Washington Blvd Parklet near the Zoo. Come show your support for our younger members!

NEW CHAMPIONS!

Today, on the 23rd day of June in the 54th year of the society The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands has selected new Archery and Fencing Champions.

First Lord Skjoldr Bjorn conducted a well designed, fun and challenging archery shoot to select our next archery champion. The shoot winnowed down the field of 15 archers to produce Lady Katheryn Taentzel as the new archery champion. Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope agreed to stand as her second.

Then Don Ru Cavorst ran a round robin tournament amongst the fencers to select finalists to vie for the position of fencing Champion. After 5 passes in the final Don Jorundr hinn Rotinn stood as the new fencing champion. Mistress Irene von Schmetterling agreed to stand as his second.

We wish to thank Lord Skjoldr for his service as our Archery Champion, Don Ru for his service as our Fencing Champion, Lady Arthes for marshaling the archery range so that new archers could practice while the championship was held and Mistress Anna for her service as Mistress of the List.

And Congratulations to our new Archery Champion Lady Katheryn and our Fencing Champion Don Jorundr! We look forward to both of their performances at the Pennsic Baronial Champions tournaments and at the Seven Pearls Championships to be held at Shoot in the Wyldwood.

Cheers,

Brandubh et Hilderun

Archery and Rapier Champs on Sunday! And Timing

Hello Debatable Lands! Here’s your last reminder! 🙂

The Baronial Archery Championship is THIS Sunday, 6/23. The Championship will begin at 11:30 am, with sign-in starting at 11am. Lord
Skjoldrbjorn has created quite the shoots, so be prepared to test your mettle! [Note: Youth archery champs is on 6/30]

The Baronial Rapier Championship is THIS Sunday, 6/23. We will be starting the Tournament at 2pm to give everyone a chance to warm up and sign in with the MOL. It will be a round robin or bear pit to choose a final four in a double elimination.

These pageantry, sportsmanship, and camaraderie of our Championships is quite the experience, as anyone attending or participating in Heavy or TW two weeks ago will tell you. It was heart-lifting, and we expect these contests will be, too. We look forward to seeing spectators and participants show the best of the Barony tomorrow. See you there!

( And don’t forget sunscreen)

In Levitate et Caritate, and Cheers,
Baron Brandubh and Baroness Hilda

Baronial Martial Championships This June!

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
