Hello Debatable Lands! We are happy to announce the dates for our Martial Championships this year!
Sunday, June 9th – Thrown Weapons and Heavy Fighting
(June 16th rain date)
Sunday, June 23rd – Archery and Rapier Fighting
(June 30th rain date)
Sunday, June 30th – Youth Archery and Youth Fighting
(rain date tbd)
Our Equestrians Champs will be held later in year.
Attaining the Championship of the Largest Barony in the Kingdom is a great honor, and we can’t wait to see the prowess of our martial enthusiast on the fields and ranges!
As usual, only Debatable Landers and those that hold Friend of the Barony (Green/Cometus Amicus) Comets are eligible to become Champions, except for the Youth Championships. For both Youth Championships, we allow Youths from our neighboring groups eligibility, since their opportunity for glorious competition of this type is far less than what adults enjoy across the Kingdom.
Besides the Glory and Honor of representing the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands, winning our Baronial Championship also means you can join us in our Baronial Court on the dais, you can participate in Known World Baronial Champions’ activities at Pennsic, and you may display the regalia of the honor you achieved. You also have the honor representing the Debatable Lands in the Seven Pearls Championship, where all seven Baronial Champions in the Kingdom will compete to be the BEST of the Best in their respective areas. The Seven Pearls Championships will be held in Delftwood on Labor Day weekend this year.
We look forward to it!
In Levitate et Caritate, and Cheers
Baron Brandubh and Baroness Hilda
