Caidan Rapier Open 2009
Her Majesty, Queen Mora presided over the event's courts.
Most of the fighters fought for the honor of Duchess Kolfinna, a few choosing to fight for Duke Sven Örfhendur. Frequently one could hear a shout, "For Sir Kolfinna!" or "For Their Graces!" Our hope was that they could "hear" our dedications and draw strength from our strength.
- Adelais de la Jupe Cramoisie, Lachlan of Cromarty and Zhivana Igorevna Adelais were admitted to the Order of the Duellist of Caid.
- The "Uber Elf" list, a round robbin where each combat consists of between six and eleven fights, was exhausting, but fun.

Hear ye, Hear ye! All rapier fighters, you are called to the shores of Lyondemere to participate in the annual Caid Rapier Open. Our current champion wishes the day to be full of fighting, so the list to determine the next champion will be an "uber-elf" style tournament. This means fighters will be divided into pools. Each fighter will face all fighters in their pool with each weapon form (single sword, baton, buckler, cloak, then dagger. Extra secondaries will be available for loan if you need them.)
Location: Cal State University Long Beach - South Campus Lawn (upper Quad area), 1250 Bellflower Blvd., Long Beach, CA, 90840
The site is not overly sprawling, and has many shade-providing trees. But, because the lawn is broken, field-side locations are very few. If you wish a space along the list field, please send your request and the footprint of your pavilion to THLady Meala Caimbeul at rapieropen09atlyondemere.org - Priority will be given to geo-political groups before households and individuals.
Merchants are possible; please contact Lord Andreu Miller, noe @ lyondemere.org for further details.
There are no restrictions on food, but BBQs are not allowed. If you don’t want to pack food, there is an on-campus food court (Panda Express, Subway, Carls Jr., Taco Bell, El Pollo Loco, Sabarro's, etc.).
This is a dry event - alcohol is not permitted in the public areas of campus.
