~Saturday~

9:00 AM: (Suck it up. Small price to pay for Glory!) List opens. Inspections authorizations, and pickups for the hungry. Rapier and Rattan.
10:00 AM: Armored Baronial Championship Tourney. Witness the armored champions of each Midlands Barony take the field to win honor and glory for their lieges!
11:00 AM: Armored Pool tourney. Come one, come all! All may enter, only one may win!
11:00 AM: Rapier Round Robin Tourney. For the Baronesses! Flourish your skill, and win the day!

1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Melee Scenarios for Rattan and open field for Rapier pickups.

Scenarios:

Classic Open field Battles: Run five times. Don’t bother taking your helmet off between rounds.

Classic Castle Battle: One side will defend for time, the other will attack, unlimited resurrections. The sides will then switch places.

Grand Melee: Fighters will be divided into Four Companies and assemble, armed at all points, upon the four corners of the List field. These four Companies will be given a name of Peerless worth to be used as their battle cry. These names shall be:
Alzbeta
Caroline
Epona
Nadezda

At the call, these Companies, spurred on by the Nobility and Splendor of their Battle cries, will deliver Knightly blows upon their fellows.
When a fighter has been struck thrice, they will quit the field. They are then free to rejoin the fray immediately.
The combat will continue until all are satisfied, or until Their Excellencies call us to other duties.

Special Notes:
1. For this scenario, there will be NO acting out of blows. You will NOT kneel in the dust, and you will not lose a limb.
2. When struck, cry loudly the number of the blows you have received.
3. The number of your counted blows does NOT depend on engagement. You keep the count until you are bested, at which time you quit the field and then may return with a fresh count.
4. Lustfully deliver your respective battle cries to reform with your fellows or declare your defiance to others.
5. After you have been bested, and you have quit the field, you may return at any time of YOUR choosing, be that immediately, or after you have refreshed yourself.
The opportunity to do Great Deeds in the presence of your Sovereigns is more precious than gold. I admonish you to understand this rare gift, and prepare yourself so that the Middle Kingdom, and Chivalry may be richly served.
