Event Steward Don Todde

Bring your blades, your friends, your friends’ blades, and your prowess to the Shire of Isles for a day full of fun, camaraderie, and skill amid cool ocean breezes. This year's Kingdom Rapier Championship will offer two group round-robins for all contestants, followed by melees for Caid's melee units to test their skill against their rivals. Following the event, we foresee the very period expedient of talking about fighting for hours over pizza.

10:30 Opening Court
11:15 Championship Lists Close
12:00 Kingdom Championship

Memories

From Lachlan of Cromarty

  • The day was warm, but tolerable with the park's trees and a gentle breeze in the afternoon.
  • The King authorized in rapier combat at the event wearing a fuchsia coat borrowed from Mealla Caimbeul that He seemed to enjoy wearing (later a fellow from Starkhafn explained to us that fuchsia was one of His colors -- the "new sable")
  • Fighting was good and plentiful
